Wigan have appointed assistant boss Chris Hutchings as the club´s new manager after Paul Jewell resigned - less than 24 hours after leading the club to Premiership safety.

For Hutchings, who takes over following Wigan´s status-preserving 2-1 win over Sheffield United, it is a case of history repeating itself after he took over the reins at Bradford from Jewell in similar circumstances in 2000.

Jewell, who has been linked with a move to Manchester City if the Eastlands board lose patience with current boss Stuart Pearce, stepped down from his role at the JJB Stadium despite celebrating wildly with chairman Dave Whelan on Sunday after David Unsworth´s penalty kept the Latics up at the expense of their opponents.
