Often the most dangerous players are the inconsistent ones. Blessed with talent, they can have a shocking performance one week then turn on the style next time out. Opposing teams never know what to expect and sometimes Spurs in particular can be on the wrong end of things when they’re on top of their game (anyone remember Daniel Amokachi?).
Hugo Rodallega doesn’t quite fall into Amokachi’s category, but he is certainly a talented player and one to watch out for tomorrow. The 25 year old Colombian is Wigan’s top scorer this season and is capable of spectacular goals as well as being deadly at set pieces.
He is however another inconsistent player and you never know which Hugo Rodallega will turn up. Maybe he would perform more consistently at a better side and if Wigan do go down then you can bet that he will attract a lot of interest from other Premier League outfits.
After a prolific scoring record in South America, his goal ratio has dropped since arriving in England, but Tottenham fans will remember his decisive goal that saw Wigan beat us at White Hart Lane earlier this season. Spurs will need to be on their guard for Rodallega at the JD tomorrow.

Thats the article of someone who has only seen Wigan on Match of the Day.
Hugo is too slow to be of any danger playing our favoured and ineffectual 4-5-1 system. However the pace of N’Zogbia and Moses will cause problems.
The key tomorrow will be finding out which Wigan side turns up, the one that finished against Brum last time out will give you a run but should the one that capitulated so badly in the second half against United turn up it’ll be a cake walk for you.
