Wigan Athletic beat Tottenham Hostpur 1-0 at White Hart Lane to continue their climb away from the relegation zone in the Barclays Premier League. A toe-poke in the second-half from Ben Watson secured Roberto Martinez’s side the points.
A week after beating West Ham United this was Wigan's third league win of the season, and Tottenham's third defeat.
With three at the back and with a fast passing game Martinez's Wigan were dominating Spurs when they took the lead during a goalmouth scramble on 56 minutes as Watson poked the ball over Brad Friedel's goalline.
Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas reacted by taking off Jermaine Defoe and replacing him with Togolese striker Emmanuel Adebayor.
Spurs had started the match brightly with striker Clint Dempsey seeing his second-minute shot deflected wide, while a Jan Vertonghen volley also flew narrowly wide for the Londoners before Wigan settled.
With Moussa Dembele and Scott Parker out injured, Tottenham's midfield options were further weakened when Sandro limped off after 23 minutes.
Wigan had a great chance to open the scoring late in the first half when Arouna Kone played a one-two with Shaun Maloney only to see Friedel make a brilliant save from his flashing volley.
Some desperate late attacking from the home side kept Wigan's Ali Al-Habsi, solid all afternoon, busy in the Wigan goal, but the Latics held firm to earn three points.
