Many Wigan Athletic fans have reacted to Sam Morsy’s strike against league leaders West Bromwich Albion on Saturday afternoon.
Heading into Saturday’s game, Wigan had the tricky task of taking on Slaven Bilic’s impressive West Brom – but the game did not pan out to be as favourable to the home side as many predicted.
West Brom knew that they needed to get a win at the Hawthorns after seeing Leeds United beat Hull City earlier on Saturday 4-0.
Wigan’s form of late has been impressive and they had just as much to play for, hoping to push themselves away from the relegation zone.
