Injury-hit Sunderland thrashed Wigan 4-1 to earn their first Barclays Premier League victory at the DW Stadium and ensure Martin O'Neill's golden start to life at the Black Cats continued.

Wigan dominated the first half, with one shot cleared off the line and two hitting the woodwork but they went into the break behind as Craig Gardner took advantage of the swirling wind to power a 30-year free-kick into the top corner.

James McClean extended the lead with his first Sunderland goal and, although Hugo Rodallega briefly gave Wigan hope with his first of the season, Sunderland sealed the points through Stephane Sessegnon and David Vaughan.
