Big Preview: Wigan Athletic vs Southend United

13 October 2017

Wigan Athletic vs Southend United

Southend United will be looking to bounce back from a miserable afternoon against Doncaster Rovers last weekend but they face an arduous task as they travel to second-placed Wigan Athletic.

Prior to last Saturday, Blues were on a run of five games undefeated following four successive wins and they’ll need to be at their best if they’re to take anything from their visit to the DW Stadium.

Wigan sit just two points behind table-topping Shrewsbury going into this weekend and are unbeaten at home so far this season with five wins and one draw from their six league games.

The Latics are also the joint second highest scorers in the division with 22 goals which will make worrying reading for Brown as he travels to the DW with his defensive options depleted.

Anton Ferdinand will miss the trip to Lancashire as he serves the first of a two-game ban following his red card against Doncaster with Harry Kyprianou also out after he hobbled off with a thigh injury last weekend at the Keepmoat.

Blues will be able to call upon Jason Demetriou as he returns from international duty whilst John White is likely to be paired at the back with Michael Turner who is set to make a surprise return having missed the entire season so far with a hamstring problem.

Rob Kiernan continues to be missing and will travel to Sweden to see a specialist about his knee injury whilst fellow defender Ben Coker and midfielder Michael Kightly also remained sidelined.

Phil Brown on the teams response and Wigan

12 October 2017

Phil Brown, Southend United Manager; 

“We’ve got back to back games against two sides who are really in form, none more so than the one we face on Saturday.

“It’s a big challenge for us and one where we can put a marker down where this season is concerned and certainly put the Doncaster game behind us. It’s a good opportunity for people.

“Cooky has gone back home as it were from Portsmouth and his teams like to play the right kind of football.

“He’s got Peter Reid alongside him with vast experience. There’s lots of things to admire about them but we’ve got to go there and execute the gameplan and hopefully come away with the spoils."

Prices on the day increase by £2 for the adult and over 65's category only.
 
The advanced ticket prices are as follows:
 
Adults - £22.00
 
Over 65’s - £15.00

Match Report: Wigan 3-0 Southend

14 October 2017

Blues suffered a 3-0 defeat away at Wigan in what was a difficult game that saw Jermaine McGlashan sent off. 

Phil Brown made four changes from last week’s 4-1 defeat against Doncaster; as John White, Jermaine McGlashan, Theo Robinson and Dru Yearwood all started at the DW Stadium. 

Wigan came close early on as Nathan Byrne attempted a chip from the edge of the area, that saw Blues keeper Mark Oxley scrambling back towards his goal line, thankfully for Blues the ball deflected just wide of Oxley’s right-hand post. 

The home side then took the lead in the 8th minute due to a fortunate deflected strike by Michael Jacobs, following a weak headed clearance by Ryan Leonard, which Jacobs met at the edge of the box and struck a powerful effort first time which deflected off John White and wrong-footed Oxley and spun into the bottom right hand corner of the goal. 

Blues first chance of the game came through Nile Ranger just after the half hour mark, as some quick combination play between Dru Yearwood down the right-hand side with McGlashan saw the latter cross the ball into the penalty area, however, Ranger attempted an acrobatic effort from just inside the box which tamely rolled past Jamie Jones’ left hand post.

Shortly after Ranger’s effort, Nathan Byrne carved open Blues defence down the right-hand side, but fortunately for Blues, Mark Oxley was equal to Byrne’s near post effort as he saved the ball with his feet. 

Nile Ranger was in the thick of the action and came close to equalising on the stroke of half time, following a pin point cross from the right wing by Ryan Leonard, however, Ranger could only header the ball agonizingly over the bar. 

Wigan started the second half, as they did in the first, as they went close on a couple of occasions through Michael Jacobs, as his first effort came as a result from evading several Blues challenges, and his low drive was well saved by Oxley. Jacob’s then went close with another low drive, before an effort by Chey Dunkley was cleared off the line by Leonard, following a corner from the right-hand side. 

On the hour mark Jermaine McGlashan was shown a straight red card for a high tackle with his studs up on Callum Elder on the right wing just inside Blues halve. Despite Blues being down to 10 men they found themselves with more ball possession as Wigan looked to find the second goal on the counter attack. 

Wigan should’ve sealed the game with 10 minutes to go, as a ball from the left-hand side by Samy Morsy found Ivan Toney at the back post who headed the ball back to Nick Powell who blazed a volley high and over the bar from just 8 yards out. 

Powell would then rectify his mistake in the 80th minute, as substitute Stephen Mclaughlin cheaply gave away the ball in the centre of the park, before Nick Powell was put in one on one and evaded the offside trap, as he calmly dummied a shot and ran around Oxley to then slot the ball into the empty net. 

The Latics then added a third goal through Ivan Toney who slotted the ball in from close range following a cross from the left wing by Gary Roberts. 

This completed what was a tough afternoon for Blues who will be looking to bounce back against Peterborough on Tuesday night at Roots Hall.
