Championship Summary: Wigan Crashes Hull 8-0 While Fulham Holds West Brom | Soccer


Wigan claimed their biggest league victory in history as they reacted to their impending 12 point penalty dramatically with an 8-0 rout from their relegation rivals to the championship shell. The Latics scored seven goals in an extraordinary first half as they secured a victory out of the bottom three due to the difference in goals against Hull – at least until the last matches have been played – once the penalty for falling into administration has been applied.Wigan’s victory surpassed his previous best league triumph, a 7-0 victory at Oxford in 2017, while it was also Hull’s worst result against the Wolves in 1911.

Kal Naismith put himself in the lead after a minute, then Kieffer Moore and Kieran Dowell struck twice each and Jamal Lowe and Joe Williams also scored before the interval. Dowell completed his hat trick with an incredible effort after the break before the hosts slackened, while the work of Hull boss Grant McCann was seriously threatened after the Tigers’ fourth straight loss.
