Charles N`Zogbia has been voted Wigan Athletic man of the match in the Carling Cup win against Preston North End by Vital Latics voters, even though the little Frenchman only came on as a half-time substitute.

Latics started the game with four central midfielders and no wide men, this left play very narrow and no real attacking outlets, add to this the fact that they were struggling to string two passes together in the first 45 minutes let alone create any chances, so it came as a mighty relief when Charlie took to the field of play at the start of the second half.

N`Zogbia immediately made an impact out wide on the left, he ran at the Preston defenders and he saw plenty of the ball with Latics searching for a way back into the game and he slammed home the winner in the 92nd minute following Gomez` equaliser.

A good game changing performance from the badge kissing hero.

For the record the voting was:

Charles N`Zogbia – 68%
Jordi Gomez – 15%
Franco Di Santo – 10%
