EFL history made during League One clash between Wigan and Wycombe

EFL History was made during the League One clash between Wigan Athletic and Wycombe last night.

Shaun Maloney’s Wigan hosted Wycombe at the DW Stadium on Tuesday.

And the hosts secured victory in extremely dramatic fashion as they netted the winner in the 110th minute (!!) of normal time.

Wigan vs. Wycombe had 19 minutes of stoppage time following an injury to match referee Adam Herczeg.

And Wigan’s Charlie Hughes made the most of the additional time, grabbing his side’s winner 19 minutes and 50 seconds into stoppage time, making EFL history in the process.

It’s believed to be the latest recorded goal in the history of the EFL.

It comes just days after Oli McBurnie registered the latest goal in Premier League history.

After the match, Wigan boss Maloney said: “It was a strange one… a prolonged one because of the delay..it was probably tough to watch, because it was tough to play in conditions that weren’t easy.

“It was a really difficult game, but to finally break them down and get that winner, the players are delighted.

“It felt like another big moment for us, and it’s one of those moments where you just have to enjoy it – and we did.

“Normally I don’t show too much emotion after goals, and I don’t even think I did after this one.

“But I absolutely loved two aspects of the goal…the first was Callum McManaman’s one-v-one.

“In the final third, I thought we were good tonight until we got into that part of the pitch, and we were a bit off it.

“But then you get a moment from Callum, who has that one-v-one talent that you just can’t coach.

“I loved what he did, and then obviously Charlie’s finish…again, you just can’t coach that kind of ability.

“I’m well chuffed for him, and I actually thought in the whole second half he was brilliant.”
