Wigan Athletic got back to winning ways last night with a 2-1 win over Hull City at the DW Stadium.
The Tigers went into the game looking for back-to-back wins after beating Ipswich Town on Saturday but fell short against the Latics.
Goals from Sam Morsy and Josh Windass, who is the son of Hull City legend and club ambassador Dean, were enough to seal all three points for Paul Cook’s side. Jarrod Bowen pulled one back for Hull just before half time but his side could not find an equaliser in the second half and rarely tested Wigan goalkeeper Christian Walton.
Hull face another away trip on Saturday to face fellow strugglers Reading and Adkins will be hoping to get one over his former employers. The Tigers’ defence has been frail this season but going forward they can still score goals which is one positive for their fans. Adkins needs to tighten up his backline or it will be another tough campaign for his side.
Last night was a disappointment for Hull as they were not able to pick up anything after such an important win against Ipswich Town. They now lie 17th in the Championship table and two points above the relegation zone. Here is how their fans reacted to losing to Wigan-
Quite why he made 5 changes to a winning team. …. I’ll never know #hcafc

Lifeless stuff from #hcafc at Wigan – an average side there for the taking but City didn’t look overly bothered about doing anything about it

I think we’ve been beaten by the better team, they weren’t that much better, but still good enough to beat us. The fact that a newly promoted team are better than a team who’s wages are allegedly in the top 10 in this league speaks wonders though. #hcafc

Never looked like scoring in that last ten minutes.Hitting it long and hoping versus a team who’ve just emerged from the pit of division three was always doomed to failure. #hcafc
