Here’s how we rated each Rangers player in their victory at the DW Stadium.Alex Smithies: 7Had a couple of shaky moments in the first half. Was very well protected by his defence after that but did his job when called into action, diving low to his right to keep out a shot from Luke Garbutt and preserve Rangers’ lead. AdChoices广告James Perch: 8An excellent performance against his former club. Got forward from right-back when possible and at the other end he won a number of important challenges, not least when he prevented a Wigan equaliser by thwarting Will Grigg at the far post in injury time.Nedum Onuoha: 8Great stuff from the Rangers captain. He organised quietly but effectively – and made no mistake when a chance to score came his way.Grant Hall: 8An excellent, composed performance. Gave Grigg virtually nothing and did so with minimum fuss. Superb.Jake Bidwell: 7A no-frills performance from the left-back – exactly the kind of display he was signed for. Solid defensively and able to deliver well from set pieces.Karl Henry: 7Another who delivered exactly the kind of no-nonsense performance he’s required to. Henry shut down Wigan when necessary, offering excellent protection of the back four.Massimo Luongo: 7The Australian is showing he can be disciplined off the ball as well as dangerous on it. He was prepared to dig in alongside Henry and make sure Wigan were frustrated.Jordan Cousins: 7Also moved close to Henry and the back four when needed. Cousins has boundless energy and played his part in keeping Wigan at bay.Tjaronn Chery: 7Quiet by his standards but still contributed. Tried his luck with a couple of attempts on goal but it wasn’t his day.Yeni Ngbakato: 6Clearly trying to adjust to English football following his recent move from Metz. Has pace and plenty of ability but wasn’t able to impose himself on the game.Sebastian Polter: 8His touch sometimes let him down, but what the German lacks in finesse he’s prepared to make up for in effort. He ran himself into the ground, never letting Wigan’s defenders settle or start attacks from the back. And his refusal to let them clear Bidwell’s free-kick led to Onuoha scoring the all-important goal.last_img
