How They RATED; ALBION (4-1-4-1).CARSON...7
Some decent saves from long range.
Played well. Strong and athletic but one defensive lapse ruined his afternoon.
Had the better of Heskey for long periods.
Like Meite, he held Wigan's front men at bay. Was strong and powerful.
One poor header proved costly.
Did a reasonable job in a deeper role. Supported the back line well.
Dynamic. Always willing to take people on or open up chances.
Best game for a while. Created plenty and encouraged movement.
Decent passes but off the pace as second half wore on.
Worked the left side well.
Well-taken goal. Plenty of energy and strength which he channelled well.

P Dowd Dowd is a derivation of an ancient surname which was once common in Ireland but is now quite rare. The name Dowd is an Anglicisation of the original Ui Dubhda, through its more common form O'Dowd. (Staffs): Controlled the game well. A little OTT OTT - Over the top.
Excessive or uncalled for. with Greening booking.
Tony Mowbray's side were clearly well drilled but changes in last minute were futile.
A decent encounter. Albion deserved more.
Nothing new to report
