Scotland scores and assists in first pre-season match
« on: July 28, 2009, 02:40:47 PM »
Wigan Athletic 4 - Peston North End 1

Scotty came on after the half-time break.

48min: GOAL! 3-0 LATICS! Michael Brown's latches onto a squared ball from Jason Scotland to drill into the bottom left corner from the edge of the box. Smart finish and a neat set-up from Scotland, first touches in a Latics shirt have been good ones!

58min: Jason Scotland looking as though he's not relying purely on strength and force but willing to get the ball down and move it round. Playing up front on his own it seems with a five-man midfield behind him.

65min: Scotland puts Gomez through into the area but the Spaniard just can't reach the ball and pushes it wide.

78min: GOAL! 4-0 LATICS! Jason Scotland scores on his ebut for Latics! Michael Brown strikes from outside the area and the keeper can't hold onto it. Like any good striker Scotland pounces on the rebound and fires into the left hand corner.

84mins:  Another great chance for Jason Scotland after Michael Brown lays off a lovely ball from Scotland to strike straight at Lonergan.



New hero Scotland scores on debut as Latics run riot
By Paul Chialton (wiganlactics.co.uk)


Jason Scotland got his Wigan Athletic career off to a flyer at Deepdale, coming off the bench to score his first goal for the club and set up another as Roberto Martinez's men ran riot against Preston North End.

It was the game where everything finally clicked for Martinez and Scotland's goal was the icing on the cake.

The Trinidad & Tobago striker pouncing on a Michael Brown shot parried by the keeper and slotting into the bottom left-hand corner.

It was a bit of a role reversal in truth as moments earlier Scotland had set-up Brown on the edge of the box to put Latics 3-0 up.

Martinez really did get it spot on against the Championship side with his team, sporting this season's new orange away kit, controlling the game from start to finish.

His first-half team set up with attack in mind, Hugo Rodallega backed up by Charles N'Zogbia, the talismanic Jordi Gomez and Daniel de Ridder, who collectively fluctuated the pace of the game in Preston's half.

Lee Cattermole showed there's more to his game than charging down players, as he controlled the majority of the game, pinging balls out left and right, and creating some really positive passages of play.

It was one such ball that brought on the opening goal, playing the unstoppable N'Zogbia down the right-wing. The Frenchman cut back onto his left-foot and swung a cross in for Rodallega to head home.

Moments later N'Zogbia doubled the lead, picking up the ball in the same area, riding two challenges and slotting the ball into the bottom left corner for a really smart finish.

The second-half set-up with five in the middle looking to support the lone Scotland, and it worked well in bringing about another goal as well as dominating territory in the middle of the park.

Neil Mellor did squeeze an equaliser late on to bring some joy to the home crowd, but by then the 1000 or so travelling Latics fans were singing about their new hero up front.

Cosign to the power of 9, in fact I think Scottie owes us at least 9 goals by now!
I'm patiently :waiting: for JS to make us Trinis feel proud of him when repping us in the red, white & black especially if Latas puts faith in him starting for us once again!!

Scotty assists in Wigan loss.
Sportinglife.com


Wigan's preparations for the new Premier League season suffered a setback at Carrow Road as they lost 3-2 at League One Norwich - after twice being ahead.

The Latics went in front after just nine minutes through Charles N'Zogbia's cool finish, but the impressive Canaries were back on level terms before the break as Chris Martin sidefooted home Jon Otsemobor's cross after some poor defending on the right.

Wigan quickly regained the lead through Cho Won-Hee who produced a superb finish after being set up by Jason Scotland's clever pass.

But the hosts had the final word, quickly equalising through Martin's second goal of the game before grabbing a winner after 76 minutes when Simon Whaley slipped the ball past keeper Mike Pollitt.

U talking about dem liking to make man feel small, yet u belittling Scotland with utter untruths. Yuh on Scotland case, but when last ANY of our strikers score in WCQ?? Look at it as a positive, maybe it's a sign he catching some form, and that may translate to the national team. No need to shit on the man accomplishments to make your point.
