Fulham's Andy Johnson propelled the Cottagers to a 2-0 win over Wigan at Craven Cottage last night.
With the Premier League scheduling a full slate of matches in mid-week this week, and Fulham facing four lower, lower table teams in the next three matches, Fulham have the opportunity to put some distance between themselves and the relegation zone in the coming weeks.
Johnson's two goals, early in each half, gave Fulham the full three points against Wigan, who were sitting 15th on the table coming into the match, with Fulham sitting 17th. Johnson made up for his howler against Portsmouth on Sunday, which could have given Fulham a win at Fratton Park. Fulham leapfrogged Wigan to claim 14th on the table with the away match at #12 Everton up on the weekend. Everton won last night as well, 1-0 over Blackburn.
