Wigan Athletic and Sheffield United will lock horns with each other at the DW Stadium in the Championship next week. The match is scheduled to kick off at 8pm UK time next Monday.

Wigan Athletic

Wigan Athletic were playing in the Premier League less than 10 years ago and winning the FA Cup, but things are so different now. The Latics are really struggling in the Championship at the moment, and there is a real chance that they could get relegated to League One at the end of the season.

The Latics are third from bottom in the Championship table at the moment with 24 points from 22 matches. They are a point behind 21st-placed Hull City and are in grace danger of going down to the third tier of English football.

Wigan will head into the match against Sheffield United at the DW Stadium in the Championship on the back of a 1-1 draw with Millwall away from home in the league. It was Kolo Toure’s first game in charge of the Latics. It followed a 2-1 victory over Blackpool at home in the Championship.

Team News:

Wigan Athletic manager Kolo Toure may not make too many changes to the team against Sheffield United. James Jones will be in goal, Jack Whatmough will be in central defence and Joe Bennett will be at left-back. Nathan Broadhead, on loan from Everton, will lead the line for the Latics. Callum Lang, Will Keane and James McLean will be the three attacking midfielders behind him.

Sheffield United

Sheffield United are having a wonderful season at the moment and are in a great position to get promoted from the Championship to the Premier League. The Blades are currently second in the Championship table with 41 points from 22 matches, just three points behind leaders Burnley. The Yorkshire club are also five points above third-placed Blackburn Rovers.

The Blades will head into the match against Wigan Athletic away from home at the DW Stadium in the Championship next Monday on the back of a 1-0 victory over Huddersfield Town at Bramall Lane in the league. It allowed a 1-0 victory over Cardiff City away from home at the Cardiff City Stadium in the league.

Team News:

Sheffield United manager Paul Heckingbottom is unlikely to make two many changes to his team for the match against Wigan Athletic next week. Wes Foderingham will be in goal, like always. John Egan and Ciaran Clark will be the two centre-backs. Sander Berge came on as a substitute against Huddersfield, and the Norway international midfielder is likely to be included in the starting lineup. Lee Sharp will lead the line for the Blades along with Iliman Ndiaye.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Wigan Athletic have scored 22 goals in 22 Championship matches.
  • Wigan Athletic have conceded 32 goals in 22 Championship games.
  • Sheffield United have scored 36 goals in 22 Championship matches.
  • Sheffield United have conceded 19 goals in 22 Championship games.
  • Iliman Ndiaye has scored 9 goals and given 3 assists in the Championship for Sheffield United.


Although Sheffield United are the away team, they are better than Wigan Athletic and are in better form. It is hard to see the Latics win against the Blades. Manager Paul Heckingbottom is doing a wonderful job at the Yorkshire club, and it is very likely that he will lead the team to all three points in Wigan next week.
