Lactics In Great Form

Wigan come into this match on the back of a 2-1 win against Brentford in the Championship, an excellent home win.

Sam Morsy (28) had an excellent game and he opened the scoring for the Lactics, who desperately needed this win.

Wigan doubled their advantage just four minutes later, with an unfortunate own goal from Harlee Dean (32).

Substitute Jota Peleteiro Ramallo (86) ensured a nervy finish for Wigan, with the consolation goal coming four minutes from time.

Three Successive Wins

The Lactics have won six games this season, meaning they have doubled their winning tally in the last three matches.

Wigan Underdogs

Visitors Wigan come into this match as the underdogs, with the calibre of their opponents and being away from home contributing.
