Wigan men’s 1st team had a wake up call this weekend with a 3 – 3 draw against Didsbury 2nd team. The first half was close between the two teams with chances at either end. It was Wigan who took the lead with a good move from the midfield leading to a great finish from the Wigan striker. With chances at both ends Wigan extended their lead a good finish at the back post. Didsbury created more chances after the Wigan goal and scored just before half time.
Wigan needed to i…mprove in the second half if they wanted the 3 points and went the attack creating a number of good opportunities. Good saves from the Didsbury goalkeeper and clearances off the line stopped Wigan extending the lead further. Eventually Wigan got what they deserved with another good finish in the bottom left corner from the hard work in midfield.
After the 3rd goal Wigan dropped off and for 20 mins of the second half was all Didsbury. Didsbury rightfully deserved to score a second and eventually a 3rd with only a minute left. This game could have got away from Wigan in the 20 mins after their 3rd goal if it wasn’t for an outstanding performance from Paul Parr in goal and clearances off the line from the Wigan defence.
A lot to improve on for the next game but a draw was not a bad result.
Wigan goals: Rob U x2 and Gareth S
