Match Report: Wigan Athletic 1-3 AFC Bournemouth

The high flying coastal team of Bournemouth came to play the helpless Wigan in a list of games which must have had the managerial staff worried. A draw against Ipswich last time out gave us hope though.

Too much hope was given maybe? I think it felt like everything would be fixed and all okay. That of course didn't happen, instead we have issues that lie deep in the team and that all comes down to a lack of scoring goals.

In the end we did grab a goal, that was with half an hour to go from debutant Leon Clarke. Yet through a game where we dominated large portions of possession and had some half decent chances in the first half we should have gone ahead, and maybe there would have been a different outcome.

That said we faced up against a side who have far excelled this season and you feel that even if they hadn't got a massive slice of luck of their first goal, Callum Wilson quite clearly offside, they would have still won the game. Wilson would bag two goals for the Cherries, the first a well taken effort following his slice of fortune the second another cool finish which rounded of the scoring.

In between which Yann Kermont grabbed the second just before half time, another possible offside there. The fortunes were defiantly with the league leaders in this one.

There were positive for the blue and white army though.

South Korean Kim Bo-Kuyng looked like he will fit in nicely with the side, that character of hard work that a lot of players from South Korea have shone through. Whilst Liverpool younger Ojo Sheyi could be a key player in sparking success as he came on at asked some questions of Bournemouth.

The other thing to take away was a striker scoring! That isn't something we have managed to shout home about much this season. Maybe Leon Clarke's loan move from Wolverhampton Wanderers could prove to be a vital piece of business.

Another defeat but signs of hope? All we can is wait and see what transpires in the coming games. It is getting hard to tell what we are going to do.
