    Blackpool slipped into the bottom three of the Premier League for the first time this season after losing a crucial match against fellow strugglers Wigan.

    The Latics could not have asked for a better start than Rodallega's third-minute goal and Roberto Martinez's team never really looked back. The striker showed excellent composure to slot home from a tight angle.

    The goal unsettled a Blackpool side that had not kept a clean sheet since late December.

    The match seemed to be meandering towards the break when Diame dispossessed Charlie Adam before slipping in N'Zogbia, who ran aggressively at the home defence before slotting home from a tight angle.

    Campbell slotted home a low Matt Phillips cross at the near post with seven minutes remaining and Al Absi then saved a low strike from Phillips as the home team finished strongly.

    Wigan manager Roberto Martinez:

    "The players have been showing a great level in the last few games without getting the wins. I'm extremely proud of them and it's a very important step forward.

    "But it was great to see two composed finishes from Charles N'Zogbia and Hugo Rodallega. For me this is a very significant victory."
