WIGAN, England (AP) — Hugo Rodallega scored his first goal for Fulham against his former side Wigan at the DW Stadium as the visitors held on for a 2-1 victory in the Premier League on Saturday.

The Colombia international, who joined Fulham in the offseason, scored in the 31st minute when he headed into the goal from close range.

Winger Damien Duff doubled the advantage in the 68th when he shot into the top left corner from just inside the area.

Wigan manager Roberto Martinez threw on substitutes Callum McManaman and Ryo Miyaichi for the last 15 minutes in a late attempt to salvage the game and despite an injury-time strike by Arouna Kone, Fulham held on for the win.

Fulham has nine points from five games and into fourth place in the league.
