Wigan Athletic got a late winner that earned them all three points in the game against Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Championship.
The loss was devastating for Wolves as they hoped to end their poor run. They have now lost three straight games in the Championship. They place 18th on the current standings.
Ahead of the clash, the stats were against them but they could have managed to keep it in their favour. According to records, Wolves have won just one of five games against Wigan at Molineux. They enjoyed more possession but could not convert their chances in front of goal.
Paul Lambert side could only threaten their visitors as they lacked that final finish that could have made all the difference. Bright Enobakhare made an attempt but it did not convert. They were punished late in the game from a set piece.
“I’m like everyone else, disappointed and angry with the way that we performed. We never did enough, that’s for sure; it wasn’t good enough. We were too passive, we never dominated the ball and were not aggressive enough with or without the ball,” Lambert said after the loss. (more…)
