Wigan hero Conor Sammon was delighted to open his Latics account against West Ham on Sunday.
The striker, who arrived at the DW Stadium from Kilmarnock in January, came off the bench to grab the equaliser before Charles N'Zogbia added the winner and his second of the clash to seal a 3-2 triumph.
The result keeps the second-bottom Latics' Premier League survival hopes alive, and Sammon was thrilled to have played a role in it on his sixth appearance for the club.
"I have always got a fantastic reception off the fans from when I first signed," Sammon told the club's official website.
"It was very pleasing to get my first goal and it repays the fans for some of the support they have given me since I joined.
"Every striker misses chances and you come close at times, but you always remain focused on making the right runs and getting yourself into the right areas.
"Ben Watson has picked me out with a brilliant ball and put me right in on goal in the box. I've decided to cut back on my right foot and I've slotted it into the corner.
"When you get an opportunity to come on, you want to make an impact and affect the result and thankfully that is what has happened for me."
