Bolton Vs. Wigan, 2012 Premier League: Latics Earn Key Win

Wigan Athletic earned a vital three points at the Reebok as Bolton Wanderers suffered yet another home loss. Roberto Martinez will be thrilled at his team's performance as they dominated the first half, eventually going 1-0 up via the head of Gary Caldwell in the 43rd minute. Bolton had offered approximately nothing before halftime, and any hope that they'd make a push for the equaliser after the break was sadly misguided - they were just as poor in the second.

That didn't stop them getting a goal against the run of play, however. Chance after chance for Wigan went unconverted and the hosts finally made them pay when Mark Davies converted some route one play to smash past Ali Al-Habsi and bring the match back to level pegging. However, Bolton threw away their point with some awful defensive play. Sam Ricketts attempted a back header to Adam Bogdan only for the ball to be intercepted by Victor Moses and then poked in at the second attempt by James McCarthy, and despite a late flurry by the Trotters it was enough for a 2-1 Wigan win.
