Malian forward Bakary Sako saved the day for Wolverhampton Wanderers with a second-half equaliser against Wigan Athletic.

Wolves came from behind to pick up a point at home against Championship strugglers Wigan.

Uwe Rosler’s side headed into the game on a dreadful run of form, having not won in their previous five. They started well against high-flying Wolves and found themselves 2-1 up at the hour mark, following goals from James Perch and Marc-Antoine Fortune.

The Old Gold had opened the scoring through Dave Edwards.

Kenny Jackett’s side may have developed some defensive frailties in recent times—as was demonstrated during the first-half—but they remain one of the division’s most menacing and cohesive sides.

The wins have dropped off and they secured only one point in their last two games ahead of this fixture.

Bakary Sako ensured it wasn’t to be one point in three matches, sealing a point for the home side with a 64th-minute equaliser during a goal-mouth scramble.

Nouha Dicko was a lively presence for the home side, but Nigerian keeper Carl Ikeme had a disappointing showing in goal.
