Wigan vs Preston
England – Championship
Date: Monday, 22nd April 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: DW Stadium (Wigan).
Wigan is floating on the relegation line and has a lead of just two points over the cut-off. More problem for the team is the fact that Millwall, the team just above them in the table has a game in hand. So, as things stand, every team in the exit zone will be targeting the spot of Wigan, the last safe team as of now in the Championship.
As per recent form, Preston is the worst team in the league right now. They lost the last four games in a row, and not even Ipswich, an already relegated side, and the dead-last team in the table have replicated that effort. Preston does have the confidence of beating Wigan in the reverse fixture of this tie, however.
