And here's a match report of the game:

After 15 games without a win, the Bulls have now beaten two promotion candidates in seven days.

Adrian Foster opened the scoring in the 23rd minute, beating Wigan keeper Lee Butler with a sharp shot from 12 yards for his 10th of the season.

Wigan levelled eight minutes later when Hereford conceded a free kick on the left.

Spaniard Roberto Martinez cleverly lifted a high ball over the defence for Paul Rogers to head past Trevor Wood.

Two minutes before the interval Hereford restored their lead when they were presented with a gift by full back Charlie Bishop.

Bishop's clearance went straight to Carl Beeston who curled a shot past Butler.

Hereford took up the running again in the second period and were rewarded with their third in the 48th minute.

Rogers up-ended Adrian Foster midway in the Wigan half and from the free kick, full back Murray Fishlock beat Butler with a blistering shot.

Wigan sub Kevin Sharp missed a sitter when he shot wide from four yards.
