London:

Steed Malbranque scored to give Fulham a 1-0 win over Wigan on Monday. With this win, it has moved up two places to 14th in the English Premier League. Wigan dominated the match but Malbranque scored against the run of play in first-half injury time at Fulham's Craven Cottage stadium. Jason Roberts, Gary Teale and Lee McCulloch failed to finish chances for the Lactics, who remained in ninth place with 51 points - nine points more than Fulham. Fulham manager Chris Coleman wasn't concerned if his side was lucky to win. "If we were I couldn't give a monkey's,'' he said. "We're at the point of the season where we need points. We were booed off at halftime and rightly so. "We didn't deserve to be 1-0 up, we deserved to be 2-0 down but that's how football works.'' Wigan manager Paul Jewell attributed the loss to bad luck and poor finishing. (AP)
