Couldn’t make it to this game, unfortunately — something about trains being unreliable — but thanks to the wonders of technology I was able to listen to a (rather biased, but what else would you expect?) Wigan Athletic World broadcast via the official website.
I do wish I could have been there, as all accounts seem to report a Latics side performing more like Manchester United than the Colchester United we’ve been used to of late. Well, maybe that was a bit uncalled for, but things are definitely clicking into place for Roberto Martinez’s side now.
Coupled with a below-par Preston performance, it turned out to be something of a rout as Rodders, Browny and N’Zogbia all found their way onto the scoresheet. There was also a goal for new boy Jason Scotland, which was met with cheers from the 2000-strong Latics travelling support.Away kit, Friendlies, Pre-season, Preston, Report, Tango
