Americans Abroad Midweek Preview: Robinson, Boyd, and more

Wigan Athletic suffered a first league loss since February over the weekend and will look to rebound against QPR this week.

The Latics, who went into administration last week, will need to pick up as many points possible to avoid relegation to League One. Antonee Robinson has starred for Paul Cook’s side, going the full distance in three of the club’s four matches back in action.

Robinson has been linked to AC Milan, West Bromwich Albion, and West Ham United since the start of 2020 and has also overcome an irregular heart rhythm issue to retain his starting spot. The 22-year-old left back has been named in the EFL Championship Team of the Week twice in the past three weeks and will look to help Wigan to a bounce-back result at home on Wednesday.

Elsewhere, Tyler Boyd will look to jump back into Besiktas’ starting lineup on Thursday after missing Monday’s league defeat. Tim Ream and Fulham face Nottingham Forest in a top-five EFL Championship showdown. Geoff Cameron will be in action against Antonee Robinson and Wigan Athletic while Matt Miazga concludes his three-match suspension this week.
