Deeney's double desimates Latics

Troy Deeney's double condemned Wigan to a 7th game without a win as the Latics continue to lurk in the bottom three.

The striker opened the scoring 20 minutes with a low finish but Chris McCann's headed equaliser brought the game square on the stroke of half-time.

Ben Watson's header came close to putting Wigan ahead but Deeney went one better and nodded in a late winner.

Well, it's another week without a win and it was the same story for Wigan and Malky Mackay. A lot of hard work and effort but no reward. Wigan's lack of urgency and confidence on the ball evidently showed in the early stages as passes were misplaced, players wanted to much time on the ball and Watford controlled large parts of the opening minutes.

Scott Carson was called into action early on following Watford's early domination as Gianni Munari and Daniel Tozser tested the former England keeper early on.

The Hornets' early pressure finally paid diligence midway inside the first half as Ikechi Anya nodded on a teasing ball to Deeney on the 6 yard box to finish low past Carson to give Watford a well deserved lead.

As the half wore on, Wigan grabbed the game by the scruff of the neck and took the game to Watford. The hosts look set to go into the break with a narrow lead but as they did at Sheffield Wednesday, Wigan equalised through Chris McCann. James McClean whipped in a dangerous in-swinging corner that was met by an unmarked towering Chris McCann who nodded home emphatically on the stroke of half time.

Wigan began the second half as they finished the first with large amounts of possession and a certain amount of purpose going forward. The goal on half time gave Malky Mackay's side a much needed boost of belief and it certainly showed in th second half as they were the better side for large periods of the game.

Ben Watson came close with a header that went narrowly wide before James McClean's effort forced former Spurs keeper Heurelho Gomes into a smart save.

However it was Watford who had the last laugh. Ikechi Anya played provider once more as his teasing cross from the right was met by an oncoming Troy Deeney who headed in his and Watford's second of the game 8 minutes from time.

The result keeps Slavisa Jokanovic's side propping up the top 6 as Malky Mackay and Wigan Athletic still find themselves in 23rd, 4 points from safety.

Wigan host fellow strugglers Rotheram United on Saturday in what has turned into a relegation 6 pointer. Will the Latics turn the season around on Saturday?  

 

Will it ever stop?

Wigan's woes continued as another game goes by without a win to make it 7 without a win for Malky Mackay and his decaying team as they were well beaten by top of the table Bournemouth.

The woodwork denied James McClean opening for the hosts before Callum Wilson raced away from a slack Wigan defence to put visitors ahead 8 minutes from the break.

Yann Kermogant doubled the Cherries' lead 4 minutes later when he caught Chris McCann on the ball. Wilson then killed the game off 12 minutes after the restart when he rounded Ali Al-Habsi.

Leon Clarke sealed his 'bittersweet' debut with a goal but it proved to me nothing more than a consolation goal.

Wigan started the game lively matching the league leaders stride for stride when James McClean lined up an in-swinging free kick wide right that smacked off the crossbar with Artur Boruc well beaten. What came next was a game changing decision. (Or should I say lack of decision).

A Simon Francis long ball was flicked on by Yann Kermogant to Callum Wilson who raced away from the Wigan back line to finish past Ali Al-Habsi. However videos show that from Kermogant's flick on, Wilson was offside by a significant margin. A margin so significant it leaves me among many people wondering how the linesman didn't spot it. 

In what proved to be a pivotal point in the game, the tie turned on it's head as Bournemouth quickly capitalised to make it 2-0. Chris McCann was caught by Yann Kermogant trying to play his way out of trouble on the edge of his own area where then the former Charlton man then unleashed a fierce drive into Al Habsi's bottom corner signalling many to go for their half-time Bovril. 

Just 12 minutes after the restart Bournemouth had the points sealed through the ever dangerous Callum Wilson once more. The former Coventry man's clever turn allowed him to get away from Liam Ridgewell where he then held up Leon Barnett and round Ali Al Habsi for his second and Bournemouth's third of the afternoon. 

Wigan pulled one back minutes later when debutant Leon Clarke who previously had 3 goals in 30 appearances for parent club Wolves nodded in James McClean's cross from 4 yards to give Mackay's side a glimmer of hope with a third of the game remaining.

Wigan then followed with huge amounts of pressure on the Bournemouth goal and other new boy Billy McKay nearly halved the deficit. The hugely impressive Sheyi Ojo played Don Cowie in behind the full back where the former Cardiff man fizzed a delightful to the front post which was met by an onrushing McKay who was desperately unlucky not to find the back of the net. Liam Ridgewell forced Boruc to tip his header over the bar, despite the late pressure Wigan couldn't find any real way back into the game.

Fabulous pic I’d love to see that kit recreated sometime soon, with an xxl fitting for normal people. How was a photographer allowed so close to the pitch? His flares are nearly in the six yard box!
