Ten minutes past four on the Sabbath 6th of April as the sun begins to think about going down under the yardarm Wigan Athletic will be looking for three-in-a-row to consolidate Premiership safety.
QPR for all the money they have spent, for all the bullish behaviour towards us sit seven points behind the Latics, dare I say it even a defeat would not be a total disaster for us, however a reversal in Shepherds Bush for the home outfit would surely be the end for them.
A 2-2 draw was played out at The DW in December so Latics will be looking to increase the points tally against The Hoops to four thus strengthening their league position out of the relegation quagmire and heaping serious mental pressure on the rest of the bottom half of the division.
Latics will be buoyed after back to back wins while a dark cloud must hangover Loftus Road after four defeats in six games, Harry will really have to motivate his squad like never before while Roberto must keep calm and play the Latics relegation way of seasons gone by.
On our last visit Hugo Rodallega scored in a 3-1 defeat in front of 16002 fans, meanwhile star defender Antolin Alcaraz and I do wonder exactly were we would be if he had played the majority of this season had to say …..
“”I enjoyed the three points after beating Norwich City but straight after the game it’s time to move on and look towards the next three points that are up for grabs against Queens Park Rangers.
It’s important to claim as many points as we can before the end of the season and at this moment we are more focussed than ever.
You never know what special moments we could create again this season but the most important thing now is to look towards the QPR game.”
So in conclusion our worst enemy in all this will be “the done it all before” jocular media press bunkum that is being bandied about, just because you have been there and done it does not mean you will be ok every time.
The whole club need to realise that with just another few hard fought victories all this heartache can be put to bed way before the last league game of the season against fellow strugglers Aston Villa, another outfit whose fans look down on us, pray what exactly were the league positions of the two clubs last season? Plus have a look at the table now as well just for good measure.
