Wigan’s prospect: Huddersfield Town’s win pushes Balogun out of relegation

first_imgLeon Balogun’s Wigan have moved clear of the English Championship relegation zone following Saturday’s 2-0 triumph at Huddersfield Town. Brighton have assured Balogun of his place A goal in each half by Jamal Lowe and Anthony Pilkington were all the Latics needed to secure maximum points at stake in West Yorkshire. Balogun – who is on loan from Premier League outfit Brighton and Hove Albion was not listed for the clash but that did no harm to Paul Cook’s side. Wigan started the game on a bright note and they carved out the encounter’s first opportunity when Nathan Byrne’s cross for Kieffer Moore fell to on-loan Everton midfielder Kieran Dowell who could not pull the trigger. The visitors’ persistence at goal paid off in the 26th minute with Moore’s cross slotted past the goal line by Lowe – his fourth of the season. Huddersfield seldom threatened however, their first chance in the 33rd minute through Juninho Bacuna’s free-kick drew an impressive save from goalkeeper David Marshall. Three minutes into the second half, Pilkington doubled the lead after profiting from Lowe’s assist. And for the remaining part of the game, no goal was recorded as Cook’s men who have now won their last three games. Loading… DR Congo forward Elias Kachunga replaced Lewis O’Brien on the hour mark for Huddersfield Town. The game was the 28-year-old’s 31st of the season with two goals to his credit. Benin Republic international Steve Mounie and Uganda’s Herbert Bockhorn were not listed for the encounter at the Kirklees Stadium. Captain Sam Morsy was on parade from start to finish for the Latics, with Cote d’Ivoire’s Cedric Kipre not available for the match as well as Nigeria’s Balogun. The Super Eagles defender struggled for game time since teaming up with the Seagulls in 2018 from German Bundesliga club Mainz 05, featuring in only 12 games across all competitions.
