Time at Club:
Wigan Athletic endured a poor season back in the Championship, employing three different managers - Gary Caldwell, Warren Joyce and Graham Barrow - as they dropped straight back down to League One. Paul Cook has since been appointed on a three-year deal after leaving his post at Portsmouth.
Barrow replaced Warren Joyce, who was only appointed in November following the departure of Gary Caldwell. Caldwell was placed in charge in April 2015, and within a year had successfully overseen a return to the Championship after his troops hoisted the League One title. However, after a below-par start to the 2016/17 season he was given the boot.
Wigan suffered relegation from the Premier League at the end of the 2012/13 season under Roberto Martinez who days earier had memorably led the Latics to FA Cup glory. The club then suffered relegation down to League One, but instantly bounced back in style in 2016.
An unbeaten run of 6 wins versus Plymouth Argyle, Bournemouth, Northampton Town, Oxford United, AFC Wimbledon and AFC Fylde and 4 draws against Peterborough United, Bournemouth, Charlton Athletic and Shrewsbury Town has seen Wigan Athletic produce 23 goals at an average of 2.3 and conceding 5 has also seen them gain a 18 goal difference over this period.
