Wolves back to winning ways
London - Wolverhampton Wanderers beat Wigan Athletic 3-1 for their first Premier League victory since August on Sunday to leave their opponents rooted to the foot of the table.
Goals for David Edwards and Stephen Ward after the break sealed victory for the home side after the visitors had equalised just before half-time through Ben Watson.
Wolves, who began the season well before a worrying slump in form, had taken the lead through Jamie O'Hara.
The home side moved up to 13th in the table with 11 points.
Wigan are bottom with five points after eight consecutive Premier League defeats.
Later on Sunday (1600 GMT), Tottenham Hotspur aim to continue their impressive recent run when they visit Fulham while struggling Bolton Wanderers host Stoke City (1500).
Wolves went in front after 31 minutes when O'Hara was on hand to convert from close range from Kevin Doyle's cross.
They could not protect the lead until the interval, however. Stephen Hunt fouled Emmerson Boyce in the area and although Watson's penalty was saved by Wayne Hennessey he was able to convert the rebound.
Wolves regained the lead after 55 minutes when Edwards thumped the ball into the net after Wigan keeper Ali Al Habsi had made two superb reflex saves in quick succession.
Ward added the third for Wolves after 66 minutes, again after Al Habsi had performed wonders to keep out an O'Hara effort but was left exposed by his defenders' failure to react fast enough to the danger.
