Time at Club:
Wigan Athletic have appointed their third manager of the season in Graham Barrow who replaced the sacked Warren Joyce in March 2017.
Joyce, who was only appointed in November, replaced Gary Caldwell in the Championship dugout, and was tasked with keeping the Latics in the Championship, however 24 matches later he was sent packing.
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.
A mixed set of recent results has seen Wigan Athletic collect wins versus Birmingham City and Wolverhampton Wanderers while suffering adverse results at Aston Villa, Bristol City, Blackburn Rovers, Queens Park Rangers and Fulham. Draws against Nottingham Forest, Preston North End and Norwich City has seen them show mid-table form at best.
