Martinez delighted with Wigan win

Published Add your comment

Wigan manager Roberto Martinez lauded his players after they dispatched of Southampton in the newly-promoted club's first home Premier League game for seven years.

Franco Di Santo's classy strike and a late Arouna Kone effort helped the Latics secure their first points of the season - something that had looked unlikely early on.

"I think to say I am pleased would be an understatement," Martinez said. "I am very, very satisfied because we knew how difficult it would be and I thought the first half an hour showed that."
