The voters on the last poll on Vital Wigan voted for Australian midfielder Josip Skoko to take the accolade of man of the match in Wigan Athletics 3-0 win at Sunderland in the FA Cup 3rd round

Rare start

Skoko made a rare start for the Latics this season but he was instrumental in getting the Latics through to the 4th round by setting up the first goal for Paul Scharner

There were some other big performances from David Cotterill, Paul Scharner and Andreas Granqvist that all added up to help Latics secure the win and set up the fourth round tie against cup holders Chelsea at the JJB

What the poll asked – Man of Match Vs Sunderland

How you voted – Josip Skoko 38%, Paul Scharner 20%, Andreas Granqvist 12%

Current Poll – Whilst the FA Cup provided a nice distraction this weekend sees us back to league action and what a massive game awaits this Saturday at Pride Park

Derby County are now managed by our former boss Paul Jewell and they are sitting 10 points and three places below us in 20th spot in the table, a win and we can forget about them but a loss and its game on.

The importance of this game is immense and with Derby bringing in new players this week, Robbie Savage signed today, they will be a side on a mission to put some pride back into Pride Park

Latics though are bang in form and the last two away games brought a 1-1 draw at Liverpool and a 3-0 win at Sunderland so the question is – ‘Who`ll win on Saturday?`

Let the poll do the talking before we do when it finishes.
