A superb second-half fightback from Fulham gave them a 2-1 win over a Wigan side who remain in trouble on the edge of the relegation zone.

Goals from substitute Stefano Okaka and Brede Hangeland completed the home side's recovery after Jason Scotland's first Barclays Premier League goal for Wigan had put them in front in the 34th minute.

The defeat leaves Wigan just four points clear of the relegation places, while Fulham remain on course for another top-10 finish so coveted by boss Roy Hodgson.
