Wigan versus Stoke preview

Wigan versus Stoke Preview

Tonight’s game has become massive, if it wasn’t big enough already. All the results bar Huddersfield went against Stoke at the weekend leaving the Potters just 1 point above the relegation zone with 7 games to play. We shouldn’t have to be relying on other teams losing games for us to stave of the unthinkable, but the performances in our last two games have gave us no hope we can keep our destiny in our own hands. Wigan away has not proved a good hunting ground having not won at the DW Stadium in the league since 2005
