Wigan Athletic and Bolton played out a goalless draw in yesterdays FA Cup 4th round tie at the Reebok, Vital Latics member J_Mo went along to the game and was impressed by the performance, below he sets out his player ratings for the game, over to you J_Mo:
Mike Pollitt – 6
Didn’t have many saves to make, but I think we missed Ali’s quicker distribution.
Emmerson Boyce – 6
Did ok, but struggled to cope with Petrov. Good to see him get a full ninety minutes under his belt though.
Gary Caldwell – 7
Showed us why we missed him against Villa. Solid at the back, and put himself about at the other end of the pitch too.
Adrian Lopez – 6
Didn’t do a lot wrong. Surely a better option than Stevie Caldwell at the back, Roberto?!?
Maynor Figueroa – 8
Maybe a little controversial but I thought he was excellent today. Supported Moses well and much better defensively.
James McArthur – 6
Fairly quiet game, but tidy in possession.
Ben Watson – 5
Hasn’t been at his best recently. Will struggle to keep his place with McCarthy back in the picture.
Momo Diame – 7
Made some great runs with the ball, but faded towards the end of the game.
Jordi Gomez – 7
Best player on the pitch in the first half, but struggled after the break. Forced Jaaskelainen into a decent save at the end, and his passing is second to none, but it seems the other side to his game will forever frustrate Latics fans.
Callum McManaman – 8
Tough test today for Callum being marked by two strong and quick centre backs, but he passed it with flying colours. Full of energy, and not afraid to take a shot on.
Victor Moses – 7
Caused problems, and might have had a goal if he was match fit. A few grumbles in the crowd when he was subbed off but he looked knackered.
A good performance from the Latics, especially in the first half when we dominated for long periods. A replay isn’t ideal, but today should give us some confidence going into the West Brom game on Tuesday.
