Two goals in three minutes late in the first half gave Everton a 2-1 victory they scarcely deserved to lift them into the top four of the Barclays Premier League.

Andy Johnson´s sixth goal of the season was swiftly followed by a seventh this campaign from Joleon Lescott that again proved to be the winner after his decisive strike against Manchester City last week.

Wigan managed to pull one back early in the second half courtesy of an own goal from Phil Jagielka, only to fall short in salvaging a point their dominance deserved.
