Aston Villa made the trip to the DW Stadium earlier this afternoon to face Wigan Athletic and things didn’t really go to plan for us.

Head coach Dean Smith’s side were looking to make up some lost ground in the promotion battles given our recent draws, but it was a truly pathetic performance. The hosts had a 1-0 advantage at the halftime break and we simply had no answer. The second period saw them extend their lead to 3-0 inside of the final eleven minutes of the game, and that was where the scoring ended.

Four efforts at goal overall and we failed to test their goalkeeper on a single occasion.

There’s not much more to say other than it was uncharacteristically bad based on what we’ve seen under Smith so far, so plenty of fans will be hoping it was just one of those days given the utter lack of creativity and spark on show.
