Joe Dodoo on target as Wigan survive League One relegation

Ghanaian winger Joe Dodoo was on target for Wigan Athletic as they survived relegation in the English League.

The 25-year-old scored the consolation for Wigan in their 3-1 defeat to Hull City to confirm their stay in the league after a tumultuous campaign.

Dodoo joined the Latics in the winter transfer window and proved crucial in their staying up, scoring five goals and creating three in 19 matches.

Keane Lewis-Potter had given hosts Hull City a 17-minute lead before the Ghanaian attacker responded two minutes later to level the scoreline.

But Wigan conceded almost immediately after George Honeyman shot the Tigers into the lead.

Hull City then extended their lead halfway through the second half from a Magennis header.

With a game left, Wigan are four points adrift of the drop.

Joe Dodoo's contract with the Latics expires in the summer.
