Vote - Latics Player of the Month - September
Who is your Latics Player of the Month?
Wigan Athletic enjoyed success in the Carling Cup during September when local rivals Preston North End were beaten at the DW Stadium in dramatic fashion with Jordi Gomez getting his second goal of the season and Charles N`Zogbia stealing the show with his late, late winner.
Alongside the Carling Cup game the Latics have played three Premier League fixtures during September, losing to Manchester City and drawing with Sunderland and Birmingham.
There have been some good performances throughout the month, Steve Gohouri and Antolin Alcaraz have played well together, James McCarthy has been coming more to the fore with each game and Hendry Thomas is showing good early season form.
Emmerson Boyce has settled into the season well and following his transfer wrangling Charles N`Zogbia has been very good since he`s been back in the team, but for me the player who has stood head and shoulders above the rest has been Ali Al-Habsi
The on loan keeper has brought an assurance and confidence to the defence, his handling and decision making have been very good and his agility is excellent, the Oman international has made a great start to his Latics career conceding just 4 goals in his first 6 games and keeping 3 clean sheets
