Chris McCann has been voted the Vital Latics man of the match for his performance in last Saturday’s 4-1 victory over Southend United at the DW Stadium.

McCann was superb as he played in a more advanced role than usual, he was in an old fashioned inside left position and caused the Southend defence quite a few problems by getting himself into some really good positions.

He opened the scoring after making an excellent run to get on the end of Michael Jacobs’ through ball and calmly slotted home from the left side of the ‘D’ on the edge of the box into the far bottom corner. McCann also hit the post minutes later and then ‘scuffed’ an effort straight at the Southend keeper.

A great performance from the Latics number 7 and well deserved accolade.

For the record the voting was:

Chris McCann – 38%
Michael Jacobs – 18%
Stephen Warnock – 17%.

A bumper edition this week as we start with a look back at the Southend game, Gareth’s stats and Si’s ‘off the terrace’ report get us on our way before we start to analyse the game.

Will Grigg’s disappointment at being subbed on the verge of a hat-trick, Michael Jacobs’ 10/10 performance and Chris McCann in the attacking midfield role come under scrutiny.

Refereeing decisions once again are a topic for discussion, this time the ludicrous red card given to Colchester’s Joe Edwards in their game with Burton, the card has been rescinded, the game was poised at 0-0, Burton went on to beat the Col’s 3-0.

We reveal THREE players for the Joseph’s Goal charity game between the Latics Legends and the Dutch Masters and they are biggies.

Massive party and game this weekend at Blackpool, can we win the title at Bloomfield Road? What a party this will be.
