Warren Joyce has expressed worry over fitness concerns of his injured players.
The injured defenders Reece Burke – on a season long loan from Premier League side West Ham – and Nathan Byrne picked up the knock over the weekend clash. Wigan Athletic lost at home by a lone goal to Derby County and the two late cry-offs were another worry for the coach who only signed both of them this summer.
Wigan Athletic defeated Cardiff City by a lone goal, despite being without a manager.
The victory was the first win away from home after six months. Cardiff seemed to have picked up new boss Neil Warnock but the Lactics remained resolute in attack and defense as they played.
Wolves suffered a painful defeat in the 89th minute in the hands of Wigan who ended the game with a 2-1 victory.
A sucker punch from Will Grigg ensured Wigan rise above the relegation zone. Boss Gary Caldwell left Grigg on the bench, opting to start Adam Le Fondre. It turned out a brilliant move as Le Fondre scored from a Max Power cross.
League One side Bolton Wanderers get an extra boost as they sign Andrew Taylor on a season long loan from Wigan Athletic.
The 30-year old player joined the club from Cardiff back in 2014 but garnered 27 appearances for Wigan in the 2014/15 campaign and played 23 games when he was shipped out on loan to Championship side Reading last term.
Wigan manager Gary Cadwell says that he is hoping to add four or five more players in the summer.
Former Liverpool defender Stephen Warnock is on the move once again and this time around he has joined Wigan Athletic on a one-year contract.
Eric Black believes it’s never easy for a team, which is relegated from the top tier, to come back into it straightaway.
Black believes a lot changes for a team when it goes from the Premiership to the Championship. First of all, it has more number of matches to play and thus, at times, the players can feel they are not having enough gaps between the matches to recover. You would need more physical and mental strength than what you probably needed in top tier.
The 34 year old left-back Stephen Warnock joined Derby County back on January of 2015 and even though it has been only around a little more than a year since he has been performing with the Championship League club, it seems like Warnock is not going to be playing an important role for Derby County on a long term basis as his contract expires in the summer and his contract with the English club is not expected to be extended any further.
It’s been a little over 1 year since Stephen Warnock has joined Derby County and the veteran player is a consistent starter for the English club.
Warnock has recently talked about his experience and how it has been like to join the Championship League club as he said that Derby County has rebuilt his career.
"I had a difficult time at Villa when Gerard Houllier came in. I thought I was playing well at the time but all of a sudden I was left out of the squad and things took a bit of a slump.
+Derby County have been flying high in the Championship and this provides defender Stephen Warnock with a great opportunity to return to the Premier League.
The former Blackburn Rovers defender has not been seen in the top division for the last few years. Regarded as one of the finest attacking left backs, he has found it difficult to find top clubs interested in his services especially after the failed to spell at Liverpool. He came through the ranks at the Merseyside club before joining and playing for the likes of Blackburn Rovers and Aston Villa.
