PRE-MATCH BUILD UP
It’s a battle of two in-form teams this afternoon in Sky Bet League One, as Paul Cook’s Wigan Athletic take on Steve Lovell’s Gillingham at the DW Stadium.
Latics are unbeaten in 15 matches in all competitions, 10 have which have earned them the leading spot in the league table, whilst the Gills arrive at the DW unbeaten in their last eight games, rocketing them up through mid-table.
Cook’s men are fresh off the back of an impressive 2-0 victory over Premier League West Ham United in the fourth round of the Emirates FA Cup, earning Latics a tasty tie against top flight leaders Manchester City later this month.
Lovell’s Gills have won their last four matches, including a 2-1 victory at home against Fleetwood Town last Saturday.
