A glimmer of hope, in a far from memorable season and what turned out to be our first relegation since arriving in the EFL in 1978, saw Winston White net twice against Hull City in a 2-0 victory, Latics' final win of the 1992-93 campaign.

Hull City 0 Wigan Athletic 5 - Saturday 30 August 2008
After back-to-back defeats in our opening two matches against West Ham United and Chelsea, Latics were due a much needed boost, and having won 4-0 four days before in the League Cup against Notts County, Hull City were right in the firing line for Steve Bruce's men.
Having scored on the opening day of the season against the Hammers, Egyptian loanee Amr Zaki was red hot in front of goal with a double, whilst Antonio Valencia and Emile Heskey also hit the target.
It was Kevin Kilbane who got the ball rolling in the 5-0 triumph, his in-swinging corner forcing Sam Ricketts to slice the ball into his own net just five minutes into the game. Seven minutes later Latics' speed on the counter attack became apparent as Valencia shot through the middle to finish coolly past Boaz Myhill.
Zaki got his first of two shortly after the hour mark, before Heskey proved too powerful for the Hull back line and rifled his effort in for 4-0.
Latics' 'Pharaoh' rounding off the scoring with nine minutes remaining, crashing a thunderous effort in off the underside of the cross bar!

Wigan Athletic 1 Hull City 0 - Sunday 22 March 2009
Latics left it late to complete a seasonal double over the Tigers, but Ben Watson was swift to turn home the winner with his low effort to beat Matt Duke six minutes from full time.
The midfielder's strike was his second in as many matches for Latics, having scored in a 2-1 win against Sunderland eight days earlier.
It was to be Latics' penultimate victory of the season, as Steve Bruce's men lost six and drew one of their next seven matches, before seeing out the campaign with a 1-0 win at home to Portsmouth.
