The game at the DW Stadium between the Latics and Reading is a massive one in determining the end of season playoff places, with just three points separating the two teams there is a lot at stake as the fixtures are fast running out.
In the build up to the game both bosses have spoken to the media, let's take a look at what they have had to say:
Latics boss Uwe Rösler - 'In this league we try not to think about the upcoming games too much, we just try to play it and then move onto the next one and that's exactly what we're doing; we'll prepare for Reading
'I saw them on Monday night, knowing all about them and hopefully we find a plan that will work to win the game'
'I think before the season they were one of the favourites to go up directly so you're only going to be classed as one of the favourites when you have quality in your squad'
'I think that they have lots of quality with international players but we also have a very good squad at our disposal.
'The players are fit and ready to go, I think everybody wants to go back to Wembley and we're using that defeat as motivation to go back there, to do that, we have to at least win our two home games.'
'It's necessary for us to win our two home games to make sure we cement our place in the top six but we'll take every game as it comes; I think it's important we select the team that gives us the best chance to win against Reading because that's the main priority.
'Obviously as a manager you always have half an eye on the next one with it being so close together.'
Reading boss Nigel Adkins - 'We are looking forward to it, it's a very exciting end to the season,'
'Wigan are above us in the table, we can get closer to them with a victory or they can pull away from us.
'At this stage of the season the magnitude of results grows and grows and it's going to be a good one.
'Wigan have been magnificent - they've had a lot of games, the FA Cup semi-final and Europe. They want to get back up there at the first time of asking, but so do we.'
