Latics return to the DW Stadium this Saturday looking to make it three matches unbeaten at home at the start of the 2018-19 Sky Bet Championship season.

Home comforts will be well greeted by Paul Cook's men following back-to-back away matches at Stoke City and Queens Park Rangers, whilst Paul Warne's Rotherham United arrive at the DW having won their latest league match 1-0 at home to Millwall.

EARLY TEAM NEWS

Speaking to iFollow Latics at the Wigan Athletic Training Centre on Friday morning, Paul Cook confirmed the unfortunate news that Gavin Massey is set for a period on the sidelines after injuring his hamstring at QPR last weekend.

Massey has been a key player for Latics so far this season, producing a stand-out performance in his side's 3-0 win at Stoke City nearly a fortnight ago.

Dan Burn continues to remain on the sidelines and, similarly to Michael Jacobs, the hope is he will be back in action following the international break.

Darron Gibson is continuing his recovery from a groin injury and is edging closer to a return.

Rotherham United made eight changes from Sunday's win over Millwall for their midweek Carabao Cup clash with Everton and further changes are likely for their visit to the DW Stadium.

Only Zak Vyner, Semi Ajayi and Sean Raggett started in both games with Joe Mattock, Marek Rodak, Michael Smith, Will Vaulks and Richard Wood all looking to protect ever-present records for the Millers in the Championship this season with a return to the starting XI.

MATCH REPORT: WIGAN ATHLETIC 1-0 ROTHERHAM UNITED

1 September 2018

Latics seal important win at the DW Stadium this afternoon.

  • Match Report: Wigan Athletic 1-0 Rotherham United.
  • James Vaughan’s second half goal secures the points for Latics.
  • Paul Cook's side next in action at Brentford on Saturday 15th September.

WIGAN ATHLETIC 1

Vaughan 73

ROTHERHAM UNITED 0

Latics made it three home games unbeaten in the Sky Bet Championship this afternoon as James Vaughan's 73rd minute goal proved the difference against Rotherham United. 

The substitute was the quickest to pounce on Marek Rodak’s save to deny Callum McManaman and poke the rebound into an empty net.

Paul Cook made two changes to his side for the visit of the Millers, with Reece James and Callum Connolly starting in place of Nathan Byrne and Gavin Massey.

Chey Dunkley forced visiting keeper Rodak into an early save when he connected well with Lee Evans’ superb free kick to head low at the Slovak.

Antonee Robinson was causing all kinds of problems down the left hand side, and was twice denied in good positions by some last-ditch challenges.

Connolly went close to giving Latics the lead on 20 minutes when he met Josh Windass’ drilled corner only to head into the side netting at the near post.

Windass himself then almost curled a brilliant free kick into the top corner from 25 yards, missing the target by the narrowest of margins on his home debut.

Nick Powell was later challenged in the area but the referee waved away his penalty claims, while Windass dragged a shot wide of the post just before the break.

The visitors threatened at the start of the second period, with Joe Mattock’s header from Ryan Williams’ free kick testing Walton in the home goal.

In reply, Will Grigg sent a fizzing effort past Rodak’s near post, before Cook made a double change on the hour by bringing on McManaman and Vaughan for Powell and Grigg.

The move would pay off for Latics as Vaughan netted his first of the season with just over 15 minutes remaining when he poked the ball home on the rebound after McManaman’s initial shot was saved.

The Millers pressed for an equaliser late on and Walton pulled off an outstanding low save to deny Williams from the edge of the box.

Wigan Athletic: Walton; James, Dunkley, Kipre, Robinson; Morsy (Capt), Evans; Windass (Garner 90), Powell (McManaman 60), Connolly; Grigg (Vaughan 60).

Subs: Jones, Bruce, Byrne, Roberts. 

Rotherham United: Rodak, Vyner, Mattock, Vaulks, Ajayi, Wood (Proctor 77), Taylor (Vassell 59), Manning, Williams, Smith, Raggett (Robertson 19).

Subs: Bilboe, Palmer, Towell, Newell.
