30 April 2016

Wigan Athletic are back in the Sky Bet Championship!

  • Wigan Athletic are back in the Sky Bet Championship after Blackpool win.
  • Victory at Blackpool means only Burton Albion can catch Latics, with hugely inferior goal difference.
  • Chris McCann, Yanic Wildschut double and late Will Grigg goal push Latics over the line.

Wildschut 70,72
Grigg 85

Latics are back in the Sky Bet Championship at the first attempt after securing the point they needed to guarantee that 3rd placed Walsall can no longer mathematically catch Gary Caldwell’s team, with an emphatic 4-0 victory over Blackpool at Bloomfield Road.

Latics will have to wait until the conclusion of this afternoon’s match between Burton Albion and Gillingham, to see if they can make it a double celebration and secure the title.

Second half goals by Chris McCann, two from Yanic Wildschut and a late addition from Sky Bet League One's leading goal scorer Will Grigg captured a historic day for the club!

WE ARE GOING UP!
