Summary:l

Four consecutive defeats had left Wigan sweating son relegation again but this was an important victory with Fulham being one of the chasers down in the relegation zone. Win for Wigan would take them five points clear of them, a loss just one point ahead. Huge game but it was never in doubt. Wigan too strong for the capital side.
