Player Ratings - Latics 1-0 Manchester United

Player Ratings - Latics 1-0 Manchester United



A great performance and result by the Latics last night as they beat would be Champions Manchester United 1-0 at the DW Stadium, Vital Wigan member Jonathan Moffatt, aka J_MO has kindly supplied us with his player ratings:

Al Habsi - 7
Had surprisingly little to do, but did his job well when called upon.

Boyce - 7
Not as effective going forward, but solid as usual at the back.

Alcaraz - 7
Has definitely improved in recent weeks after going off the boil earlier in the season.

Caldwell - 8
Captain leading by example. Made Rooney invisible for most of the game.

Figueroa - 6
Decent performance overall, but his panicky moment when he handballed in the second half could have been very costly.

Beausejour - 8
What a difference this man his made. His crosses caused problems for Man Utd all night.

McArthur - 8
Possibly his best game in a Latics shirt. Ran himself into the ground.

McCarthy - 7
Another players who has massively improved after some poor performances earlier in the season. Great understanding with McArthur in the middle of the park.

Moses - 8
His first half goal should have stood, but it didn't slow him down. A real handful all game - no small feat when you're up against Patrice Evra.

Di Santo - 8
A lot of his work went relatively unnoticed, but defending from the front is a lot easier with someone as willing as Franco as striker.

Maloney - 9
Simply outstanding and scored an excellent winning goal. He may have only played nine games this season, but surely he's a serious contender for the Player of the Year award?

Subs:

Diame - 7

Provided some much needed relief when Man Utd were on the ascendency.

Sammon - 7
I've been critical of him this season but did an excellent job last night. Put pressure on the United defence when they were pushing forward for an equaliser.

The action(?) from yesterday's game at the DW Stadium between Wigan Athletic and Nottingham Forest which ended goalless:

Report - Latics 0 Forest 0 - What A Shocker

Thirteen games to save our Championship status, first up a home game against Nottingham Forest who are on a shocking run of form, conceded 10 goals in their last three matches, three of their first choice defenders missing through injury, they had lost 11 of their 16 away games this season with a -16 goal difference on the road and sat just six points above us in the table, surely a game that we would set out to win.

Checking the team selection I felt slightly optimistic but slightly conf
