Fletcher maintains goalscoring record
SUNDERLAND picked up their first Premier League win of the season - Steven Fletcher once again on the scoresheet as the Black Cats saw off ten-man Wigan Athletic.
Fletcher scored in the 51st minute to hand Sunderland their first maximum of the campaign, after Jordi Gomez received his marching orders on 47 minutes for a foul on Danny Rose.
Sunderland's Simon Mignolet had denied Aroune Kone with a fine save in the first half, but once Wigan went down to ten men their threat receded.
SUNDERLAND (4-2-3-1): Mignolet; Gardner, O'Shea, Bramble, Rose; Larsson, Colback; Johnson (Vaughan 79), Sessegnon, McClean; Fletcher. Subs not used: Campbell, Wickham, Kilgallon, Meyler, Westwood, Saha.
WIGAN ATHLETIC (4-3-3): Al Habsi; Boyce, (McManaman 85) Ramis, Caldwell, Figueroa; McArthur (Miyaichi 85), McCarthy, Beausejour; Maloney (Di Santo, 61), Kone, Gomez. Subs not used: Jones, Watson, Pollitt, Boselli.
