Whelan Urges Latics Supporters To Come On Down

Whelan Urges Latics Supporters To Come On Down




Wigan Athletic chairman Dave Whelan has pleaded with the Latics fans to turn out in force for tomorrows home encounter against Everton, a game that the Latics really need to win.

In an interview with the Manchester Evening News, Whelan says that the league is as tight as it`s ever been down at the bottom end of the table and there is nothing to choose between the teams who are currently in the last six places

A win against Everton could prove vital to the Latics chances of survival Whelan sees it has a massive game and he is urging the local folk to come out in their numbers for this one.

Speaking to the Manchester Evening News Whelan said: "I am really appealing to the local people to turn out in force and get behind us because this is a massive game and a crucial stage of the season. We have played some really good football this season and we just need a few things to go for us, maybe a little luck but you make your own luck.

"Having said that, a good start and some strong play will be vital, it always is.

"I have never known a season like this because all the clubs who are in the bottom six have played some terrific football and have a lot of quality in their ranks.

"It is just so tight down at the bottom of the table with nothing to choose between the teams. But I predicted this very early on in the year.

"This is possibly one of the toughest, tightest and most competitive Premier Leagues there has been for some time."


Whelan wants more of this
