Latics’ ace stakes his claim for fans’ player of the month

Victor Moses this weekend had Wigan walking on water, not treading it, as his 70th minute winner against West Brom took the Latics out of the relegation mire and within five points of fifth placed Bolton. The side are also five clear of both West Ham and Wolves at the bottom of the table.

The former Crystal Palace ace was the star performer (despite only coming on as a substitute at the start of the second half) on a day which many hope could be the turning point in the Latics’ season.

His willing running, excellent finishing and incisive passing proved the difference, and he surely feels a starting place is not far away.

Moses, a headline writer’s dream, played a commanding role in a match which could have got caught up amongst the bulrushes, and in parting the red sea of Baggies’ defenders to score his well-deserved winner, he also put a great, beaming smile on the face of Roberto Martinez and on those of the supporters.

Indeed, in the mass exodus of fans leaving the DW after the final whistle, there was confident talk. Which makes a welcome change after some of the disastrous home matches earlier in the season.

Wigan's club motto is ‘Progress with Unity’, and this weekend there was definite progress both in terms of points and performance.

The team also looked far more united on the pitch too, and what might have been a distinctly tricky fixture against a West Brom side who've taken points from both Manchester United and Arsenal on the road this season, was brushed aside with style.
