Vote For Your Latics Man Of The Match v Villa



The Wigan Athletic performance on the whole may have been somewhat subdued in Saturday's 2-0 defeat away at Aston Villa, but there were some individual's that had good games.

Rather than go through the entire team I thought that Diame, Stam and van Aanholt had decent enough games, but for me both Ali Al-Habsi and Franco Di Santo were the pick of the bunch. Quite difficult to separate actually, Franco ploughed a lonely furrow up front but he did so manfully and should have won a penalty for his side when he was bundled over by Hutton, he was also unlucky with a late effort that Villa keeper Given gathered.

Ali produced a few great saves, one in particular in the first half was outstanding, he somehow managed to keep a Bent shot out by firstly deflecting the effort with his left knee and then clawing the ball away from goal with his right hand, fantastic stuff

Franco or Ali? Are you having a laugh? Unless there was another Franco other than Di Santo.
