Cook – Give us time

24th August 2019, 14:22

Wigan Athletic boss Paul Cook says his team deserve more time to improve their form on the road in the Championship.

The Latics, who avoided the drop during the 2018/2019 campaign, made a superb start to the season as they beat Cardiff City 3-2 on home soil.

However, they have now lost four games in a row to move towards the bottom three. Only two points separate them from the relegation zone, and Wigan’s away form will continue to worry their fans.

Cook’s men have now won just one of their last 23 games away from the DW Stadium, but the former Portsmouth coach believes patience is needed in the coming months.

He told Wigan Today: “Every credit to the fans that travelled up to Middlesbrough on Tuesday night. It is great to see that level of support.

“Support is huge for people. We are starting a new season, and I do not want last season’s form, and everything else levelled at this set of players. It is a new set of players. I think with the first two adverse away results, it is easy to look at last year and see the parallels.

“These lads need to be given a little more time to put that right.”

Wigan’s next away trip comes against Queens Park Rangers on Saturday afternoon, before they then face Barnsley on August 31 at home before the international break.
