Wigan vs Charlton Big Match Preview

Wigan Athletic
Charlton Athletic

DW Stadium



Charlton have 17 players out injured, Wigan unbeaten in 6 in the league, you know the rest.

We head into the game in brilliant form, 11 goals in our last three matches. We should have beat Shrewsbury on Boxing Day, but I think we'll all forget about it if we win tonight and go seven points clear at the top.

Charlton are in poor form after starting the season very well, The Addicks have picked up just one point from their last four matches. Not such a surprise when you hear of the 17 injuries they have.

Hopefully a routine win against a injury-stricken, out of form Charlton.

Wigan Athletic Team News:

Wigan boss Paul Cook has no new injury or suspension worries. Expecting him to name the same side that drew 0-0 vs Shrewsbury.

Player to watch: Will Grigg

Scored a hat-trick in last weeks 7-0 demolition over Oxford, will be hungry for more goals.

Charlton Athletic Team News:

Leon Best, Chris Solly and Mark Marshall will be monitored by Charlton ahead of the trip.

Six goals from midfield this season, always a threat at this level.
