Wigan moved off the bottom of the Championship table as Will Grigg’s late goal gave them victory over Wolves.

The striker latched onto a long ball with two minutes remaining and rounded Wolves goalkeeper Carl Ikeme.

Ex-Wolves striker Adam Le Fondre had put Wigan ahead early on, turning in Max Power’s cross from close range.

Prince Oniangue equalised for the visitors before the break with a low finish from 18 yards, before substitute Grigg’s cool finish won it for Wigan.
