Man Of the Match: Wigan Athletic vs Bournemouth

Ben Hoskins

I review who was the stand out act in our 3-0 win at home to Bournemouth.

Uwe Rosler's made it 14 points out of 18 in the League and 4 cleans sheets on the bounce as Latics strolled past new boys AFC Bournemouth. Goals from Marc Antoine Fortune and Jordi Gomez with a helping hand from Elliot Ward gifted the Latics all 3 points in a somewhat convincing win.

Although the scoreline suggest we were on top for all the game, Bournemouth did spurn their chances to cause the Latics some worry with Cherries Striker Lewis Grabban causing the Wigan back four a series of worries with his movement and pace.

Wigan eventually strolled to victory and in my view, lots of players contributed massively. As ever Leon Barnett was solid at the back dealing with anything that came his way, Emmerson Boyce demonstrated great leadership and organised the defence well. Nick Powell put in another good performance attacking wise, creating chances and shifting ball well, he again proved a major threat to the opposition. Fortune with his goal put in a decent performace however the striker looked like he couldn't be bothered in putting the slightest bit of effort in during the last 20 minutes of the game. Ali Al-Habsi proved very important to the side keeping Bournemouth out on several occasions with several fantastic saves.

Summing all this up, My Man of the Match goes to James McArthur, the Scot put in a fantastic performance dominating the midfield from start to finish, he passed the ball with ease finding feet on every occasion, defending wise protected the back four solidly.
