Wigan, England:

Argentine striker Franco Di Santo scored either side of halftime to earn Wigan a 2-0 win over promoted Queens Park Rangers and maintain his team's unbeaten record in the Premier League this season.

The former Chelsea forward drilled a finish into the top corner in the 41st minute for the opening goal and wrapped up victory with a deflected shot from just outside the penalty box in the 66th.

Wigan only survived relegation on the final day of last season but the northwest club has made a solid start to the new campaign, including draws in its first two games.

QPR, which signed Joey Barton too late Friday to field the midfielder at the DW Stadium, hit the woodwork three times - twice through Morocco winger Adel Taarabt.
