Wigan Athletic manager Paul Cook is optimistic of the club’s chances of avoiding relegation from the Championship despite their poor form over the past seven games. The Latics are winless since the backend of October and they have recently dropped into the relegation places after a 3-1 home defeat at the hands of Reading.
Speaking in a press conference, Cook acknowledged that the Latics find themselves in a tough space but he has the belief that the club can stay away from the relegation places again, he told: “We’ve got to knuckle down and keep going. We’ve got central midfielders out at the minute, we’ve got other players who affect games out at the minute. We’re in a tough position, but we got out of it quite comfortably last year. And I believe we’ll get out of it quite comfortably again. Certainly November and December is not the kind of time you can be saying what may or may not happen further down the line.”
