MATCH PREVIEW: WIGAN ATHLETIC V IPSWICH TOWN

22 February 2019

Latics return to Sky Bet Championship action, aiming to make it four games unbeaten when Ipswich Town visit the DW Stadium this Saturday.

  • Sky Bet Championship: Wigan Athletic v Ipswich Town.
  • Latics host Paul Lambert's Tractor Boys in a bid to extend the current unbeaten run to four matches.
  • A clean bill of health for Paul Cook's squad, with Danny Fox returning.

KICK-OFF 3.00PM

Latics arrived back on home soil from a mid-season training trip to Dubai earlier this week, preparing to host Ipswich Town at the DW Stadium in the latest Sky Bet Championship fixture.

A re-arranged match against Derby County allowed Latics the time to recover and continue to build in the Middle-East heat, travelling out with a three-game unbeaten run in tact thanks to a 0-0 draw against Stoke City on the Wednesday night.

With Latics not featuring in last weekend's action, Paul Cook's side are now 20th on 34 points, five clear of the relegation zone with a game in hand.

Paul Lambert, who is banned from the touchline following an incident in the East Anglia derby against Norwich City, will be hoping his Ipswich side can close the gap on Bolton Wanderers to just three points, with the Tractor Boys bottom of the Championship table on 20 points.

A spirited and late 1-1 draw at home to Stoke will help boost Ipswich's cause after former Latics loanee Will Keane cancelled out former Latics winger James McClean's opener for the Potters last Saturday.

EARLY TEAM NEWS

WIGAN ATHLETIC

Latics arrive back home at the DW Stadium with a clean bill of health following the warm-weather training trip to Dubai last weekend, with Danny Fox now back available after sitting out the Stoke City match and full training due to the concussion he suffered in Latics' 1-1 draw away at Rotherham United.

A full squad to choose from leaves Paul Cook with a positive selection headache, with one man in particular determined to keep hold of a starting place as Michael Jacobs aims to make his 150th appearance for Latics in all competitions.

IPSWICH TOWN

Paul Lambert's touchline ban has added to Ipswich's recent woes, with a number of first team players out with long term injuries.

Former Latics midfielder Emyr Huws (knee), Tom Adeyemi (achilles), Grant Ward (ACL), Freddie Sears (ACL) and Jack Lankester (back) are all on the sidelines.

Lambert is hopeful of returns for James Collins (hamstring) and captain Luke Chambers (foot), with Collins missing the last four matches and Chambers out of the previous two.

Illness struck the Ipswich camp recently, with Flynn Downes missing recently but now doing better, whilst Cole Skuse made the bench last weekend against Stoke City after recovering from the same virus.

Ellis Harrison is also being monitored following a hamstring complaint.

Substitute Joe Garner earned Latics another important point in the Sky Bet Championship as Latics left it late against Ipswich Town at the DW Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Garner’s goal came after a sustained spell of pressure from Paul Cook’s side in which time they no doubt created enough chances to win the game.

In equal measure, though, there was no doubting the sense of relief as Garner fired home at close range after 10 man Ipswich had led for the majority of the game through former Latic Will Keane’s penalty, which came after Jonas Knudsen had been sent off for Paul Lambert’s side.

Latics made two changes to their starting XI from the last Sky Bet Championship outing against Stoke City, with Danny Fox and Lee Evans into the team in place of Cedric Kipre and Nathan Byrne.

Cook’s side started brightly with an early Michael Jacobs cross inside the first minute headed over by Anthony Pilkington at the back post.

However, the visitors bounced back with early openings of their own as a James Bree cross was headed wide by Jon Nolan before Jamie Jones had to tip a Keane shot from the edge of the area around his post.

Ipswich’s best chance prior to their opener fell to Keane at the back post following a flick on from a corner but he couldn’t adjust his body to test Jones.

Jacobs curled over after a good run on the left from Naismith before the game sparked into life on 24 minutes when Leon Clarke went in behind the Ipswich defence and was pulled back by Knudsen, with referee Lee Probert adjudging the defender to have denied a clear goal-scoring opportunity.

However, instead of getting into the ascendency, Latics fell behind when Colin Quaner fell under the challenge of Chey Dunkley in the penalty area, with Probert deciding the contact was significant enough to award a spot-kick. Jamie Jones almost saved Keane’s effort from the spot, but there was enough power from the former Latic to see the ball creep home.

As the first-half wore on, deliveries into the Ipswich area were returning little, albeit Josh Windass headed off target just before the break from a Reece James cross.

The second-half started into a similar pattern to the way the first ended as Latics got the ball into wide areas and crossed for Clarke and the players around him, with Pilkington heading off target once more following a Naismith cross on 51 minutes.

A couple of minutes later, a fine Naismith delivery looked destined to be nodded home by one of Clarke or Windass, though neither one of the attacking pair could add a clinical finish.

Alan Judge had a couple of rare second-half chances for the visitors as the hour mark approached before Cook introduced Nick Powell and Callum McManaman from the bench in search of an equaliser.

And just prior to that change, Latics had almost forced said equaliser as a quick break from Windass on the right resulted in a delivery to the back post to Clarke who couldn’t quite fire home when stretching.

Eight minutes later, Clarke had another opportunity as Jacobs did well on the left before crossing to the near post for the Sheffield United loanee, who couldn’t divert on target.

James had a free-kick saved from 25 yards and Windass had an effort blocked as the game entered the final 20 minutes with Latics in complete control but lacking the decisive touch.

Six minutes from the end, Cook’s side were denied by a superb Bartosz Bialkowski save as Powell headed a James cross towards the top corner.

However, the leveller came when a fine cross from James was finished with great composure by Garner against his former club.

With six minutes added on, the DW Stadium got behind their players in search of a winner and Jacobs – on his 150th Latics appearance – almost grabbed it but his powerful 25-yard shot was saved by Bialkowski.

Latics: Jones, James, Dunkley (Powell 60), Fox, Naismith, Morsy (Capt), Evans, Pilkington (McManaman 61), Windass (Garner 80), Jacobs, Clarke
Subs: Walton, Gibson, Massey, Kipre.
