Wigan win

Wigan’s focus comes back on League One after the exit from the FA Cup. The Latics have had a tough time against Sheffield Wednesday in recent years after four defeats in the last six matches. Wednesday come into this game as one of the teams on form over the last few weeks. They have registered four wins in the recent five fixtures, while there is also home advantage. However, Wigan have the motivation of promotion and the team has already dropped six points away from the top.

Sheffield Wednesday vs Wigan: Match Preview and Team News

Sheffield Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday have managed a string of wins in recent weeks to get into the verge of a top six position for the first time since the early weeks of the campaign. The club are finally appearing to be in a position where they can challenge for a return to the Championship. Wednesday will be without Lewis Gibson and Dennis Adeniran due to injury.


Wigan are winless in three consecutive matches in all competitions, but the exit from the FA Cup should help the team focus back on getting promotion. Wigan occupy the top two places, but there is very little room for comfort and complacency with the likes of Sunderland and MK Dons breathing down their necks.
