Kone fires Latics to victory
Wigan's survival bid gathered pace as Arouna Kone's goal nine minutes from time secured a 1-0 win over Norwich and made it three wins in a row for Roberto Martinez's side.
Last season a point at Carrow Road in March provided the impetus for the Latics to win seven of their last 10 games and engineer another great escape - and Saturday's three points lifted them out of the Barclays Premier League's bottom three.
Wigan were lacklustre for an hour but the threat on the Norwich goal grew and grew and, after Antolin Alcaraz had seen a header cleared off the line, it was Kone who fired home from the edge of the box.
