Kupisz the key as Wigan win

On a night more suited to polar explorers, Wigan's superior enterprise and skill overcame an enthusiastic but limited Bolton side.

All eyes were on Wigan's new Ivory Coast signing Steven Gohuri but it was Wigan's young Polish star Tomas Kupisz who stole the show with another classy performance which should see him pushing for a first team squad place sooner rather than later.

Latics tore into Bolton from the start with Kupisz , Cwyka and the forgotten man Bouaouzan looking lively. At the back Gohuri looked palpably short of match fitness but in truth was very rarely troubled by the opposition.

Latics for all their first half dominance failed to create any real chances , mainly shooting over from distance where as Nicholls Latics promising (and very vocal) keeper only had one save to make.

The second half saw Latics continue in the same vein and eventually their domiance told when a good break by Bouaouzan put Kupisz in who finished well.

Bouaouzon was involved in the second goal when his break led to a chance for Joe Holt and the young attacking midfielder placed the ball well which secured the three points.

Bouaouzan almost capped off a fine evening when put through but his shot when one on one with the keeper was well saved.

Full time brought to a close a good evening's work for the Wigan side and relief for the the frozen fans.

Star Player

Tomas Kupisz....week in week out he looks the part and I am surprised he hasn't been included in Bob's first team plans yet.
