Wigan Athletic need to get their next managerial appointment spot on

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 05 May 2017, 16:01

A trio of managers tried and failed to keep Wigan Athletic in the Championship during what has been a chaotic campaign back in the second-tier.

Wigan’s fight for survival came to an end last weekend following a 1-0 defeat at Reading, meaning they’ll be joining Rotherham (and one of Birmingham, Blackburn and Nottingham Forest) back in League One next term.

On Sunday the Latics take to the field (at home to Leeds) as a Championship side for the final time, well for at least another season.

Back in October Gary Caldwell, who months earlier had led Wigan up to the second-tier, was sent packing following a run of two wins in 14 matches. Graham Barrow briefly oversaw the first team for a week, before Warren Joyce was lured over from his job in charge of Man Utd reserves.

However, six wins from 24 matches didn’t impress the Wigan hierarchy who gave him the boot after four months, placing Barrow back in the hot seat until the end of the season, with the caretaker unable to keep the club in the division.

Wigan have a huge summer ahead of them, and first things first, they need to find a manager who can repeat the feat of the successful 2015/16 season and orchestrate an instant return to the Championship.

The Next Wigan Athletic Manager Market has constantly been changing throughout the day (Friday), but at the time or writing most of the key contenders for the posts are in work, including the likes of Michael Appleton (Oxford), Nathan Jones (Luton), Darrell Clarke (Bristol Rovers) and former boss Uwe Rosler (Fleetwood), while the unemployed duo of Alan Stubbs and Nigel Adkins also feature.
