Morsy Man of the Match as Wigan smash Bury 3-0
Sam Morsy’s Wigan Athletic moved four points clear of Adam El-Abd’s Gillingham in 2nd place of League One with a thumping 3-0 win over local rivals Bury, after goals from Ryan Colclough and a brace from Will Grigg.
Wigan got off to a dream start, as Dutch winger Wildschut caused a lot of early danger which paid off as his cross found Will Grigg who had the simple job of heading home.
Moments later, midfielder Ryan Colclough scored a spectacular goal after cutting in onto his left foot and curling it past the helpless Lawlor.
Things went from bad to worse for Bury as Lawlor brought down goalscorer Grigg, who famously scored a brace in a 4-0 win for MK Dons against Manchester United last season. The Northern Ireland international then dispatched his penalty to put the game beyond all doubt early on.
Despite it being a comfortable win for the Latics, Premier League legend Jussi Jaaskelainen was called into action on a number of occasions and was forced into some trademark reflex saves, namely in the first half from Mayor and Pope.
In the second half, Will Grigg almost secured a hat-trick after his shot hit the bar but didn’t make it across the line. Later in the half, League One Player of the Month Max Power also hit the bar from distance for Wigan.
English-born Egyptian Sam Morsy was involved, playing 90 minutes and picking up a Man of the Match award for the second consecutive week in the process.

The win means Wigan are four points clear of Gillingham in the automatic promotion spaces, after the Gills lost 2-1 at home to Morsy’s former club Chesterfield. Bury are 16th, ten points above the drop zone.
It is worth mentioning that Egypt international Adam El-Abd joined Gillingham on loan on Friday for the remainder of the season and made his debut in the 2-1 loss.
