PRE-MATCH BUILD UP

Latics welcome Charlton Athletic to the DW Stadium on Friday evening for their final fixture of the calendar year, hoping to see out 2017 by extending their unbeaten run in Sky Bet League One to seven matches.

Paul Cook’s side have impressed in the league so far, scoring 49 goals in 23 matches and collecting 16 victories and 14 clean sheets as they sit four points clear at the top of the table.

Charlton’s recent fortunes are stark contrast to Latics’, dropping out of the play-off places after a run of six matches without a victory.

TEAM NEWS

There are no fresh injury concerns for Paul Cook’s side, but the same can’t be said for the visitors who have 17 players side-lined heading into 2018.

As reported by London News Online, forward Ricky Holmes is the latest to join Karl Robinson’s long list of absences, with other first team players Billy Clarke, Lewis Page, Tarique Fosu-Henry, Jake Forster-Caskey, Chris Solly, Patrick Bauer, Leon Best, Mark Marshall and former Latics defender Jason Pearce all in the treatment room.  The Addicks also have eight of their under-23 players out, with Josh Umerah, Louis Yamfam, Kenneth Yao, Taylor Maloney, Mikhail Kennedy, Archie Edwards and Regan Charles-Cook unable to plug the gaps left by first team injuries.

POSITION

Latics – 1st
Charlton Athletic – 9th

Despite being held to a 0-0 draw at the DW Stadium by Shrewsbury Town on Boxing Day, Latics remain firmly in the driving seat at the top of Sky Bet League One, four points above their last opponents Salop, and five clear of third place Blackburn Rovers, who cut the gap from seven with their 2-0 win against Rochdale on Tuesday.

The Addicks are heading the other way.  Their current run of six matches without a win has seen Charlton drop from automatic promotion rivals to ninth in the table, behind Rotherham United, Portsmouth and sixth placed Peterborough United.

HEAD-TO-HEAD RECORD

League: Latics 4 wins, Charlton 4 wins, 1 draw – 12 scored, 10 conceded

Latics’ home record: 3 wins, 1 defeat – 8 scored, 6 conceded

You have to go back to the 2013-14 season for Latics’ last home victory over Charlton, and even then they left it late, with Marc-Antoine Fortune equalising two minutes from time, before Jordi Gomez’s exquisite free kick earned all three points in stoppage time.

Our leading scorer in clashes with the Addicks is former Senegal international Henri Camara with four.  Camara scored our first ever Premier League hat-trick against Charlton in a 3-0 win in December 2005, before adding to his tally in Paul Jewell’s side’s 3-2 victory at home the following season.

REPORT: WIGAN ATHLETIC 0 - 0 CHARLTON ATHLETIC

29 December 2017

Report from the DW Stadium where Wigan Athletic were held to a 0-0 draw by Charlton Athletic.

  • Match Report: Wigan Athletic 0 – 0 Charlton Athletic
  • Latics now unbeaten in nine in all competitions
  • Fourth consecutive clean sheet for Paul Cook’s side

Wigan Athletic will enter 2018 as Sky Bet League One leaders after being held to a 0-0 draw by Charlton Athletic at the DW Stadium on Friday evening.

Samy Morsy hit the post late on for Latics, who also went close through Nick Powell, Will Grigg and Ivan Toney, though Karlan Ahearne-Grant almost stole it at the death on the break for Karl Robinson’s Addicks.

Callum Elder replaced Reece James in the only change from Boxing Day’s stalemate with Shrewsbury Town.

Latics’ earliest chance in the game came through Grigg, who headed off target when really he should have beat Ben Amos at close range after a whipped delivery from Lee Evans.

At the other end, Johnnie Jackson almost scored as he attacked Ahearne-Grant’s cross at the near post but couldn’t make a significant connection.

As half-time approached, a moment of sheer quality from Powell almost got Latics in front as the ball fell to him on the volley 30 yards out after a set-piece and he forced a smart save from Ben Amos.

However, Ahearne-Grant may have had the best chance of the half in stoppage time as he saw the ball fall fortunately into his path but fired wide of Christian Walton’s near post on the half volley.

Early in the second-half save, Morsy forced a save from Amos before Ahmed Kashi fired over at the other end.

The Addicks then dangerously broke through Ahearne-Grant and he rounded Walton before seeing his goal-bound effort cleared off the line by Dan Burn.

Powell then headed narrowly off target before a Jacobs drive was well-saved again by Amos, with Evans then having a penalty appeal turned down as he attacked the area following a knock-down from Ivan Toney, whose introduction sparked a more direct approach from Cook’s side.

From another Toney knock-down, Grigg was almost in again as the final ten minutes beckoned.

However, at the other end Ahearne-Grant’s pace caused problems and he raced in behind to shoot narrowly off target at Walton’s near post – a collective sigh of relief from the DW Stadium.

Morsy almost grabbed the winner in stoppage time, though, as his 20-yard effort was deflected onto the post before flying across goal and behind for a corner.

It wasn’t to be for Latics, though, who now focus their attentions on their New Year’s Day match at Northampton Town, looking to follow up recent impressive away wins at AFC Wimbledon and Oxford United.

Wigan Athletic: Walton; Byrne, Dunkley, Burn, Elder; Morsy, Evans; Massey (Toney 59), Powell (Power 88), Jacobs (Hunt 85); Grigg.
Subs: Sarkic, Perkins, Bruce, Roberts.

Chief executive Jonathan Jackson explained that the offer is a chance to innovate within the club's ticket pricing strategy, with a view to helping Paul Cook's side in their promotion bid with increased attendances.

"Paul has got the team playing great football this season and we are enjoying some of the best results in our history within this campaign," Jackson said.

"We have been listening to supporters over the course of the past few months and have monitored feedback on the club website and social media about ticket pricing and we feel this match presents us with an opportunity, just after Christmas, to reduce admission prices and get additional supporters behind the players.

"For adult supporters, we will also remove the ‘on the day’ price increase of £2, although we still advise buying in advance or arriving early to avoid queues.

“This is an important match for Latics and it would be great to see a boosted home support under the lights at the DW in our final match of 2017.”
