Blackpool vs Wigan Big Game Preview

Blackpool FC
Wigan Athletic

Bloomfield Road



Latics travel to Blackpool looking for three points which could see them return to the top of League One. We were disappointing in mid-week performance-wise, however I think the majority were happy with a point in the end. If we can return with maximum points tomorrow, I think it's safe to say it'll of been a very successful week.

To the 2100 travelling tomorrow: Enjoy your day, drink plenty of beer and most importantly bring back three points.
