Fulham snapped its five-game winless streak on Saturday, and Clint Dempsey was the player to lift the club to victory.

Fulham defeated Wigan Athletic, 2-0, through two first-half goals from Dempsey. The U.S. international, who played all 90 minutes in the win, headed home a Carlos Salcido cross in the 30th minute before knocking another in with a one-time finish just before halftime.

The two goals bring Dempsey's total to four in the Premiership campaign.

Fellow American striker Eddie Johnson did not dress for the match.
