Match Previews


21 April 2017

Cardiff City travel to Lancashire to take on Wigan Athletic this Saturday 22nd April (KO 3pm).


As they prepare for their penultimate away match of the season, the Bluebirds will be looking to build on Easter Monday’s excellent home victory over Nottingham Forest.

The Latics go into the match with relegation worries, currently occupying twenty-third place in the Championship table, five points off safety. However, Graham Barrow’s men have recorded two wins in their last three league games.
The first of these was against already-relegated Rotherham United and it came in dramatic circumstances as Nick Powell struck seven minutes into stoppage time to clinch a 3-2 victory. They then recorded another 3-2 victory in their next game, this time over Barnsley.
Last time out, the Latics lost 1-0 to Brighton & Hove Albion at the Amex. Glenn Murray and Solly March got the goals for the Seagulls and although Powell pulled a goal back with five minutes to go, Brighton got the result that eventually secured their promotion to the Premier League.
In a bid to boost their survival chances, Wigan used the January transfer window to bring in reinforcements. These included the loan signings of ‘keeper Matt Gilks and defender Alex Bruce from Rangers and Hull City respectively as well as securing the services of former Manchester United winger Gabriel Obertan on a free transfer.

Don Cowie joined the Bluebirds from Watford at the beginning of the 2011/12 season. The hard-working Scottish midfielder figured heavily in the team for the next two seasons, scoring a penalty in the 2012 League Cup Final shootout against Liverpool and winning promotion to the Premier League a year later.
Cowie signed for the Latics in 2014 and made nearly forty appearances before returning to Scotland in 2016 to join Hearts. Cowie was recently back at Cardiff City Stadium, taking part in the Benefit Match held for Kevin McNaughton - himself also a former Latic.
Many players have represented both the Bluebirds and the Latics in recent years and these include Kim Bo Kyung, Jason Koumas, Nicky Maynard and Andrew Taylor

The Bluebirds faced Wigan at the DW Stadium on 24th February 2015 and managed to secure an important away win.
City began the match quickly and always looked the more likely team to score. Around the twenty-minute mark Kenwyne Jones picked out midfielder Aron Gunnarsson who burst past three Latics defenders before calmly placing his shot past ‘keeper Ali Al Habsi.
The home side did create some chances in the second half, and had a goal ruled out for offside when substitute Martyn Waghorn turned home a cross from Emmerson Boyce. The Bluebirds defended well for the remainder of the game to secure a hard fought away victory.

Match Reports


22 April 2017


Cardiff City battled to a goalless draw away to Wigan Athletic, as Mark Harris and Ibrahim Meite made their full City debuts at the DW Stadium.

Mark Harris was named in Neil Warnock’s line-up in Lancashire, with five changes from the Bluebirds’ Easter Monday win over Nottingham Forest.

Wigan began on the front foot in front of their home fans as they battled to preserve some hope of Sky Bet Championship survival.

City ‘keeper Ben Amos dealt well with everything that was thrown at him in the first half, as the Latics racked up a number of corners.

Craig Morgan headed wide from one such corner in a first half devoid of clear goal-scoring opportunities. That was until Craig Noone broke through on the stroke of half-time, before lashing an effort just wide of Matt Gilks’ goal.

In the second-half, the game developed into a more open affair as Wigan turned to Nick Powell and Ryan Colclough in a bid to secure a much-needed victory.

Bruno Manga and Aron Gunnarsson seemed to be getting in the way of every Latics’ shot though, as City’s last-ditch defending kept them at bay on several occasions.

Gunnarsson and Manga then combined at the other end of the pitch as the Iceland skipper glanced a header towards goal, which his teammate almost connected with at the far post.

The 729-strong travelling contingent of Bluebirds also had the chance to see young striker Ibrahim Meite introduced to the action late on. But they were to travel back to South Wales with just a point, as City secured an away draw that all but relegated Wigan Athletic to the third tier.
