Plymouth ReactionGoalsChancesRefOne Point To GoMotMPortsmouth PreviewView From The Home EndRef WatchPrevious & FormPredictionsThe last home game of the season, hoping for a grand finale to a glorious campaign, but we are Wigan Athletic and we just love to do things a little differently, none of the easy stuff here.A draw against Plymouth was perhaps always on the cards, carrying rubber stamping of promotion over to Tuesday evening down on the South Coast at Portsmouth, we do have a few connections with them after all.We did have opportunities to get it sealed, but a great save, a wayward finish, a bobble of the ball and a referee not prepared to make a decision all contrived to leave us waiting another four days at least.So off down south on Tuesday, Jack Whatmough, Tom Naylor and manager Leam Richardson all returning to their old stomping ground, what a place to not only gain promotion, a draw would be enough, but also potentially win the title if we Sunderland do us a favour, yeah I know, against Rotherham, for one night only I'll be hoping for a Sunderland win.Up the tics!
Ipswich ReactionWill Keane On FireA point is a pointGoalsMotMThanks to Oxford and BurtonPlymouth PreviewView From The Away EndRef WatchPreviousPredictionsLast home game of the season on Saturday, and what a season it's been, quite emotional when you think about our journey over the past 12 months, a great deal to be proud of and the Latics spirit really showing through.We had a tough encounter at Ipswich on Tuesday, but came through relatively unscathed, a point is a point and puts us on the verge of completing our objective of winning promotion, we are very much in the driving seat, a win on Saturday will seal it.Hopefully we are set for a great occasion as we entertain Plymouth at the DW Stadium, a bumper crowd and a bubbling atmosphere, I can't wait to get down there and cheer the lads on, let's enjoy the day and make the most of it.Up the tics!
CambridgeChangesGoalsChancesPerformancesMotMMK Dons & RotherhamIpswich PreviewView From The Home EndRef Watch PreviousPredictionsLeague One FixturesWell, that wasn't what the doctor ordered, League One continually throws up surprises, both ourselves and MK Dons falling to defeat whilst out of form Rotherham grind out a result. This is going to the wire isn't it. We were well out of sorts but credit must go to Cambridge who looked very capable and caused us lot's of problems. Four games to go, top of the league by four points and a game in hand on one of the two teams that can catch us, I'd have taken that three weeks ago let alone the start of the season, we've been magnificent throughout the course of this campaign, now we just need to hold our nerve and get the job done.Ipswich away on Tuesday, a great insight into the Tractor Boys from our guest, Richard Moss in the 'View From The Home End', all I can say is bring it on, a win for us and defeat for MK Dons away at Oxford and we are up with three games to go, but let's not get carried away, a tough game in store at Portman Road, but we are excellent on the road. Exciting times.Up The Tics!
Burton Reaction20 mile DetoursUnder The Bar ClearancesChancesTalal In The Away EndMotMCambridge PreviewView From The Away EndRef WatchForm & PreviousPredictionsWe keep marching on,  a hard fought point at Burton keeps us within touching distance of promotion, earned by an absolute breathtaking last minute clearance from Kell Watts, simply sensational.Cambridge United at the DW on Easter Saturday, Sky TV cameras will be at the game, the penultimate home game, this season has flown by.We have Cambridge fan Tom Walker from the Under The Abbey podcast previewing the game and pick out his players to watch, Tom will be stopping over at the Premier Inn in town and sampling the delights of a Saturday night out in Wigan, lets hope he knows what he is letting himself in for.Two wins from promotion? I would think so, we could have it all wrapped up by the time Plymouth are here next weekend.Up The Tics!
