Wigan v Sheffield United Preview

The Latics go into today`s game against Sheffield United knowing only a victory will do.

Following a disastrous run of results Wigan find themselves in the bottom three for the first time this season.

The main problem at the moment is scoring goals, indeed they have not scored since the 3-3 draw with Tottenham Hotspur, making it three games with out a goal.

Wigan have injury doubts over Leighton Baines and Arry DeZeeuw and they have David Unsworth on stand-by.

Definitely out are Chris Kirkland and Fitz Hall.

For the Blades Rob Hulse is ruled out recovering from a broken leg and Nick Montgomery is rated doubtful with a shoulder injury.

Earlier in the season Sheffield United beat the Laics 1-0 at the JJB with Hulse getting the only goal of the game.

With the stakes so high in this game we can expect a tense affair; both sides can still suffer relegation, so there is sure to be tears at the end, joy or sadness, only time will tell.

Referee for today is Mike Dean

Prediction

Heart 2-1 Latics win

Head 2-0 Sheffield United win

As a Liverpool supporter, I have a soft spot for Paul Jewel and I think that both he and your Chairman Dave Whelan have done a brilliant job to get you to the Premiership. Things have certainly gone against you in recent weeks but I'm desperately hoping you can turn it around and get a result today and stay up. Good luck.

As a Liverpool and Bradford City supporter, I am glad you lot stayed up. Jewell has kept Bradford and Wigan up. Problem is, bigger clubs might come looking for him (Jewell).
