Wigan 3-0 Blackburn

Dec 14, 2008

Antonio Valencia inspired Wigan to victory over Blackburn to pile more pressure on Rovers boss Paul Ince.

Emile Heskey’s backheel, followed two minutes later by Valencia’s low drive, gave Wigan a perfect start as they dominated the first half.

Substitute David Dunn gave Rovers more attacking threat, but their best chance came from Ryan Taylor’s near own-goal.

And the visitors were caught off guard when Valencia’s cross fell to Lee Cattermole to wrap up a 3-0 win.

Rovers have now lost six successive league games and are without a win in 10, leaving them second from bottom.
