Vital Wigans match analyser Sprayzen provides some insight into the goings on in the game over at Eastlands between Manchester City and Wigan Athletic?.
?a game of missed chances for Wigan and none more than Zaki’s sitter of a header late in the game
Wigan in the 2nd half went all out attack, but the story really of there season sees them attack but fail to convert their chances the vast majority of times
De Ridder I thought was great when he came on and really saw Wigan pick the game up another notch, Valencia was also the other attacking avenue on the flanks and caused no end of headaches as the game went on.
Talk of City going for Palacios well it wouldn’t surprise me if they target Valencia either.
Speaking of Palacios he got another yellow card today and will miss his next 2 matches, as to who they will be for is the main question.
Further to this he also went off the park late with a hamstring injury as to the extent of the injury time will tell.
An injury at this time could cause the deals on offer pulled off the table or reduced offers given which might work in Wigans favour as might the 2 match suspension.
