Wigan Athletic welcome Leeds United to the DW Stadium in confident form.
Not only have the Latics gone unbeaten in their last ten home matches, only needing a few more points to guarantee them a playoff place, but their west Yorkshire visitors are on a terrible slide down the table, having lost six of their last seven games.
Leeds have let in 14 goals in their last six matches, and that may very well prompt manager Brian McDermott to make some drastic changes to the side in an attempt to stop the rot.
The clear difference between the teams is in defence, Wigan have only scored one more goal than Leeds’ total of 52 in the Championship. The home side have conceded just 39 so far though, which is a stark contrast to Leeds’ 59 allowed in 39 matches.
The game should see an intriguing battle between two Premier League loanees – Manchester United’s Nick Powell up front for Wigan Athletic, and Stoke City’s Jack Butland in goal for Leeds United.
Elsewhere, Ross McCormack should plow a lone furrow up front for Leeds, while Martyn Waghorn will look to do the damage from attacking midfield for Wigan.
