Norwich makes it 10 games unbeaten with 2-1 win
Norwich extended its unbeaten run in the English Premier League
to 10 games by beating Wigan 2-1 from Wes Hoolahan’s second-half
winning goal on Saturday.
After Wigan forward Shaun Maloney equalized in the 51st minute
to cancel out midfielder Anthony Pilkington’s 15th-minute opener,
Hoolahan struck in the 64th to give Norwich its fifth straight home
win in the league at Carrow Road.
Norwich hasn’t lost in the league since going down 4-1 at
Chelsea on Oct. 6.
Norwich provisionally rose five places to seventh in the
standings, two points from the last Champions League place in
manager Chris Hughton’s first season at the club.
Wigan has only one win in its past seven league matches to
remain in 18th spot in the standings.
