Substitute Jason Roberts sealed three precious points for Blackburn as they recorded a 2-1 victory over fellow relegation strugglers Wigan at Ewood Park with a 66th minute strike.

Roberts beat the offside trap to convert Brett Emerton's right-wing cross and add to Morten Gamst Pedersen's free-kick opener eight minutes earlier.

Charles N'Zogbia reduced the deficit from a free-kick in the 74th minute but Rovers had the last chance when David Dunn somehow poked wide from a Pascal Chimbonda cross.
