Fleetwood Town travel to Wigan Athletic this evening for an EFL Trophy match at the DW Stadium, and we've got all you need to know ahead of the 7pm kick-off.
Fixture: Wigan Athletic v Fleetwood Town
Competition: EFL Trophy (Group Stage Game)
Date: Tuesday 10 October 2023
Kick-off: 7pm (BST)
Venue: 15 Loire Drive, Robin Park Rod, Wigan, WN5 0UH
The Latics come into this on the back of a four game losing streak, and will be hoping to put things right on Tuesday night when Fleetwood Town are at the DW Stadium. Manager Shaun Maloney guided Wigan to a 7-1 home win over Leicester City's Under-21s in the first round of fixtures in this competition, and a win on home soil will help paper over the cracks after defeats away at Stevenage, Burton and Bristol Rovers, and a home defeat to Portsmouth at the end of September.
Following three wins from four in the league at the start of the 2023/24 season, it was looking bright for the Latics. Striker Charlie Wyke scored two in the opening day win at Derby County, and then one against Carlisle United, two at Bolton Wanderers and another at Bristol Rovers at the Memorial Stadium. Their talisman saw red at the weekend, but will be eligible for tonight's match if selected.
Wigan currently sit 18th in the Sky Bet League One table, but we all know what a good cup run can do for confidence and beleif within the squad. Will they turn things around? Find out as you can watch all the action unfold on iFollow for just £10 - Buy your iFollow pass HERE!
