The Football League Paper - - ADAM VIRGO -

WI­GAN have en­dured a wretched few years, but a 5-0 win over Colch­ester and an eightgame un­beaten run sug­gest things are fi­nally com­ing good.

For me, the turn­ing point was that dra­matic win over Chester­field at the start of Septem­ber. Two down with ten min­utes to go, they ab­so­lutely blitzed Dean Saun­ders’ side and even­tu­ally won 3-2.

Prior to that, the goals they’d con­ceded were ab­so­lutely am­a­teur. And as an ex-de­fender, Gary Cald­well must have been so frus­trated.

But Gary’s a great prob­lem-solver. When I was with him at Celtic, he was al­ways some­one who stud­ied the game and ex­plained it very, very well. You don’t get all those caps for Scot­land and play in the Cham­pi­ons League with­out an un­der­stand­ing of the game.

The way he’s turned things around proves that and I’m con­vinced he’ll go on to big­ger and bet­ter things.

CLEVER: Gary Cald­well
