Hugo's Back! Latics Beat Bolton - Lancs Senior Cup

Hugo's Back! Latics Beat Bolton - Lancs Senior Cup




Wigan Athletic all time leading Premier League marksman Hugo Rodallega is back in action for the Latics following a summer competing in the Copa America.

Rodallega featured in a Latics XI that took on near neighbours Bolton in a Lancashire Senior Cup tie this afternoon and he completed an hour of the game before being replaced, but boss Roberto Martinez says his star man is ready for Saturdays opener against Norwich.

Thanks to Ed Jones, Latics media manager for the following match report and press release:

Hugo Rodallega played an hour in his first pre-season appearance for Latics, as the Reserves won through on penalties against neighbours Bolton Wanderers. Ronnie Stam also played an hour as he steps back to full fitness, while Chris Kirkland played the full game.

Kirkland saved two penalties in the shootout, and also made two excellent saves during the 90 minutes as he came through the game unscathed.

Rodallega looked sharp, especially early on, striking the post in the first half, while young winger Steve Boothman had Latics` best chance, Bolton keeper Jay Lynch making a good stop.

Rodallega only returned to England a week ago and manager Martinez says last season's Golden Boot winner is in good shape. "Hugo had a good tournament with Colombia in the Copa America and there is no problem with his fitness. He will be ready."

For the record, Daniel Redmond, Jordan Rugg, Adam Buxton and Roman Golobart were on the mark from the penalty spot.

The game was held at Christopher Park Training Ground

Latics - Kirkland, Stam (Buxton, 60), Mustoe, Golobart, Robinson, Chow, Myler, Dawson (Watson, 71), Rodallega (Rugg, 60), Boothman, Redmond Subs:- Hare, Buxton, Watson, Morris, Rugg.

I can't see Hugo scoring many goals this season at this rate.

Latics v Latics - Big Game Preview

The new pitch has been laid, marked and hovered in time for the visit of Oldham Athletic in what could be a very significant League 1 clash.

If results go our way, come 5pm tonight we could find ourselves in second spot in the league table, a position that would set us up nicely for next week's clash with promotion rivals Walsall, but let's not get ahead of ourselves.
