Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup said he felt a mixture of joy and relief after watching his side win their first game in six.
Pablo Hernandez and Miguel Michu both netted within a few minutes to put the Swans 2-0 in front, but Wigan got a goal back and pushed for an equaliser.
After a nervy final 20 minutes, Laudrup's side held on for a much needed win that puts them into 10th place in the Premier League table.
'You can say there is a mixture of joy and relief, we knew today was very important for us and I think if you see the game the players played with a lot of confidence and patience.
'But you know when you really want something, in this case a win, you cannot think you can do it in 10 minutes. At this level it takes 90 or 94 minutes and that is what happened.
'We knew both teams would want the ball as they are both good in possession and I think in the first half we had a little more possession and felt comfortable.
'But from the first minute of the second half we dominated completely, we did not create loads of chances but we got closer and closer and suddenly it was there.
'There was one goal and then we got the second and at that point everyone was thinking when would the third come to seal the win.
'But it sometimes happens in football; they got a goal back and the game changed completely and we had to suffer for the last 20 minutes.
'They had a goal disallowed which was very, very tight but to come back after some games without winning it would be too easy to win without suffering.'
The Swans now face a tough trip to champions Manchester City next Saturday (5.30pm).
