Stoke City 0-3 Wigan Athletic

Stoke City 0-3 Wigan Athletic

Will Grigg has scored three goals in his past two games for Wigan AthleticStoke City's winless start in the Championship continued as they were well beaten by newly promoted Wigan Athletic.Wigan took the lead when Will Grigg poked home from Gavin Massey's low cross into the box, and they doubled their advantage when Massey finished from a tight angle.The hosts conceded a penalty when Joe Allen brought down Grigg, who fired past Jack Butland from the spot for his second.
As the game drew to a close, Stoke were reduced to 10 men when Ashley Williams was sent off for a second yellow card after a bad tackle on Massey.
Relive Wednesday's EFL action as it happened
Stoke struggled for long periods and the result means they have now failed to win their past nine home league games, stretching back to last season when they were relegated from the Premier League.Williams, meanwhile, has been sent off in two of his past three league starts, with his previous red card coming for Everton against Burnley in March.Boos rang around the Bet365 Stadium at the final whistle after another poor performance from the Potters, who have taken just two points from a possible 12 under Gary Rowett.Perhaps more worryingly for Rowett, his side failed to register a shot on target in the whole 90 minutes.The hosts had in fact started well, with Benik Afobe having the ball in the net early on when he finished coolly past Christian Walton, but the flag was raised for offside.However, Northern Ireland striker Grigg's brace and Massey's first-half goal ensured Stoke's search for a first league win since their relegation from the top flight continues.Stoke City boss Gary Rowett told BBC Radio Stoke:"I'll take responsibility for that performance and I'll look at what I've done and be brave enough to say that. What I need is some of the players brave enough to say that."If the fans want to boo me, I'm fine with that. I can't complain about it or say they're unjustified in doing it."I'll be man enough to stand outside there and try and turn this thing around."Wigan Athletic manager Paul Cook told BBC Radio Manchester:"We always felt we'd have moments in the game and obviously the key moments tonight have gone our way."The goals were scored at good times in the game for us and when you win a game like that, everything has to fall into place."Stoke not scoring early in the game was massive for us."
