Marvin Emnes admitted that it felt good to score as his stunning strike delivered another vital three points in Rovers' quest to rise up the table.
The on-loan striker marked his first goal since September in emphatic fashion, taking down a ball upfield from keeper Jason Steele with an outstretched boot before advancing on the Wigan defence and lashing home.
Emnes was pleased to be back on the scoresheet, but insisted that the victory was the most important aspect as the win sees Rovers move out of the relegation places.
"It felt so good," the matchwinner told Radio Rovers. "Especially after not scoring for a while.
"So to score again I'm happy, but to get the three points is even better.
"The manager had always told us not to drop back too far, just stay in between so we can counter if we win it and that is what I did.
"Then when Steeley got the ball there was just one thing on my mind. He kicked it long and I took a nice touch, it was beautiful! After that I was looking for one of the players to link up, but there was no-one there.
"So I took another touch inside and went for the bottom corner.
"The points are what we need, so to win games like this, sometimes you have to score goals like that.
"It is important to keep going, there are more games coming, if we can keep getting points, even if we don't play well, if we get the three points nobody is going to complain.
"At this time all we need are points, points, points, it doesn't matter how."
