We Cannot Fold At Leeds United – Wigan Athletic Star Steeled For Test


Wigan Athletic midfielder Lee Evans has stressed the Latics must build on their impressive draw against leaders Norwich City, insisting they cannot throw away the momentum against Leeds United on Good Friday.

Paul Cook’s men held league leaders Norwich to a 1-1 draw at the DW Stadium on Sunday to keep their hopes of avoiding relegation from the Championship alive with just four games remaining.

Reece James gave the hosts a lead just before half-time, when he successfully converted a penalty from the spot, after Ben Godfrey had controversially been adjudged to have handled the ball.

However, Teemu Pukki stretched the Canaries’ unbeaten run to 10 games, when he salvaged a point for them with a late equaliser in the 81st minute.

Despite being unable to secure maximum points on Sunday, the performance will have boosted the Latics’ confidence as they now prepare for the away game at Leeds.

And ahead of their trip to west Yorkshire, Evans has insisted Wigan must not throw away the momentum from the draw against Norwich by turning up at Elland Road and folding.  

"We have to translate our home performances into the remaining two away games, it's been far too long”, Evans told the club’s official website.

"We can't press teams and play like this against Norwich and then turn up at Leeds and just fold."

Wigan currently sit just two points above the relegation zone in the Championship with 42 points from the same amount of games so far this season.
