These 15 seconds of football perfectly show why Rotherham and Wigan are both going down

It’s not been a good season to be a Rotherham United fan.

They’ve won just four games in the Championship all season, losing an enormous 32, and became the first team in the football league to be relegated when they lost to Fulham, appropriately enough on April Fools’ Day.

The league table is also not pleasant reading for Wigan Athletic. Just take a look at this, with a veritable sea of red squares, denoting losses:

The two struggling teams squared up on Saturday at the DW Stadium, and this glorious 15 seconds of footage left us in no doubt as to exactly why they’re occupying the positions they are.

Proceed, and enjoy this stunning piece of performance art, featuring Wigan in blue and white, and Rotherham in yellow:

Truly glorious, reminiscent of this heroic goalmouth scramble in its consistent display of hopelessness. We’re not actually sure who’s supposed to be defending or attacking.

The game itself finished in a 3-2 win for Wigan after they came from behind, scoring the winner in the seventh minute of injury time. If it was that much of a struggle to beat Rotherham, we don’t fancy their chances of beating the drop.
