Balogun: Wigan must be ready to fight relegation

Nigerian international Leon has urged his side to keep fighting for good results in the remaining matches this season.

Wigan are currently in the relegation zone and have 31 points from 33 matches and are five points from safety with the season gradually coming to an end.


The German-born Nigerian international defender who joined on loan from Premier League Brighton until the end of the season has helped the club in the two games he played.


Balogun was thrust into the limelight immediately following Chey Dunkley’s red card against Middlesbrough and also marked his first start at Cardiff with an imperious display.


The experienced defender has now the entire club to keep fighting in order to avoid dropping to the league one at the end of the season.


I’ve been in this situation before in my career and one thing you cannot do is hope that everything else will go your way.


You can’t rely on luck, the officials’ decisions, other score lines or circumstances, it’s us as a club, the players, the staff and the fans.


“We have to be ready; we have to be ready to battle against any adversity and focus on ourselves, that way we’ll have great chances to get the job done.


“We’ve lost one of our last five games and that’s a positive. We’ve got two wins, two draws and one loss, it’s not a bad statistic. If we keep doing our thing and focusing, then we’re on the right path.


“I’ve only been here for two weeks or so now, but I don’t see any signs of this team stagnating or lack of effort.


There’s a great spirit here and I think that’s what those pictures and scenes after the match portray.” Balogun told the official website of the Latics.
