Player Ratings - Bolton 0-0 Latics

Player Ratings - Bolton 0-0 Latics


Wigan Athletic and Bolton played out a goalless draw in yesterdays FA Cup 4th round tie at the Reebok, Vital Latics member J_Mo went along to the game and was impressed by the performance, below he sets out his player ratings for the game, over to you J_Mo:


Mike Pollitt - 6

Didn't have many saves to make, but I think we missed Ali's quicker distribution.


Emmerson Boyce - 6

Did ok, but struggled to cope with Petrov. Good to see him get a full ninety minutes under his belt though.


Gary Caldwell - 7

Showed us why we missed him against Villa. Solid at the back, and put himself about at the other end of the pitch too.


Adrian Lopez - 6

Didn't do a lot wrong. Surely a better option than Stevie Caldwell at the back, Roberto?!?


Maynor Figueroa - 8

Maybe a little controversial but I thought he was excellent today. Supported Moses well and much better defensively.


James McArthur - 6

Fairly quiet game, but tidy in possession.


Ben Watson - 5

Hasn't been at his best recently. Will struggle to keep his place with McCarthy back in the picture.


Momo Diame - 7

Made some great runs with the ball, but faded towards the end of the game.


Jordi Gomez - 7

Best player on the pitch in the first half, but struggled after the break. Forced Jaaskelainen into a decent save at the end, and his passing is second to none, but it seems the other side to his game will forever frustrate Latics fans.


Callum McManaman - 8

Tough test today for Callum being marked by two strong and quick centre backs, but he passed it with flying colours. Full of energy, and not afraid to take a shot on.


Victor Moses - 7

Caused problems, and might have had a goal if he was match fit. A few grumbles in the crowd when he was subbed off but he looked knackered.


Verdict:

A good performance from the Latics, especially in the first half when we dominated for long periods. A replay isn't ideal, but today should give us some confidence going into the West Brom game on Tuesday.

I also thought Lopez looked like he has portential, after his 1st minute jitter he settled quickly and went on to have a tidy game, his distribution was good and he looked good on teh deck and in the air. McManaman man of the match for me, looks good and hits the target when he shoots, which is novel for us!!!

Lopez was abit sloppy at Hull, so maybe he's catching up with the pace of the game.
