West Ham 2-1 Wigan Athletic Highlights
England boss Fabio Capello saw Dean Ashton score twice to help West Ham make a winning start to the season.
Ashton collected Julien Faubert’s early cross and turned past Paul Scharner before firing into the roof of the net.
The striker then scored from close range after Wigan failed to clear Faubert’s left-wing corner.
Eygpt striker Amr Zaki pulled a goal back with a stunning left-foot volley on his Wigan debut but also missed three golden opportunities to equalise.
West Ham boss Alan Curbishley began the day as the bookmakers’ favourite to be the first Premier League manager sacked this season and had nine first-team players already sidelined through injury.
