When you look at it this way Wigan couldn’t really have done a lot worse. Curiously, the fixtures computer donated them three games against the division’s promoted clubs to open up and Wigan drove home that advantage to the tune of five whole points. But here they are, six games later, still sitting on those five points. Put another way, they’ve lost seven matches in a row (one of which was in the league cup, just like us). They haven’t been batterings or anything, but it’s a terrible run.
The question is: “can Fulham keep that run going?”
History would suggest not – we tend to draw up there – but honestly, this must the moment when Fulham make a bit more “6-0 v QPR” style noise. Wigan are a bad team and have been for years; we need to make this one count.
