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.
