Question of the Week
Do you support Cleethorpes Town?
24/08 Wigan Part 2
By: Tony Butcher
WIGAN upped their game a little after this, settling back to their previous tempo, their neat possession football, your basic upper mid-table solidly organised team. We know a decent, though not frightening, second division team when we see it.
Grimsby Town 1 Wigan Athletic 0
In the last minute of the half Town made grown men cry with a quite marvellous passage of play. From a throw in Pinault and Gordon toyed with Wiganites, playing not one but two first touch tip and taps. The piggies in the middle went all the way home as Gordon dimpled the ball up to Parkinson on the edge of the area. Parky flicked the ball on for Reddy, who spun past his marker and was free inside the area. Reddy waited for a defender, rolled past him and surged on towards goal. Walsh came out and Reddy tried to flick the ball with the outside of his right boot in to the near post. The ball hit the side netting as the unmarked Sestanovich bellowed in the centre.
The linesman flagged for a free kick against Ramsden underneath the Police Box. Ramsden made it plain that he considered the decision to be faulty. The referee blew his whistle and beckoned mulletboy towards him. Ramsden ignored the ref, turned his back and wandered off. The referee made another attempt to chastise, was ignored again, then gave up. I canâ€™t find fault in that, can you?
Half time: Grimsby Town 1 Wigan Athletic 0
Half time, all is well with the world. We pass, we move, we score.
