Bloody Saturday

Wigan 1 - 0 West Ham


Hugo Rodallega earned Wigan their first League win since the opening day of the season in a scrappy game with West Ham.
Apart from Chris Kirkland struggling to deal with back passes and Robert Green saving two long-range shots, neither keeper was busy in a tepid first half. 
Rodallega poked home from close range on 55 minutes after Green had blocked Jason Koumas's shot. 
West Ham substitute Alessandro Diamanti livened things up and hit the post but Wigan deserved the win.
Wigan manager Roberto Martinez:
"The way the players adapted to what was needed was exceptional, we had to stop West Ham playing their football which was a big test, so a clean sheet and three points is what we deserved."
West Ham manager Gianfranco Zola:
"In the first half I thought we controlled the game well and we looked better than them. 
"The goal was sloppy, we didn't start the second half in the same frame of mind that we did the first - that's something we need to work on."


QPR 1 - 1 Peterborough

Peterborough are still waiting for their first win of the new season after Wayne Routledge's equaliser cancelled out Aaron Mclean's opener.
Mclean headed in Tommy Williams's cross and only Ben Watson's challenge stopped Lee Frecklington making it 2-0. 
Adel Taarabt and Jay Simpson set up Routledge to tap in before the break. 
Simpson wasted a great chance to win it on 85 minutes and in injury time only an offside flag denied Peterborough's Craig Mackail-Smith a winner.
QPR boss Jim Magilton:
"Any successful campaign is built around your home form. 
"Our play at times is good but that's not enough, especially at home where expectation levels rise. 
"You've got to be able to handle that and maybe some can't." 
Peterborough manager Darren Ferguson:
"I thought we deserved three points. 
"You always need a bit of luck and we are just not getting it at the moment. 
"But there is no time to feel sorry for ourselves. As long as we keep putting in performances like that then we will get the wins."
