Hopefully the Reading side that played well at Wolves and Derby will turn up rather than the one that last Tuesday night lost against Leeds.
Wigan have been a bit of a bogey side for us the last couple of years.That being said i still expect us to win this.

Hopefully, I have no idea how poor Wigan are.

We do seem to be better away from home recently though so need to get a better result here today, read that we've failed to score in 5 of our last 7 home games? Got to play 4-4-2 again, don't want to see a more defensive formation against a team below us in the table again.

A win and I think 40 points with 15 games to go should really end any fears of relegation. Would need at most 10 points from those final 15 games.

Typical, if theres one guarantee in life it's that Wigan can beat us. Still two minutes to go in the match but we've created next to nothing in 99 minutes so not expecting much.

Only one or two bad results and we'll be back in the thick of it again, when it was easier to extend out of the way.

Cost of a cup run this? Too many extra games.

Just got back and apart from the first 10 minute we were utter shite.Probably not even that good.2 home games in a row where we have created very little.Clueless long balls to the Pog who was beaten by Maguire every single time.Chalobah was utter shit although he is not a centre back.When Yakubu and Blackman came on we got even worse.Robson-Kanu was our best player by a mile, not saying much though.

At least Clarke didn't come out and take the positives from it.
Speaking brutally honestly to the press, Clarke said, "We deserved to lose. It was rubbish.

"A little bit of me is embarrassed to be coach of a team that plays like that, especially first half. Not a good game, not a good performance and obviously a terrible result.

Parky was at the game and he will be rubbing his hands with glee at the prospect of playing us based on that pathetic showing.

2 tough away games coming up as well although we seem to prefer playing away at the moment.

Reading seen very inconsistent, one week they play like a team that is near the top of the league, the next week they look like relegation fodder.
