CHER­RIES BANDWAGON CRUSHES LAT­ICS

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

BOURNEMOUTH’S mag­i­cal march to­wards the Pre­mier League con­tin­ued with this win over Wi­gan.

The Cher­ries fought off a Wi­gan side who scrapped for their lives in the sec­ond half, which will stand Ed­die Howe’s side in good stead head­ing into their key top of the ta­ble clash against Derby.

And in Cal­lum Wil­son, Bournemouth have a striker that can scare the most for­mi­da­ble of Cham­pi­onship de­fences.

For Wi­gan, los­ing to a side com­pet­ing for the top flight is cer­tainly no dis­grace.

But Malky Mackay’s men are walk­ing a per­ilous tightrope the longer they go with­out string­ing to­gether a se­ries of re­sults.

They have not won at the DW Sta­dium since Au­gust and Mackay has re­cently sold some of his big­ger play­ers, such as Cal­lum McMana­man and Shaun Maloney.

The Lat­ics need to put points on the board sooner rather than later or League One will surely beckon.
