Kevin Kilbane is confident that Wigan Athletic will continue their winning home form when they take on Sunderland tomorrow (Saturday) at the JJB
Kilbane, who has been some what of a revelation at left back since Leighton Baines` move to Everton, told the Sunderland Echo, 'We (Latics) have got to be optimistic about our chances with us being at home.
'The Middlesbrough win was a big one, it got us up and running, and I don't see why we can't win again tomorrow"
The positives coming out of the Latics at the moment are a refreshing change from last seasons doom and gloom.
Chris Hutchings and all the players are saying the right things to give the fans optimism about the coming season,
Both Paul Scharner and Antoine Sibierski have spoken about the club challenging for a European place this year
Back to Kilbane and following the Middlesbrough game there were calls from certain sections of the crowd for him to be named man of the match, not bad for a much maligned player who was playing out of position.
Kilbane`s effort has never been questioned and he always gives 100% and never hides thus making him an easy target when things go wrong, it`s nice to see him getting praise whilst things are going right
This may surprise Sunderland supporters to hear the phrase 'man of the match` and Kevin Kilbane in the same sentence, but they could be in for a shock tomorrow if they think their wide man will be in for an easy ride
Kilbane, by his own admission didn`t have the best of times in the Sunderland team, and come three o`clock tomorrow afternoon he`ll want to show the Mackems that he isn`t as bad as they make out
Are you pleased with Killer Kilbane`s performances so far this season?
