Wigan Athletic is struggling in the bottom section of the English League Championship and Stephen Warnock wanted to see his team start picking themselves up with a triumph over against their rivals Derby County.
Both sides locked horns on December 31st of 2016 and the match resulted in a goal-less draw with each team having to settle with 1 point. This is not the result that Stephen Warnock and the rest of his teammates wanted to see but considering the fact that Derby County was controlling the match from start till the end and had over 60% of possession, being able to secure a draw is a good result for Wigan Athletic, as they need all of the points they can get in order to start climbing spots and escape the relegation zone.
Before Wigan Athletic had faced off with Derby County, Stephen Warnock spoke his mind about what is going on with his team and why they have been sustaining so much negative results and the 35 year old defender said:
“We’ve got to show a mental toughness now, resilience and a togetherness, to bounce back. It’s just difficult to put your finger on exactly what it is that’s going wrong at the moment. We know we need to lift ourselves first and foremost. We need to work out how to do that, and we have to do that as a squad.”
After having played 25 English League Championship matches, Wigan Athletic is currently positioned at the 23rd spot with only 19 points collected so far and only being able to snatch 4 triumphs from those games.
One of the problems that Wigan Athletic has been experiencing in this season and their lack of victories can be attributed to the right-back position but the return of Donervon Daniels should help solve this issue.
