Wigan got a chance to play in the Championship after the previous season and the experts had various opinions on them. Some of them thought that Wigan would be successful in the current season and the others thought that Wigan would fail. As we see now, the second ones were right, in fact.

The victory against Rotherham in the latest game was the first one in their latest four games where the Latics lost to Ipswich Town, Newcastle, Aston Villa and Bristol City.

Even though Barnsley have no tournament motivation in the national championship at the moment as they have no chances to make it to the relegation zone at all, they still try their best to win in every match they play. The victory against Blackburn in the latest match 0:2 was the first one since February 14 and it prolonged the lossless series of the team to make it three matches long already. We must remind you that in the previous matches Barnsley drew Cardiff and Sheffield Wednesday and before that los to Norwich 2:0.

The teams have already played five games against each other since 2014. Both of the teams won twice and in the first round game of the current season they drew 0:0. Wigan are one of the worst teams of the Championship as thy only gained 18 points in their 20 home matches played since the start of the season. Barnsley are better in the away matches compared to the home ones and they are the fifth tam of the championship according to their results in the away games.
