Wigan (0) 1 Fulham (1) 2


Premier League, Fulham, Wigan, press coverage Hugo Rodallega refused to celebrate his first goal since January despite Fulham rising to the giddy heights of fourth place.

Inspired by Dimitar Berbatov, Fulham gave their hosts a footballing lesson - no mean feat against Roberto Martinez's side, who are easy on the eye.

And ex-Wigan striker Rodallega showed a touch of class when he scored the opener after 31 minutes.

The striker nodded home Berbatov's clever cross but resisted the temptation to show any elation at the expense of the club he left in the summer.

Rodallega received applause from the home faithful for his gesture but Wigan fans were less patient with their own team.

Jordi Gomez was booed for shooting instead of passing to well-placed team-mate Shaun Maloney and the crowd even displayed rare disapproval towards Martinez, who delayed until the 76th minute before sending on exciting winger Ryo Miyaichi.

Martinez will point to some bad luck - Gomez hitting the underside of the bar - and misses from Arouna Kone and Mauro Boselli.

But Fulham were worth their win, with Bryan Ruiz holding off three defenders to set up D amien Duff for the second goal after 68 minutes.

Manager Martin Jol said: 'Dimitar gave us the quality, Rodallega the pace.

Rodallega was very eager and motivated to play.

I thought he would score.

He is Wigan's top scorer in the Premier League and he showed respect to the fans by not celebrating and they showed respect to him."

Berbatov's chipped pass for Rodallega's goal will not be bettered in the upcoming Ryder Cup.

Gomez thought he had levelled when he caught Beausejour's cross but it smacked against the crossbar.

Kone then showed both sides of his game when put through by Maloney. He outpaced the Fulham back-line but took a heavy touch that allowed Mark Schwarzer to save.

Boselli then missed an even better chance when keeper Schwarzer parried James McCarthy's shot and he prodded the rebound wide from six yards.

Kone did net a consolation but Martinez said: 'Those two missed chances were as clear as you get.'
