Marc Antoine Fortune: New boy scored for Wigan

Second-half goals from James McCarthy and Marc-Antoine Fortune were enough to get the Coyle era off to winning start as they held on after Ethan Finley got the hosts back into it.

In the heat of the Mid-West, Coyle was able to field six of his seven new signings with only Thomas Rogne missing out through injury.

"The result was not the priority but it is still very nice to be able to come away with a win after just 10 days of pre-season work," the boss told Wigan's official site.

"The players did exactly as they were instructed and showed professionalism, but also a real touch of quality for the goals. Now we need to build on that as we move towards August 3."

Their tour continues with a clash against Dayton Dutch Lions on Tuesday.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
