Adam ends Wi­gan woe

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO RESULTS - By Jamie Holt

ADAM For­shaw says he’s glad to put his tor­rid time at Wi­gan to bed af­ter swap­ping a rel­e­ga­tion battle for a pro­mo­tion push with Mid­dles­brough.

The 23-year-old joined the Lat­ics in the sum­mer from Brent­ford to link up with old Bees boss Uwe Rosler.

How­ever, the Ger­man was sacked in Novem­ber and For­shaw’s form suf­fered.


But the mid­fielder has been given a route out of Lan­cashire with Cham­pi­onship high-fly­ers Boro and in­tends to take his chance this time round.

“I loved my two years at Brent­ford. We got pro­moted and when I found out that Wi­gan wanted me, I was over the moon,” said For­shaw. “I be­lieved it was go­ing to be a great move, some­thing that would be good for my ca­reer.

“Un­for­tu­nately, it proved not to be. It was a tough five or six months and, like I said, when this chance arose I grabbed it with both hands.

“We were hav­ing a bad time on the pitch. There were some great play­ers there and a lot of peo­ple say they can’t un­der­stand why they are in that po­si­tion. It’s hard to put your fin­ger on it.

“But I’m now a Mid­dles- brough player and I’m rel­ish­ing the chal­lenge here.

“The style of play is re­ally good. It’s a strong squad and I have just got to try my hard­est to con­trib­ute when I am needed.”

Boro fans hop­ing that For­shaw is joined by new ad­di­tions be­fore the trans­fer win­dow closes at 11pm on Mon­day are likely to be dis­ap­pointed, boss Ai­tor Karanka has con­firmed.

How­ever, the River­side faith­ful will be en­cour­aged to hear Karanka is un­der no pres­sure to sell any of his top per­form­ers.

“The only po­si­tion where we were work­ing to bring some­one in was in mid­field and Adam is here so at the mo­ment ev­ery­thing is okay,” said Karanka.

“Al­ways, the trans­fer win­dow can have sur­prises but I don't ex­pect any­thing.”
