Wigan's woes worsen

20 April 2013 05:47

The chances of another famous Wigan escape act took a severe blow as they were beaten 2-0 at West Ham.

Fresh from their midweek draw with Barclays Premier League leaders Manchester United, the hosts scored once in either half to leave Wigan in the relegation zone and put another dent in the FA Cup finalist's survival bid.

A first Upton Park goal for Matt Jarvis and a Kevin Nolan volley secured the win which moved Sam Allardyce's side into the top 10, although they were second best for much of the second half with the Latics unable to make their dominance pay.
