Latics Prepare For Visit of Champions

Wigan take on Manchester United on Wednesday night looking to pick up their first points against the champions in their top flight history.

Going into Saturday’s game at Stamford Bridge, the Latics had just lost once in eight matches, and despite the controversial defeat, they will be confident of picking up something on Wednesday evening.

Defeats for Bolton and Blackburn over the last couple of days mean that they are still within touching distance of survival and they will look to take advatage at the DW. 

They head into the clash at the DW Stadium looking to finally end their run of 14 consecutive defeats against Sir Alex Ferguson’s men.

Speaking ahead of the clash Roberto Martinez believes his side are in the right frame of mind ahead of the game. “Against Manchester United you have to be perfect and we know now we can be perfect against these sides.”

“We are now facing the champions and the team most in form in the league. It is a great football occasion for us, and that is why we want to be in this league.”

Last season’s hero Hugo Rodallega is again likely to miss out tomorrow and, Martinez is likely to stick with the same XI that has done well over recent weeks.

Bringing a halt to the horrendous run against Manchester United would be huge for the Latics survival chances and anything they can get from the Champions Elect will be massive. The run in includes clashes against Blackburn and Wolves as well as trips to Arsenal and Fulham.

Despite not scoring against United in nearly 3 years, fans and players alike, can be very confident of pulling off a victory and re-ignite the push for survival and once thing for certain is that the DW will be rocking come kick off.
