Back to football

Following the off-field drama this week, it's back to business this evening as we go in search of our first win at Wigan.

The Latics were in action on Tuesday managing a 1-0 win at Reading so will be semi-confident about winning their first home match since August. Guy Luzon will want to demonstrate that our siege-breaking win wasn't down to self-preservation and that that it was more to do with him getting his ideas across to the players as indicated by Johnnie Jackson at Tuesday's VIP Q & A.

A second successive victory would haul us up the table and into a heady 12th temporarily. The Bookies don't fancy us much and are offering 3-1 against and almost as much on the draw. 

Roland funded the loan arrival of Chris Eagles this week. Eagles turned us down a couple of years back in favour of Bolton and at 30 he is looking to eke out his career to the highest bidder. My guess is he will be gone come May but let's hope he weighs in with some assists and maybe a goal or two to help the Championship cause.

This evenings game is the first of three away trips to the bottom three and we must be looking to get more points than we concede from those games given the nature of the damage losing any of them will do...
