Wigan Athletic should stick with this 11 against Charlton today – Agree?

Wigan Athletic manager Paul Cook

Many Wigan Athletic fans may not have nails left to bite come 5pm today. With the midday fixture against Charlton Athletic, followed by a relegation 6-pointer between Hull City and Luton Town.

Wigan Athletic can take a huge step closer to Championship survival as the 12 point deduction continues to loom over the DW Stadium. An ideal day would be a Wigan win and Hull City sharing the points with fellow bottom three side Luton Town.

This would move Latics 14 points clear with the last game of the season coming on Wednesday.

Following a record 8-0 win over Hull CIty during the week, confidence is high for Paul Cook’s men. One defeat in seven matches since the restart has continued Wigan’s good form this year. Furthermore they will be boosted by the news of potential new owners could be in place by the end of the month according to BBC Sport.

Wigan Athletic team news

Joe Garner is back from suspension following his red card at Brentford, however Danny Fox is still suspended.

Paul Cook looks likely to keep the same starting eleven from midweek. All five of his forward line got on the scoresheet, with Dowell bagging a hat-trick.

Facing a Charlton Athletic side fighting for survival themselves and winless in the last five matches, many fans will be hoping for another emphatic win.
