Wigan Athletic suffered demotion from the English Championship two seasons after they had points deducted for going into administration. The Latics thenfinished just above the relegation last season as they narrowly missed out on demotion to League Two football. Wigan Athletic occupied the last safe place on the League One table at the end of last season.
League One summit recipients Rotherham United and Wycombe Wanderers are in League One this season after their relegation from the Championship last season. Sheffield Wednesday were the other team who suffered demotion from the Championship last season and they are in eighth spot at the moment.
As pointed out earlier, Wigan bossLeamRichardson hasa squad of quality players at his disposal. These players include James McLean, Charlie Wyke,Gwion Edwards, Max Power and many more.
Some Wigan Athletic players are facing an uncertain future ahead of the winter transfer window and they could leave the club when it opens in the next three weeks. 20-year-old fullback Luke Robinson came through the Wigan Athletic youth team before he made his first team bow. Robinson could leave the Latics in search of more first team opportunities. With the presence of Tom Pearce and return to full fitness of Joe Bennett, Robinson has seen little playing time for Wigan this season.
Young Wigan Athletic defender James Carragher is the son of Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher and he could also leave the Latics with clubs such as Everton and Rangers keen on him.
