Pearce in line for Wigan job

Pearce in line for Wigan job

Stuart Pearce is believed to be the number one choice as the next manager of Wigan Athletic should the Latics not win on Saturday

Contrary to reports in one local paper (they get it wrong again) it is understood by Vital Wigan that Dave Whelan has made Saturdays home game against Chelsea a win or bust game for current manager Chris Hutchings

The dreadful run of late coupled with some of the players not being 100% behind the current boss may have led to the decision to look else where for a new captain of the good ship Latics

It is believed that there is a short list of three candidates with Stuart Pearce, the current England under-21 boss, at the top of the list

Pearce earned rave reviews from Whelan when he was manager of Manchester City and Whelan called for a 'dream team` of Pearce and Jewell to be appointed the next England joint managers.

The others on the list are believed to be Chris Coleman, Graeme Souness

Saturday is a big game and even if there is a Wigan win it is still expected that there will be a change of manager

Stuart Pearce the right choice?

Latics v QPR - Big Game Preview

An important game at the DW Stadium tomorrow for the Latics, Gary Caldwell will be hoping to banish the disappointment of conceding a 93 minute goal away at Forest last Saturday that saw a point slip away after coming from behind three times in the game.

QPR are in town, they aren't quite the multi-millionaires that they were the last time that we met, that was in the play off semi-final in 2014, but they do have a squad with lots of quality and will certainly pose a threat.
