TEAM NEWS: Wigan v Burnley

KEITH Treacy starts his second game of the month, coming into the side to face Wigan Athletic in favour of Michael Kightly.

The on-loan Stoke City winger has dropped to the bench as Burnley bid to respond to the Boxing Day defeat at Middlesbrough.

It is the only change to Sean Dyche's line-up, with Ben Mee struggling to shake off the thigh injury which forced his absence in the Riverside.

As such, Danny Lafferty retains his place at left back.

Former Burnley midfielder Chris McCann starts for Wigan, who drew 0-0 at home to Birmingham City on Boxing Day.

WIGAN: Ali Al Habsi, Stephen Crainey, Chris McCann, Jordi Gomez, James McArthur, Emmerson Boyce, Nick Powell, Ivan Ramis, James Perch, Leon Barnett, Marc-Antoine Fortune.

Subs: Lee Nicholls, Grant Holt, James McClean, Callum McManaman, Roger Espinoza, Nouha Dicko, Rob Kiernan.

BURNLEY: Tom Heaton; Kieran Trippier, Michael Duff, Jason Shackell, Danny Lafferty; Keith Treacy, Dean Marney, David Jones, Scott Arfield; Sam Vokes, Danny Ings.

Subs: Alex Cisak, Junior Stanislas, David Edgar, Michael Kightly, Brian Stock, Kevin Long, Steven Hewitt.

That's it flat t1ts, you try and divert the attention away from the real story..the home humiliation you've suffered today. But don't worry it can't get much worse......oh hang on it can, in 3 days time when Rhodes can finally do one out of the Dumpwood door.

Surprised, thought you'd be more concerned that the teams who had fewer points than you are catching you up, thanks to Burnley!
Yes we didn't have a great game today, but not lost too much ground. A couple of key signings should see us right.

Good result today against a side that was Premiership so recently. Good following too, nearly 5,000. Second on points. Next game at home against Huddersfield. A solid chance of 3 points.

How did Rovers do? Have they overtaken us and are they pressing for a spot in the Playoffs?

Given the squad Wigan have, and that they've only just come down from the Prem, a point doesn't seem a bad result. But the truth is, Wigan played a 5 man midfield, stifling any creative football. The game was a dull affair with few highlights. Despite having the bulk of the possession, Wigan never looked like scoring, Burnley's goalkeeper was never troubled. When Burnley did get past the packed midfield, they caused far more problems for Wigan than they did for us.

Having said all that, it was my first trip to the DW stadium, and whilst the Marquee bar makes for a pleasant place for a pre match pint, the ground itself can only be described (at my diplomatic best!) as "functional".

Funny, if you're on such a good run why have you gone from 5 points clear to in the playoffs? Let your good run continue.

Unlike your stadium a real rat infested dingle dome, dropping points like no tomoz you still top, lmfao see you in march I hope.
And yet we extended our lead over Jordan Rhodes fc by another point.

Looking forward to March actually you sandal wearing inbred, I expect you will be in your normal position of shouting at Burnley fans from behind a police line?

An even 'quiker' (sic) summary; 'So why do you see the piece of sawdust in another believer's eye and not notice the wooden beam in your own eye?'

Truly the domain of the hypocrite, that.
