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.
The Lyrics have been able to assemble a star-studded squad for a League One team and they are on course to seal promotion to the English Championship at the end of this season as predicted before the current season started in August. As things stand in League One football, Wigan Athletic are second on the league table and they have the same points (41) as Rotherham United in first place and Wycombe Wanderers in third place. The Latics have played one more game than league leaders Rotherham United and two more games than Wycombe Wanderers.
