Boyce fears Wigan are cut adrift in the Premier League



Defender Emmerson Boyce has conceded Wigan are starting to look cut adrift after losing their EIGHTH successive game at Wolves.


The Latics were easily beaten 3-1 by fellow strugglers Wolves on Sunday in a game which brought an FA charge against skipper Antolin Alcaraz for spitting at Richard Stearman.


That could land him with a three-match ban and make it even harder for Wigan to close up the five point gap that separates them from safety.


Boyce said: ``It’s going to be hard for us to pull that gap back, but we have to do so starting against Blackburn in a fortnight.


``It’s a challenge for us, but it’s one we’re up for. We have to be.''


Wigan have netted a paltry seven goals in 11 games this term and Boyce is pleading with his strikers to start hitting the target.

He added: ``We’re creating chances but not putting them away, and we don’t seem to be able to keep clean sheets either.

 

``When that’s the case, you’re not going to win matches. It’s a recipe for disaster.

``We desperately need to work out how to start scoring some goals, keeping clean sheets and picking up points, before it’s too late.''
