Wigan Athletic picked up their first league win since mid-October on New Years Day and Antonee Robinson continued to start for the Latics.
Robinson started and played 90 minutes for Paul Cook’s side as Wigan defeated Birmingham City 3-2 away from home. The 22-year-old left back won eight of his 16 duels on Wednesday, while making two interceptions and successfully completing three dribbles. Despite almost seeing a two-goal lead evaporate at St. Andrews, Wigan held on to inch closer to safety in the EFL Championship table. Robinson now has 26 appearances under his belt this season and face a tough test this weekend in the form of Leicester City in the FA Cup.
