Posted on October 10, 2019 in Uncategorized

The match started with Wigan starting brightly with the attack combining early for an attempt on goal by the home team.

Gavin Massey located Windass with a good pass and he made an attempt that was well saved by Kieffer Moore.  Windass continued to have a good opening half finding space to test Camp into making a sharp save.

Birmingham settled into the game after the early storm and the match became stale with neither side having much joy in creating chances. Dan Crowley had the first shot for the away team who struggled with their shooting all night.

Posted on September 28, 2019 in Uncategorized

Wigan Athletic winger Nathan Bryne has said that the Latics have nothing to be worried about despite a slow beginning to the Championship campaign. Paul Cook’s side started the season with a stunning triumph over Cardiff City but they have since succumbed to four league defeats on the bounce.

As such, there are already question marks whether they can avoid the dreaded drop but Bryne has insisted that the performances should get better, once the new players are able to adjust to the club’s style of play, he told: “It is going to take some time for us all to get used to each other’s play, with so many new players.

Paul Cook delighted with Wigan’s survival in the Championship

Posted on June 11, 2019 in Uncategorized

Wigan Athletic manager Paul Cook has expressed his delight after the club managed to beat the Championship drop with two games to spare. The Latics have found themselves in a relegation heap in the past few months but they have managed to survive the threat with back-to-back triumphs over Leeds United and Preston North End.

Speaking after the win over Preston, Cook said: “We’re delighted. When you start off a season like we did, so strong and playing so well, we all thought staying up might be a formality. But then you get into the winter, injuries kick in to key players, and it’s a really tough time for the club. In the lowest moments we all thought about possibly getting relegated. But football is a long, long season, and you have to stay the pace. League tables don’t tell lies, everyone finishes where they deserve to finish, and we’re delighted to be staying up.”
