Paul Scharner has been voted the Vital Latics man of the match for his performance in the 2-2 draw with Southampton last Saturday

Scharner was of course making his SECOND debut for the Latics following his loan move from Hamburg on deadline day, he played like he’d never been away and put in an accomplished performance in the back-line

Hopefully his return will prove to be an inspired signing by Latics boss Roberto Martinez, with Scharner’s experience and qualities brining some stability to the defence for the closing stages of the season

For the record the voting was:

Paul Scharner – 58%
Shaun Maloney – 25%
Ali Al Habsi – 9%

The new poll is now available on the right side of this page, to participate in the vote simply access the poll, select your preferred option and then hit the submit button, it’s that easy

The latest edition of the PWU Wigan Athletic podcast is now available for download.

This week in the studio are Barry, Dan, Gareth, Greg, Paul and Mick who discuss in detail the draw with Southampton (00:00), player performances and formations. The international break (19:25) is also discussed, fingers crossed that there are no injuries picked up.

There is a preview of Saturday’s Premier League game against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge (21:40)

We finish off the proceedings with a difference of opinion on our survival chances this season, though I’m sure a couple of results either way and we’ll all be in a little more agreement!
