PREVIEW

Latics head to Bristol Rovers aiming to take their promotion party to new heights as Paul Cook's men look to strengthen their grip on the Sky Bet League One title against Darrell Clarke's Gas.

The 4-0 victory away at Fleetwood Town on Saturday sealed Latics' place in the Sky Bet Championship for 2018/19, and at the same time the quartert of well taken finishes lifted Latics' away goal tally up to 50, the highest in English football.

Opponents Bristol Rovers sit 12th in the table, nine points above the relegation zone with three games to play, meaning Clarke's side have all but mathematically secured their place in League One for next season.

The trip to the Memorial Stadium is Latics' penultimate away game of the season.
