Wigan awaiting Gilingham in 26th round of English League One. Wigan currently occupies decent 5th position which leads them into play offs for promotion into Championship for the next season. They showed solid performances in this campaign and for sure will try to continue with good results after this match. In previous round they divided points with Scunthorpe while before that achieved two victories. Wigan ended previous season at 23rd position at the table and were relegated from Championship, if they continue with performances like so far for sure will be able to find their ticket for return into 2nd English league. Wigan is playing good attacking football, in previous 24 rounds they scored 35 goals while conceded 22. Wigan was eliminated from all Cups and they are now fully focused on league and now must try to achieve positive outcome and retain their position at the table. They for sure have enough quality to win their promotion but to achieve that must continue with good results, they are now facing against strong opponent, in their first duel in this campaign Wigan was defeated on the road 2:0 and must play here on very high level to avoid defeat. As for abent players, Forward Yanic Wildshut (13/2) left the club, midfielder Francisco Junior (10/1), defender Kevin McNaughton (2/0) and foward Sanmi Odelusi (3/0) will stay out of action due to injuries.
Gilingham on the other side is currently at 2nd position at the table and now must go for a victory in order to at least keep their position. Gilingham is coming here after four straight victories, in those matches they conceded only one goal and team seems to be in great shape. Gilingham ended previous season at 12th position and they are now for sure more than satisfied with their results, there is still a lot of matches in front of them, but if they manage to keep their position Gilingham can win direct promotion into English Championship. They are playing great attacking football in this campaign and with 49 goals scored are most effective team in league while also did a solid defensive ob and conceded 29. They managed to achieve positive outcome and win in last two duels against Wigan but before that suffered three defeats and judging by their current form are able to achieve another victory in this season. Gilingham also was eliminated form all Cups and they are fully focused on league. Defenders Adedeji Oshilaja (12/3) and Fordan Houghton (11/1) left the club, forward Luke Norris (17/3) has problems with minor injuries and his appearance is in doubt while forward Cody McDonald (15/3) will miss this match due to an injury.
Wigan now has a hard task to achieve positive outcome against one of main pretenders for direct promotion into Championship, but they are in decent shape and now must try to exploit advantage of home field and win all three points, while Gilingham is in really great shape and they will for sure give their best to achieve another three points against Wigan, I expect great match with a lot of excitements and both teams to score.
