Wigan Athletic rounded off their pre-season campaign with a comfortable win over Scottish Premier League side St Mirren at the DW Stadium. Jason Koumas opened the scoring with a superbly taken free kick but the lead was somewhat short lived thanks to a defensive blunder from the normally reliable Emmerson Boyce allowing Craig Dargo to level. However second half goals from Hugo Rodallega and captain Mario Melchiot saw off the visitors.
