Since winning the 2017/18 League One title, Wigan Athletic have won just two of their last 29 away games in the Championship.
Paul Cook will be hugely frustrated about his sides 1-0 defeat at Derby County last night, after his side wasted a number of opportunities to win the game.
Jamal Lowe and Kieffer Moore both missed golden chances to give the Latics the lead in the second half, which were punished when Graeme Shinnie scored an injury time winner for the Rams.
The performance will please the manager and give him confidence heading to Ashton Gate on Sunday, however he must be worried about the players’ mentality in latter stages of away matches.
The Latics have conceded a number of late goals, and it has become somewhat inevitable they will concede.
Wigan move on and prepare for a tough test against Lee Johnson’s Bristol City on Sunday. The Robins scored a last minute winner against Charlton Athletic last night, seeing them move up to fourth in the Championship table.

Can’t believe we’ve lost that. Absolutely gutted.

To be fair, it sounded like their 'keeper had a cracker. The away win will come soon enough if we keep up the performance..

Can’t understand changing the team from Sunday bar Byrne being suspended, would rather him play windass in place of Jacobs, doesn’t use our subs to effect a game like they should 😒

Wrong subs from Cook killed any go forward we had. I like Naismith and Garner works hard but that game wasn’t for either of them when we had them on the rack.
