Opposition view

Wigan manager Warren Joyce has spoken ahead of Wednesday’s visit to the DW Stadium and expects a tough game against the Owls. 

The Latics are vying to move out of the bottom three and head into the game on the back of a 4-0 defeat to Manchester United in the FA Cup but prior to that, two league victories over Brentford and Burton.

Joyce said: “It’s going to be a really tough game for us. 

“But the players we have all worked their socks off for this football club and they’ve got to keep doing that. 

“The lads that have been playing recently have done a great job for the club. 

“They’ve shown a good tactical understanding and we’ve played some really good football against good sides. 

“I’ve got players chomping at the bit for a chance and training was very good on Wednesday.”

The Latics made eight new signings on transfer deadline day and Joyce is happy with the additions to his side. 

He added: “It was a hectic day on Tuesday.

“We’ve signed a mixture of players really, some are for now, some are here to develop for the future, so we’ve got a nice blend and it’s all about trying to rebuild the club.

“We’ve got to make sure we eradicate mistakes during the second half of the season because that’s the bit that’s killed us during the period where we lost games.”
