Predicted Wigan and Leeds United lineups

Wigan Crowd Giant Shirt

Wigan Athletic and Leeds United go head-to-head on Saturday.

To be played on Saturday 7th March 2015 at 15:00. Venue: DW Stadium, Wigan

Odds: Wigan 11/10, Draw 21/10, Leeds 14/5

Wigan Athletic welcome Leeds United to the DW Stadium on Saturday afternoon with both sides eager to secure the three points for different reasons.

The Latics are currently 22nd in the Championship, six points from safety with games running out, while Leeds are looking to build on their 2-1 win against Ipswich Town earlier this week.

Wigan have enjoyed something of a renaissance in recent days, winning consecutive matches against Blackpool and Norwich City, and the latter result in particular will have given Malky Mackay’s side a huge amount of confidence going into the weekend fixture.

Neil Redfearn’s Leeds have seen a few false dawns this season, but having put recent defeats to Brighton & Hove Albion and Watford behind them they could continue their climb up the table.

After scoring twice in his last two appearances, South Korean midfielder Kim Bo-kyung could be key for Wigan while Billy Sharp will be looking to push on after his great performance mid-week.
