On This Day: Parker nets long-range stunner in Wigan win


Taking a look back at a classic West Ham United moment on this day in history, in association with Basset & Gold....

Scott Parker scored a long-range stunner to fire the Hammers towards safety with a vital 3-2 win over Wigan Athletic on this day in 2010.

The Hammers were in need of the points when the Latics came to the Boleyn Ground, and Parker's strike settled a roller-coaster clash.

Wigan took an early lead, but goals from Ilan and Radoslav Kovac turned the game on its head. Hugo Rodallega levelled for Wigan, before Parker intervened.
