Match Preview: Wigan Athletic vs Brentford

Everything you need to know before our visit to The DW

8 November 2019

The Bees try to make it four wins from five before the international break, while Wigan go in search of a first win in four. Here's the information you need before the trip to the North West.

MATCH FACTS

  • Brentford have kept five clean sheets in their last six meetings with Wigan
  • Wigan have won seven of their last 11 home league matches against Brentford (W7 D3 L1)
  • Brentford have never completed a league double over Wigan
  • Brentford are one of the top three teams for most aerial duels won away from home this season
  • Ollie Watkins has contributed six of the 10 goals Brentford have scored away from home this season

THE OPPOSITION

For a first season back in the Championship, 2018-19 saw Wigan largely live up to expectations. They finished 18th in the division, and didn't get very far in either domestic cup competition. Consider their position in England's second tier consolodated.

This term didn't get off to the best start. An opening day win over newly relegated Cardiff City was followed up by four defeats at the end of August, leaving them in the bottom three above Stoke City and Huddersfield.

Similar to last season, they were knocked out of the Carabao Cup in the First Round, this time by The Potters. A run of three wins and three defeats saw the side climb to 18th but that's the highest they've been since October. Two defeats to Derby County and Swansea City were punctuated by a 2-2 draw with Bristol City, meaning The Latics have picked up four points from a possible 15 since the last international break.

THE MANAGER

Paul Cook led The Latics back to the Championship at the first time of asking last season, exactly a year after he lead Portsmouth to the League Two title. Before that, Cook was at the reins of Chesterfield when he also got them out of the fourth tier.

A man with a track record for building winning teams, Cook made nearly 650 league appearances during a 22-year playing career which included two spells with The Latics and stints at Wolverhampton Wanderers, Coventry City, and Burnley.

TEAM NEWS

The Bees continue without Sergi Canos and Nikos Karelis, both missing with long-term knee injuries. Josh Clarke is a doubt for the weekend too. Mads Bech Sorensen and Luka Racic have stepped up their returns from injuries in recent weeks and could feature on Saturday.

Wigan will be without Josh Windass and Lee Evans, while it's expected that Michael Jacobs will return to the side in place of Gavin Massey. Fullback Tom Pearce is also a doubt but has been close to a return since Halloween.

THOMAS FRANK'S PRE-MATCH PRESS CONFERENCE

The boss gives his thoughts on our final match before the November international break, as well as a nomination for Championship Manager of the Month.

LAST MEETING

Neither side could get the crucial breakthrough last season, The Bees travelling home with a point from a 0-0 draw in March 2019.

Match Reports

Match report: Wigan Athletic 0 Brentford 3

Bees take all three points at the DW Stadium

9 November 2019

Brentford made it three away wins from three for the first time since April 2016 as they picked up an impressive 3-0 win over Wigan Athletic at the DW Stadium.

It was a match that Thomas Frank's side dominated throughout as Bryan Mbuemo found the net early on before Kamohelo Mokotjo doubled The Bees' lead with a first time finish in the second half.

The pick of the goals then came from Josh Dasilva who curled an excellent left-footed effort into the top corner from distance to make it 3-0 in a game where both sides were reduced to 10 men in the second half with Cedric Kipre and Julian Jeanvier given their marching orders.

Head Coach Thomas Frank made one enforced change to the side that began the narrow defeat to Huddersfield last weekend as Said Benrahma missed out with a slight hamstring injury, and Joel Valencia stepped into his place at the DW Stadium.

The game was just four minutes old when The Bees took the lead through Mbuemo when a corner was whipped in for Christian Norgaard to head unchallenged at goal, but his effort was straight at David Marshall. Luckily for Brentford, the Frenchman was on hand to turn the ball home from close range before the home side could clear their lines.

The Bees looked dangerous in the early stages as Ollie Watkins won the ball high up field before driving into the Wigan area and teeing up Valencia, but his low effort deflected just wide of goal as Wigan charged down the space.

With Brentford dominating much of the possession in the opening 20 minutes, it took until the 25th minute for the home side to register their first real chance. Wigan intercepted a loose  Mokotjo pass before the ball fell to Kieffer Moore on the edge of the box, but his low effort nestled just wide of David Raya’s goal.

The hosts then began to gain a bit more of a foothold in the game which became more even as the half wore on. They almost drew level when the ball found Jamal Lowe, who attempted to lift the ball over Raya before the acrobatics of Pontus Jansson saw him clear with the help of the frame of the goal, all the time unaware that Lowe was also adjudged to have been offside in the build-up. That would be the last action of the first 45 minutes as The Bees took a narrow advantage into half-time.

Michael Jacobs would have the second period’s first attempt when Wigan looked to break down the left before the ball was fed inside to the midfielder before he sent a low effort goalwards which Raya was equal to down to his right on 49 minutes.

Valencia would then go up the other end shortly after he worked it well with Watkins before being found in space just inside the Wigan area, but unfortunately for The Bees, he was unable to keep his right-footed effort on target as he shot wide.

The Bees would then double their lead in a well worked move in the 70th minute as Norgaard worked it from right to left to find Dasilva before he dribbled inside the area and crossed dangerously. The Wigan defence were unable to clear convincingly as the ball fell for Mokotjo centrally, who fired home first time to double Brentford’s advantage.

It would get worse for the home side just three minutes after The Bees’ second as they were reduced to 10 men when Cedric Kipre picked up a second yellow card for a foul on the edge of the box, and Brentford made their one man advantage count as they looked after the ball well to frustrate their opponents.

The Bees further enhanced their lead in the 83rd minute and they did so in style. With Henrik Dalsgaard and then Mokotjo urged to shoot from range, they opted to shift the ball to Dasilva in space before he curled an exquisite curled effort into the top corner to make it 3-0.

As the match reached the 90 minute mark there was a significant stoppage in play as Joe Gelhardt was stretchered off after picking up an injury whilst challenging for the ball in the air.

The Bees would then be reduced to 10 men as well following the aftermath of the injury as Julian Jeanvier was given a straight red card as a scuffle broke out between the two sides before the match drew to a close.
