Wigan beats Sunderland 2-1 to move off EPL bottom

Wigan moved off the bottom of the Premier League after beating

Sunderland 2-1 Saturday with a goal from substitute Franco Di Santo

in stoppage time.

Wigan claimed its first league away win this season after Wes

Brown was caught in possession by James McArthur, who squared for

Di Santo to shoot into an empty net.

Earlier, Sebastian Larsson had fired Sunderland into an

eighth-minute lead at the Stadium of Light.

Jordi Gomez equalized from the penalty spot before the interval

after Victor Moses had gone down under Larsson’s challenge.

Wigan is 19th with nine points from 13 games, two points ahead

of Blackburn which lost 3-1 at Stoke.
