‘Just what we needed’ – Plenty of Wigan Athletic fans react as transfer goes through



With the January transfer window whirring into life over the last week, it looks set to be potentially the most important month of the season so far. 

Just eight points separate the entire top six in the Championship table whilst there are also eight between 23rd place and 18th.

One side who are currently in the latter of the two scenarios are Wigan Athletic, creeping ominously towards the drop zone after an impressive promotion from League One last season.

They were given a sizeable boost on Thursday, however, when it was revealed that Cardiff City attacker Anthony Pilkington had signed on an 18-month deal.

A fan favourite with the South Wales club, the 30-year-old made over 110 appearances, scoring 23 goals and assisting eight more.

With the Latics losing five or their last six matches they certainly needed to do something in order to address the slide and this seems like a good start.

Here is how the fans reacted to the news…
