Wigan Athletic 2-2 Aston Villa: Match Review

DW-Stadium

Wigan’s eight-year stay in the Premier League ended with a 2-2 draw against Aston Villa at the DW Stadium.

Roberto Martinez post-match…“I will have a full week to sit down with the chairman to talk about things. Whatever happens I think Wigan has a bright future. It’s a day of mixed feelings but the fans understand the magnitude of winning the FA Cup. The first team to win it and get relegated shows you how difficult it is to win the FA Cup. 

Paul Lambert post-match…“It’s been a hard season but I’ve loved it. It’s a huge pressure and we are in transition at the moment. The last four or five months we have been terrific which bodes well for the future. It’s an exciting time and you can see the crowd are right behind us.

Man of the Match…Gabriel Agbonlahor: Created the first goal for Bent and was Villa’s primary attacking threat. Didn’t cap off a fine season with a goal but has firmly established himself as key figure for Villa.

Flop of the Match…Jordi Gomez: Filtered in and out of the game without making much impact. Lasted 69 minutes before he was replaced but should play a big part for Wigan in the Championship next season.
