Wigan vs Southend Big Match Preview

Wigan Athletic

Southend United

DW Stadium

15:00

Wigan return to the DW Stadium after picking up a vital three points at Scunthorpe last week. Latics are currently on a five game winning streak at home, and have done so without conceding a goal.

We welcome Sam Morsy and Michael
Jacobs back into the squad tomorrow, which gives us a very strong looking squad for Paul Cook to pick from.

Southend have struggled so far this season, and currently lie in the relegation zone. It should, I repeat should, be a comfortable home win tomorrow.

On the plus side, we can move top of the league tomorrow.

Vital Quotes:

Wigan Athletic Team News:

Morsy returns have being on international duty with Egypt, who qualified for next summers World Cup in Russia. Jacobs will also return to the squad after sitting out last weeks win over Scunthorpe

Player to watch: Nick Powell

Took his goal brilliantly last week. Expecting Southend to sit deep for large periods of the game, need Powell to show his class and unlock the defence

Southend United Team News:

Anton Ferdinand will miss out through suspension, while Harry Kyprianou and ex-Latic defender Rob Kieran remain sidelined through injury.

Player to watch: Simon Cox

Always dangerous for opponents. Works hard, scores goals and deserves to play at a higher level.
