By far the biggest game of the weekend in League. Probably the 2 teams with the biggest budgets, both going for promotion, potential for loads of goals.

Sheff U have been quite a strange team this year. Look like title contenders one week, relegation candidates the next. They can't seem to string together enough results to get into the play offs, yet have hovered just below them all season.

As for Wigan, they have really clicked in recent weeks, going unbeaten in their last 8. They have now risen to 4th and are within striking distance of the top 2.

I think this could be a cracker of a game, given the fact the 2 teams played out a 3-3 draw on Sky a few weeks back. Big statement of intent for whoever wins this game I think.

Form(last 6 games):
Sheff Utd: W2, D3, L1, F11, A9, Pts 9
Wigan: W3, D3, L0, F14, A8, Pts 12

Recent meetings:
Wigan Ath 3-3 Sheff Utd(L1, 12 Jan 2016)

Think we might be witnessing a very very nasty atmosphere towards the club on saturday when we get trounced.

Well over a year since we last didn't score in a competitive fixture at home. Reckon this is where our run ends, average form, hostile atmosphere and good opponents.

0-1

My favourite Wigan performance in Sheffield came back in May 2007.

I have a feeling that Wigan will end the season very strongly, winning most games from now on.

well according to a lot of sheffield utd fans we are going to murder you :bg1: i agree if we play how we can..

Weve only played well twice all season peterborough away and bradford at home. Apart from that its just wank most of the time and fuck knows how we managed a draw at your place last month a repeat of that display you will win. And yet a crowd of 20,000 will be there yet again to witness the same old shite. Maybe the board might act if people stop going.

to be honest with you mate your second half performance at the dw was prob one of the best i have seen here...i know we were not great in that 2nd half but to come from 3 nil down against us at home takes some doing so that shows your not a million miles away from being a top team in this league

Wigan should win this division at a canter now with their squad and momentum to be honest.
