Wigan Athletic 1-3 Bolton Wanderers – Premier League – 15 October 2011
Wigan gave yet another fine example of how not to defend in their 3-1 home defeat at the hands of Bolton.
Defensive errors were central to the home side’s defeat yet again, with Bolton, a side hardly on top form this season, all too happy to capitalise.
Nigel Reo-Coker, a man once touted as a future England regular, netted a rare strike after just four minutes, with David Ngog (another rare scorer of a goal) and Chris Eagles bagging the other Bolton goals. Indeed, former Manchester United starlet Chris Eagles was the star turn at the DW Stadium, with a superb display of attacking play.
Mohamed Diame did net a superb long-range strike to level the scores on 40 minutes, but Wigan’s defensive frailty would cost them the game.
Surely time is running out for Roberto Martinez?
