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.
Wigan Athletic have reaped 5 wins in the last 10 games, beating Sheffield Wednesday, Doncaster Rovers, Fleetwood Town, Oxford United & Rochdale. 3 draws against AFC Wimbledon, Bristol Rovers & Rotherham United and defeats to Rotherham United & Aston Villa has seen them score 18 at an average of 1.8 goals per game while shipping 11.
