Wigan Preview

Sat 3rd March - 3pm - Eastlands

Just a point separates 15th placed City and 17th Placed Wigan as we head into what has surprisingly not been dubbed a six pointer. A win for City would all but ease the relegation spectre lurking in the background, while a win for Wigan would put a 3 game cushion between themselves and Charlton.

Of course Wigans fall from grace has hardly been there own fault as whining scouse Paul Jewell has stated every week its the refs , a conspiracy to get them relegated or more likely the alignment of reality with Uranus. A win against Newcastle last week had Jewell state with probably no understanding of the word irony that 'he didn't want to talk about referees' , given he spent the last 2 months doing nothing but some might say about fucking time. While Stuart Pearce has his critics in the club for not saying anything about referees I would much prefer he said nothing than make a complete fool out of himself like Jewell has done.

Onto todays game , Wigan have Fitz Hall missing through suspension (not his fault though, Paul Jewell) probably more of a blow for Wigan is Henri Camara is missing after aggravating his previous injury in training this week. City have long term injuries Sinclair , Onohua and Vassell missing. New signing Emile Mpenza is in the squad but not expected to figure.

Prediction :

1-1 - neither side hauling themselves clear.
