FORMER Wanderers boss Owen Coyle is expected to be sacked as manager of Wigan Athletic later today.

The Scot, who left the Reebok last October, has spent just six months in charge of the Latics but has presided over an alarming drop in form.

A 3-1 defeat against Derby County on Sunday was Wigan’s third in nine days, and leaves the club 14th in the Championship table.

Coyle is set to become the third Championship manager sacked over the weekend, after Sheffield Wednesday’s Dave Jones and Barnsley’s David Flitcroft.
