Lee Bowyer´s first West Ham goal in 35 games saved his team´s bacon after Austrian Paul Scharner threatened to snatch an undeserved win for Wigan at Upton Park.

There were just 12 minutes left when Scharner struck with an acrobatic overhead kick to give Wigan the lead - right against the run of play.

But then came substitute Bowyer´s strike just two minutes later and Curbishley said: "Lee has been desperate for a goal. He did everything right to get in there earlier when Luis (Boa Morte) broke through and he just missed out but I was delighted for him when it finally happened."
