‘We beat Man City with a Watson goal!’ will forever ring around the DW Stadium, regardless of whether Ben Watson is on the pitch or not.

Watson’s FA Cup final winning goal will forever immortalise the Camberwell-born midfielder who is now in his fifth season with Latics.

Unfortunately Ben’s appearance count has been seriously affected by two leg breaks in two years as the midfielder missed the second-half of the 2013/14 season due to the injury he picked up against Barnsley in February 2014 and also the severe break he suffered at Anfield in November 2012 that ruled him out for six months.

However, the former Crystal Palace man still has 122 appearances in all competitions for Latics, scoring 19 goals.
