Wolves suffered a painful defeat in the 89th minute in the hands of Wigan who ended the game with a 2-1 victory.
A sucker punch from Will Grigg ensured Wigan rise above the relegation zone. Boss Gary Caldwell left Grigg on the bench, opting to start Adam Le Fondre. It turned out a brilliant move as Le Fondre scored from a Max Power cross.
Wolves remained resolute, and it paid off when they got the equalizer through Prince Oniangue. Neither side seemed capable of adding another. Grigg came into the game for the final thirty minutes and caused an upset, helping Wigan get their first win after eight matches. The Northern Ireland international positioned himself well before smashing home the goal from ten yards after rounding up the goalkeeper.
From the beginning of the game, Wigan seemed determined to get a point. They took the lead only after six minutes. Le Fondre, on loan from Cardiff, scored the first chance he got. Wolves tried getting an instant equalizer but goalkeeper Adam Bogdan thwarted their efforts. Helder Costa came through the left and hit and powerful shot. Bogdan was there to sent the goal-bound effort over the bar.
Dan Burn and Stephen Warnock combined well to stop attempts from Costa and Joao Teixeira. Danny Batth found a way through but his weak shot was disappointing. Wolves got their equalizer about ten minutes before the half time. Wolves tried getting the winner after the break through a Batth header, but Warnock was there to clear.
Wigan kept pushing and were happy when Grigg’s effort scored. Wolves would be disappointed with the loss, having only returned to winning ways in their last game against Brentford. They lost games to Newcastle in the EFL third round and the English championship. They lost to Barnsley and played a draw with Burton in recent games.
