Bolton & Wigan look to get back on track

Both Bolton and Wigan suffered defeats last week and, in the Championship the games come thick and fast to bounce straight back…

Following promotion from League one Wigan have had a solid start to life back in the Championship. However, following defeat to struggling QPR they will look to bounce back before a rot can set in.

Despite dominating possession, the Latics couldn’t turn that into a winning goal. With a trip back to the DW Stadium with fellow mid-table team Rotherham United the opposition, they will look to go one better and take advantage when they are on top.


Bolton suffered their first defeat of the season after a fantastic first four games, however, they still currently sit third in the Championship and will be hoping to get that early season run going again.

A trip to rivals Preston North End, who haven’t won since the first game of the season, is the perfect game for Phil Parkinson’s men to keep up appearances at the top end of the table.

With both teams out of the Carabao Cup, they’ve had a full week to get things right on the training ground, a win for both Latics and the Trotters will keep the momentum going despite the bumps last week.
