PRE-MATCH BUILD-UP

Latics head to Southend United on a 16-match unbeaten run across Sky Bet League One and the Emirates FA Cup, but Paul Cook's side will come up against a stern test when they face Chris Powell's revitalised Shrimpers.

The Roots Hall club have captured back-to-back victories since Powell's arrival towards the end of January. A last minute 3-2 victory at home to Scunthorpe United thanks to Michael Turner kicked off the new era in style, before last weekend's 1-0 away win against Peterborough United.

Cook's Latics are unbeaten in eight League One games on the road, winning all six of their last outings, with the most recent victory a 3-1 turnaround against in-form Plymouth Argyle.

POSITION

Latics – 1st, 63 points
Southend United – 15th, 37 points

The Shrimpers' upturn in form under new manager Chris Powell has been a timely boost, with back-to-back victories lifting them away from the League One relegation battle. Southend are now five clear of danger and will have their sights set on upper mid-table in their current winning mood, but they'll still have to keep one eye over their shoulder to see off the risk completely.

Latics continue to go from strength-to-strength and now sit two points clear of Shrewsbury Town with a game in hand, and four points clear of third place Blackburn Rovers with two games in hand. Paul Cook's men are a massive 17 points clear of seventh.

HEAD-TO-HEAD RECORD

Latics suffered their first defeat of 2018 on Saturday afternoon as they went down 3-1 to Southend United, who remain unbeaten under new boss Chris Powell.

Paul Cook’s side couldn’t have got off to a worse start in Essex as Michael Turner put the Shrimpers ahead before Marc-Antoine Fortune scored against his former club for 2-0.

James Vaughan gave Latics hope with his first goal for the club but Michael Kightly made sure of the points in the final ten minutes, finishing from close range.

Cook made two changes from the win over Gillingham last time out, with Callum Elder and Gavin Massey returning in place of Reece James and Ryan Colclough.

The hosts were ahead after just three minutes as Stephen McLaughlin’s free-kick from the right was headed in at the back post by Turner.

On the quarter hour, Latics had their first opportunity for a response as Callum Elder’s cross fell kindly for Nick Powell, who surprisingly fired off target when well-placed from 12 yards.

Max Power was the first to force a save from Southend goalkeeper Mark Oxley, shooting direct from a free-kick from 25 yards after Powell was clattered by Anton Ferdinand.

Soon after, though, Fortune made it 2-0, finishing neatly past Christian Walton from Simon Cox’s flick-on.

Cox could have then made it three six minutes later as he fired just over from Ben Coker’s cross from the left.

After a delay early in the second-half following a clash of heads between Fortune and Dunkley, Latics were thankful for a Dan Burn goal-line clearance to deny Ferdinand a third for the Shrimpers after the experienced defender managed to get space in the area from a Southend set-piece.

Cook made a double change just after the hour mark and it paid immediate dividends. First, Gary Roberts, who replaced Michael Jacobs, broke down the left and cut-back for a number of Latics players in the box only to see his cross cleared. Then Latics got one back as Vaughan, who came on for Gavin Massey, finished well for his first Latics goal from a Nathan Byrne cross from the right.

A leveller almost came two minutes later as a well-delivered Power corner was headed over by Burn.

Grigg was then denied from a Power cross as Latics applied pressure but the decisive the third soon came for the hosts as Kightly fired in from close range after Christian Walton saved Simon Cox’s initial effort.

Southend United: Oxley; Coker (Capt), Turner, Demetriou, Ferdinand; Kightly (McGlashan 90), Timlin, McLaughlin, Yearwood; Fortune (Ladapo 69), Cox (Harrison 85).
Subs: Bishop, Bwomono, Kyprianou, Klass.

Wigan Athletic: Walton; Byrne, Dunkley, Burn, Elder; Morsy (Capt), Power; Jacobs (Roberts 62), Powell (Colclough 86), Massey (Vaughan 62); Grigg.
Subs: Jones, Bruce, Perkins, Fulton.
