Wigan Athletic 1-2 Lincoln City: What 3 Things Did We Learn?

#2
1) It's a cliche, but they say that the mark of a good teams is to play badly and win. I wouldn't quite go so far as to say we played badly, but we weren't the best team on the pitch, and we won. They had about 4 shots from within the six-yard box in the last five minutes and not one of them was on target. That's either great defending, or luck - and today I thought it was luck.

2) Scully has that knack that good strikers have of being there for tap-ins. It looks like he's taken a bit of a knock and might be out for a little while, and he'll be missed.

3) On the other hand, I'm not sure I've ever seen Tom Hopper score a tap in. Headers from close range, yes, but not tap ins. Neither have I seen him pick up the ball 40 yards from goal and outpace the defence before executing a cheeky little turn and popping one in the top corner. Today was the day.
