Thank you all for joining me and enjoy coverage of Fulham v Tottenham, which will be underway soon. Bye for now.
Wolves meanwhile leap four places to 13th and talk of McCarthy's job being in doubt will end for a month or two you'd hope.
Wigan face Blackburn at home next and that has to go down as a 'must win', even at this early stage of the season.
Full time and Wolves deserved their win, simply because they were superior to Wigan in the final third. The visitors had plenty of the ball but lacked cutting edge.
To rather sum up Wigan's day the corner is long and then Figueroa fouls Henry when he didn't need to.
Moses goes on the rampage again but his cross is cut out by Ward. Boyce then sees his cross deflected behind for a corner.
Di Santo does well to win the ball for Wigan but Wolves have all 11 men behind the ball and Wigan are out of ideas. Hennessy clears long towards Jarvis, who loses out to Gohouri.
Al Habsi is the Barclays Premier League Man of the Match, to underline the fine saves he's made. As it happens they haven't had a direct impact on the score as goals have quickly followed most of them!
Corner for Wolves as the game enters its 90th minute. Unsurprisingly the home side aren't tempted to throw men forward and Wigan can clear comfortably.
Berra again does well to prevent Di Santo getting a shot away. It's all Wigan, but they've shown nothing in front of goal to suggest they're about to score twice.
Boyce's sliced clearance allows Jarvis to go down the left but he fouls the Wigan right back in the process. Head tennis ensues before Hunt's long ball finds its way to Al Habsi.
Sammon shows another touch of class, firing wide after a nice turn 20 yards out. Hennessy had it covered, but his impact should offer something positive for Roberto Martinez.
Hennessy gets a hand to the cross and the threat is dealt with fully when Berra gets his head to a long ball.
Replays show that Alcaraz spat at Berra in the middle of that incident, which is truly revolting behaviour. Let's hope he's punished retrospectively.
Another good save from Hennessy after a Wigan header at the back post threatens to sneak in the corner. Delivery is again lacking in quality and players come together, with Stearman furious at Alcaraz for going down easily under a challenge from Berra.
Crusat's delivery is poor and Wolves clear. Wigan attack again through Diame and then Crusat, whose cross is cleverly directed goalwards by Sammon. It's a corner as Hennessy tips over.
Stearman easily intercepts a through ball but O'Hara tries to do everything on his own and fails, so Wigan are back on the ball. Just over 10 minutes plus injury time left at Molineux.
Easy interception for Johnson, who along with Berra has done well today at the heart of the Wolves' defence although how much that has to do with Wigan's final ball delivery is open to debate.
We had a fair few 3-1 predictions before the game didn't we? Fine efforts regardless. Wigan again in command here but they lack the killer instinct that Wolves have shown.
Nice play from Wigan who've found their stride again. Moses' cross is too deep though and Hennessy collects.
Diame does well to beat O'Hara to the ball and Hennessy does well to parry Crusat's shot. Di Santo then gives away a free kick with a foul on Henry.
Wolves are on top and in search of their fourth, but the best player on the pitch today has probably been Al Habsi!
Berra is among those up for the free kick and he meets a perfect cross with a powerful header. Al Habsi makes a world class save, by no means his first of the game, and it's a corner.
Wolves playing with freedom now and O'Hara wins a free kick after Alcaraz mistimes his challenge. He has to be treading on thin ice, the Wigan skipper.
Wigan are shaken now and look to have lost hope for the time being. Edwards is offside as he bids to score his second and Wolves' fourth.
GOAL Ward! Despite being under pressure for large chunks of the game, Wolves have a two-goal lead. Al Habsi makes another good save from O'Hara but it falls to Ward, whose deflected shot finds the corner.
Respite for Wolves in the shape of a free kick which O'Hara whips in to a dangerous area. Gohouri clears with Wolves players stacking up behind him.
Jones' cross is good but Wolves clear. He then returns with another but Berra does well to head clear. It's all Wigan at the moment.
Wolves have every man behind the ball at the moment as Wigan continue to come forward. Di Santo wins a free kick 40 yards out and then a corner when his cross is deflected behind.
Di Santo beats Ward but his low cross is just behind Rodallega. Wigan always look a threat down the right.
Di Santo is dispossessed on halfway but Watson clears up after him and Wigan break. Stearman makes a superb tackle as Rodallega tries to work space for a shot.
Nice work from Watson but his ball to Di Santo isn't perfect and Berra, who is playing as well as I've seen him, can intercept.
Rodallega almost gets on the end of a Figueroa through-ball but Hennessy and Berra manage to get rid between them.
Wigan are unlucky to be behind, but they just can't stop leaking goals at present so however threatening they look going forward it's always going to be hard to win games. Moses remains a big danger but his cross is too close to Hennessy.
Moses finds space as Wigan try to respond. His second cross goes to Rodallega, who is adamant his header back is handled by Hunt. No penalty and the right decision too.
GOAL Edwards! Al Habsi makes two superb saves but can do no more when Edwards strikes from close range. It was a fine Henry run that created the trouble but you feel for the Wigan keeper.
Doyle works space for a cross on the left but nobody can get on the end of it. Henry recovers the ball but his cross is long and Boyce clears.
Gohouri's long ball goes all the way through to Hennessy, whose clearance towards Doyle is dealt with by the Wigan defence.
Diame does really well to pressure Henry into the corner but then foolishly pushes him over when the Wolves man was out of options. Hennessy clears.
Wigan are on top but much like the start of the game, the opening stages of the second half have been largely scrappy.
Jarvis has been superb so far - he looks determined to make up for being left out of the starting XI and wins the ball from Boyce.
Wigan break with pace and Di Santo's deflected effort is just wide. The referee and linesman both misses what was admittedly a minor deflection so it's a goal kick.
Gohouri takes a chance on the edge of his own box but O'Hara can't quite take advantage. Jarvis continues his bright start by tackling Moses and Wolves break with Stearman, who should do better but loses out to Figueroa.
Hennessy comes a long way out of his area to clear a harmless long ball but does so well, only for Wigan to get back in possession. Moses' attempt from range is ambitious and well wide.
We're underway in the second half and Jarvis is quickly involved, releasing O'Hara whose cross is too deep. Lively start from the sub though.
I'm with you Joanna. Managers have to work very hard for praise but tend to be leapt on very quickly when things aren't going perfectly.
Joanna says: "I'm a Wolves fan and I think those so called fans who are calling for Super Mick to go really need to take a long hard look. With Mick we were promoted as champions and it might be by the skin of our teeth but we keep staying up. If you bring in another manager now, it's going to be Glen Hoddle again, we will be run into ground and have nothing left!"
Surely you have to be one of the best 17 to survive though? And one of the things I like about Martinez is that he tries to get them playing football. Each to their own anyway, but the grass isn't always greener.
Jay says: "I really wish we was one of the best top 20 teams in England but if that was the case we wouldn't keep scraping through every year we would do it with ease."
I think that's a tad harsh myself, but there we go. Wigan are by definition one of the 20 best teams in England, which is no cause for embarrassment in my book. They've also played well here and it's possible to argue they should be leading - had Rodallega taken his chance everything changes.
Jay says: "I am a die hard Latics fan but I think it's time Bob should go now and take some of the players with him, all these people have done is embarass our town and I am ashamed to be a Wiganer we deserve to be level but thats because of a penalty and not skillfull football. I also agree with some people, we would be better suited in the championship, at least we would have a better chance of winning a game."
Regretably I can't take any credit - I've gone with O'Hara to score last! He was always going to score first with that in mind, and it was never going to be 1-0. Still, he can get another.
Sky Bet's Kristian Walsh expands on that info for us: "I hope people followed our instincts, a nice 10/1 winner to start the day. Wolves are now 5/4 to go on and pick up the win, while Wigan are available at 3/1. The draw is 6/4. If you're feeling a love of O'Hara love right now, he's 8/1 to score the next goal."
Sky Bet offer 5/4 about Wolves, 6/4 the draw and 3/1 Wigan. If I was betting now I'd have a dabble on the visitors, who look threatening whenever they attack.
A poor end to the first 45 minutes as Guedioura's diagonal ball is a long way from any Wolves player. Polite applause greets the half-time whistle.
Wolves fail to deal with a clipped ball in but Alcaraz is deemed to have handled when trying to control it. Hennessy goes long and O'Hara is almost able to take advantage when Al Habsi spills Hunt's shot, but the Wigan keeper recovers in time.
Rodallega wins his side a throw down the left, from which Moses does well to beat Guedioura and win a corner. Two minutes will be added on.
O'Hara's delivery is poor but he gets a second chance, only to once again fail to find a Wolves player. Wigan can clear with ease.
Wigan deserve to be level in a game that has lacked final-third quality except for the opening goal. We did promise there'd be goalmouth action and they've not let us down in that respect. Free kick to Wolves deep inside the Wigan half.
GOAL Watson! The Wigan midfielder sees his penalty saved but unfortunately for Hennessy it goes straight back to Watson, who is relieved to tap in. Replays show that it was a penalty - soft, yes, but a foul anywhere else on the pitch and therefore also a foul in the box.
Foul on Moses and Wigan go forward with Boyce, who goes down under a challenge from Hunt and it's a penalty to Wigan.
Guedioura's determination to make up for his own mistake costs his side as he fouls Figueroa when Wolves looked to work space in the Wigan box.
Nice spell of pressure from Wigan and they're unlucky not to win a free kick as Hunt appears to use his arm to block a cross.
Gohouri bombs forward and manages to find Boyce, whose cross towards Rodallega is headed clear from Johnson before Berra also does well to prevent another centre.
Henry loses out to Watson but does well to recover possession and Wolves have a throw midway inside the Wigan half.
Throw for Wigan, who haven't refound their stride since going behind. Boyle eventually crosses but Hennessy punches clear before collecting a return cross from Di Santo.
Di Santo does well to win a header but his flick can't find Rodallega. Guedioura tries to find Hunt but he's judged to be offside - it was very tight.
Wigan miss out on the chance to cross from the left and Wolves are back in possession, content for now to slow the pace of play.
Roger Johnson gets what looks like a final warning from Lee Probert after a foul that gives Wigan a free kick on halfway.
The home fans advertise the fickle nature of this sport by singing at full voice now that their side are ahead. It should've been different and Rodallega knows it.
GOAL O'Hara! Rodallega should put Wigan ahead after a perfect ball from Di Santo and a great first touch. He's eight yards out, Hennessy on-rushing, but prods it wide. Wolves break and Doyle squares to O'Hara, who finishes well from 10 yards out.
The home fans don't sound too happy but they're used to lacklustre first half performances. Rodallega is caught offside as he attempts to latch on to Figueroa's ball.
Wolves look to have Wigan in trouble but O'Hara's attempted cross is charged down and the visitors counter. Berra makes a superb tackle as Di Santo lines up a shot.
Alcaraz has gone into the book for a foul that took place as Wolves countered a couple of minutes ago, the referee having played advantage at the time.
Ward almost keeps in a good through ball but it's a Wigan goal kick, which is quickly worked up to Rodallega. His touch is heavy and Johnson clears.
Wigan win a throw down the right but Boyce can't beat Ward and Wolves take advantage by breaking down the left. Figueroa once again does well to mop up.
Watson gives it away 30 yards from his own goal but Diame mops up and Wigan break with Di Santo. He goes inside to Moses, who opts to shoot from 30 yards instead of look for Rodallega in space. It's charged down and Wolves clear.
Wigan are on top right now and look dangerous when they go forward, they've just lacked that bit of quality in the final third.
Di Santo again finds space and for a moment Wigan have three on two. Rodallega receives it 18 yards out and in space too but his shot is tamely struck and straight at Hennessy.
That decision backfires as Henry dwells and loses out. Moses can run towards the Wolves box and eventually the ball falls for Di Santo, who is tackled by Stearman as he's about to pull the trigger from five yards out. The Wigan striker claims for a penalty but that was a fine tackle.
Figueroa's cross is claimed by Hennessy, who this time opts to go short instead of look to Doyle again.
Good covering from Alcaraz prevents O'Hara from putting in a cross. Wigan break with Moses, whose pace takes him into the Wolves box, but his cross is ahead of Di Santo and cleared for a throw.
Nice play down the left from Wolves ends in Figueroa clearing for a throw. Henry and O'Hara work it for Ward, whose cross is far too deep for Doyle and goes out for a Wigan throw.
Successive throws on the right allow Wolves to progress well inside the Wigan half. Doyle does well to find Hunt, whose left-footed cross is met by Edwards 10 yards out. There's no pace on the ball in nor the header and it goes harmlessly wide.
Doyle wins yet another header but his flick goes through to Al Habsi in the Wigan goal. The home side are just on top at the moment.
Alcaraz shows a bit of tenacity with a strong challenge on Guedioura, who isn't best pleased when his protestations fall on deaf ears.
Doyle once again shows how strong he is in the air but Figueroa is able to shepherd the ball out for a Wigan throw deep inside their own half.
Guedioura does well on the left before crossing but it's blocked by Alcaraz. Rodallega attempts to exchange passes with Di Santo but fails to do so - this is scrappy at the moment.
Jones has been very busy and he forces Stearman to clear quickly. His long ball towards Doyle finds the Irish striker offside, but Rodallega is offside too when Wigan send a return ball deep.
Gohouri finds Moses but he's quickly closed down and O'Hara sets a Wolves attack in motion. Rodallega gets in tight on Berra and it's a free kick for the hosts on halfway.
Diame shows great strength to make ground down the left before finding Jones in the box, but Wolves are quick to close and Stearman clears. Rodallega then looks to have spurned a great chance from 10 yards but he was offside.
Ward clears before Jones is found offside as Wigan attempt to get another cross in, and Hennessy clears.
Wonderful play from Moses on the right, beating two men with ease before his cross is turned behind for a corner to Wigan.
Replays of the Hunt one-on-one suggest that there was barely any contact and if he'd appealed for a penalty it wouldn't have looked good.
Free kick for Wolves midway inside the Wigan half. Jamie O'Hara takes and the delivery is good, but Johnson is just kept out by Diame and it's a goal kick.
Doyle flicks on to Hunt, who rounds Al Habsi but gets up when touched instead of appealing for a penalty. A corner is the result and Alcaraz has the look of a guilty man after appeals for handball from Roger Johnson. It did hit his arm but he was looking the other way - correct decision.
Rodallega clears and Wigan break with Moses. Wolves are quick to get men behind the ball and space in the central areas is limited to say the least.
Johnson goes long towards Doyle, who heads down to Edwards. His 20-yard effort is well struck and pushed wide for a corner.
Stearman concedes a throw in down the right but Diame can't keep the ball in play and Wolves build from the back.
We're underway and it's a scrappy start before Watson's attempted through ball goes out for a Wolves goal kick.
Perfectly observed by all and followed by rapturous applause. Now we're set for action and it'll be Wolves to kick off.
The teams are out on the pitch on what is a glorious day. We're going to observe a minute's silence to honour servicemen and women whose lives were lost serving their country.
Mick adds to his previous comment: "Oh, and by the way Ben, what on earth is going on with Wigan's formation? It's awful!! I dont think its Roberto Martinez's fault, I think it's the 'acting like' blue square premier defense!"
@Zex78 Tweets: "Hey Ben big shout to all the Latics fans who are travelling to Wolverhampton 2day into the ground, Mon the Latics!!"
I've had to narrow down Matt's well-constructed email due to space and time, but he says: "As much as most Wolves fans would like to moan about certain players inclusion in today's squad, and certain exclusion of our most technically gifted player (again) I'm not interested in anything but supporting the team because this is huge for Wolves. I know the same can be said about Wigan but if we don't win today we really are in a scrap and I fear Mick would be in last chance saloon after this weekend. I want to say Wolves will win 2-0, but my honest feeling is Wigan will go 1 up and we will scrape a draw...!"
Joe the Wolves fan is in touch via his HTC phone, which I'm hugely in favour of. He says: "What has Milijas got to do to get a start? He's our most creative midfielder. Not too impressed with our lineup today, Henry and Stearman are our weakest links, let's hope Wigan don't score first I've brought an extra pair of nails to the game."
While Max says: "Hey Ben, another Gunner here. I predict a draw today but an exciting one! 3-3 I reckon!"
John is after some divine intervention: "If that's a good team selection, then God help us!!!!!!!!!!!"
Sky Bet's Kristian Walsh reckons I might be on to a winner: "You'd be right to have a dabble at O'Hara, especially as we've price boosted him to 10/1 to score first. He looks to be playing just behind Doyle, who is 11/2 to net first. If you fancy both to find the net, Sky Bet offer 11/1 they do so this afternoon, while Hugo Rodallega represents Wigan's best chance of a goalscorer at 12/5 anytime."
Another 3-1 prediction, this time from Ashley: "Both teams are good going forward but both just need to find the back of the net, but today I think Wolves might just take it with 3-1 win (Doyle 2 plus Hunt) and Rodallega for Wigan"
Mark also thinks it'll be a home win: "2-0 Wolves. I had a Wigan season ticket last year, and I thought they were poor then with very little goal threat. However, this year with N'Zogbia gone, and a League One defence, I hold no hope for survival!"
Micky the Gunner says: "Hi Ben, Micky here, who is a Gooners fan but predicting a comfortable 3-1 win for Wolves, with a Johnson header, two from O'Hara and Moses with a 30 yard screamer!! See you later! Enjoy the game!"
Wolves have lost four of their last five Premier League games and have conceded at least two in every match they've been involved in since the start of September.
Wigan have won the last three meetings of these sides, including the last two at Molineux. However, it's almost three months since they last won any game and they've now lost their last nine.
Sky Bet offer 10/11 about a home win, 12/5 the draw and 16/5 Wigan. For what it's worth, I thought Jamie O'Hara to score last at 9/1 was more than tempting, i.e. I've had a dabble.
Alex Woodall is quick off the mark which we like to see and says: "Mick has done a good team selection because Jarvis was not up to standard last game and because it's at home I'm going 2-1 to Wolves"
