MATCH PREVIEW

Having won four of their last five games, Phil Brown's Southend United arrive at the DW Stadium in better form than the Sky Bet League One table suggests.

However, their slow start makes them underdogs against in-form Latics, who could win four consecutive Sky Bet League One games for the first time since March 2016.

A win for Paul Cook's side would lift them to the top of Sky Bet League One should Shrewsbury Town fail to win at Plymouth.

FORM GUIDE – LAST SIX

Latics – WWLWWW, 15 points

Southend – LDWWWL, 10 points

HEAD TO HEAD RECORD

Southend head to the DW having lost on their only visit here - in 2016 when Latics all-but secured their promotion to the Championship with a 4-1 win.

The Shrimpers have struggled in Wigan in general, losing on six of their seven visits to Springfield Park whilst, in comparison, Latics have struggled in Essex, winning just twice in eight visits.

Watch highlights from Latics' last meeting with Southend at the DW Stadium in 2016.

Current Shrimpers Rob Kiernan and Marc-Antoine Fortune have previously played for Latics whilst current players here at Latics Noel Hunt and Christian Walton, have previously plied their trade at Roots Hall.

Match Reports

REPORT: LATICS 3 - 0 SOUTHEND UNITED

14 October 2017

Goals from Michael Jacobs, Nick Powell and Ivan Toney send Latics top of Sky Bet League One.

  • REPORT: Wigan Athletic 3 – 0 Southend United
  • Goals from Michael Jacobs, Nick Powell and Ivan Toney seal the win
  • Latics go top of Sky Bet League One with win over the Shrimpers

Wigan Athletic extended their winning league run to four games this afternoon as they beat Southend United at the DW Stadium.

Michael Jacobs, who missed out at Scunthorpe last weekend through injury, put Latics ahead after just eight minutes when his strike from distance deflected past visiting keeper Mark Oxley.

United were reduced to 10 men on the hour as Jermaine McGlashan was given a straight red card for a poor challenge on Callum Elder.

Nick Powell continued his fine form in front of goal with a second in the 84th minute before substitute Ivan Toney made it three moments later.

Manager Paul Cook made two changes to the side that beat the Iron 2-1 at Glanford Park seven days ago, with Jacobs and captain Samy Morsy returning.

Latics started brightly and were a threat down the right through Nathan Byrne, as he cut infield and saw an effort tipped over the bar by Oxley.

Jacobs had better luck soon after, though, as he shot from long range and beat Oxley via a deflection for his fourth goal of the campaign.

Powell then saw his volley from the edge of the box go over, while at the other end Theo Robinson burst down the left but shot off target.

Byrne was denied once again by Oxley later in the half after wonderful run, before Dru Yearwood wasted a good opportunity for Phil Brown’s men as Latics went into the interval ahead.

Oxley was called upon again at the start of the second period when Jacobs rode a couple of challenges in the box, only for the keeper to rush off his line to deny him from a tight angle.

Chey Dunkley then went close with a header from Max Power’s corner, while Jacobs was in the thick of the action again, this time forcing Oxley to hold well.

McGlashan was given his marching orders by the referee on the hour mark for a nasty tackle on left back Elder.

Powell doubled the advantage in the 84th minute when he latched on to substitute Roberts’ through ball and rounded Oxley to score.

The lead was extended four minutes later when Toney made no mistake from close range to ensure all three points for Latics.

Latics: Jones; Byrne, Burn, Dunkley, Elder; Morsy, Power; Massey, Powell (Hunt 89), Jacobs (Roberts 77); Grigg (Toney 63).

Subs: Sarkic, Perkins, Bruce, Thomas.

Southend United: Oxley, Wordsworth, Timlin, Yearwood (Fortune 71), McGlashan, Leonard, Demetriou, Robinson (McLaughlin 57), Wright, White, Ranger (Cox 79)

Subs: Bishop, Hendrie, Matsuzaka, Bwomono.
