Match Preview for visit ofPortsmouth

Wigan Athletic will play their first home match at home in front of their new owners, hoping that the fortunes off the pitch carry on to the DW Stadium turf.

Latics have had a rough season and today sees the dawning of a new era as we set out to prove to the Phoenix 2021 Group that they made the right decision.

Portsmouth are themselves looking to keep their playoff aspirations steady, whilst we want to get ourselves back out of the relegation places.

The head to head is slightly in favour of the visitors, but we hold the honours of beating them at their gaff in a thrilling 2-1 victory which we would gladly like to repeat today.

Leam looks to have all but 1 to choose from and so can field a pretty decent team, hopefully with attacking in mind.

The referee is Tom Nield whose day job is a nurse, so has been on the front line for the NHS throughout the pandemic. He has only officiated us once this season, a loss to Gillingham early in the season.

We hope for the lads to be back to from with a good performance, but unlike recent games actually get the result these games have deserved and a 2-0 win.
