#FIXTURERELEASEDAY - LATICS FIND OUT WHEN THEY'LL FACE NORTH-WEST DERBIES WITH PRESTON NORTH END, BOLTON WANDERERS AND BLACKBURN ROVERS

21 June 2018

Latics face local rivals Preston North End, Bolton Wanderers and Blackburn Rovers in the 2018-19 Sky Bet Championship – find out when Paul Cook’s side go up against the trio here!

Latics’ eagerly anticipated 2018-19 Sky Bet Championship fixtures were announced at 9am on Thursday 21 June 2018.

As announced earlier, Latics will kick-off the campaign at home to Sheffield Wednesday at the DW Stadium with Paul Cook’s side keen to get off to a good start on their return to the second tier.

No doubt supporters’ eyes will have turned to some mouth-watering home and away clashes, though, with Latics set for six north-west derbies in 2018-19 as they are paired in the same division as Bolton Wanderers, Preston North End and Blackburn Rovers.

Preston North End

The first north-west derby of the season for Cook’s side will see Latics travel to Preston North End on Saturday 6 October.

It’s 14 years since Latics last won at Deepdale but Cook and his side had a habit of breaking records in 2017-18.

The return fixture at the DW Stadium takes place on Easter Monday (22 April).

Blackburn Rovers

Our first home north-west derby of the season will see Latics host Blackburn Rovers on Wednesday 28 November.

Rovers haven’t won on their last nine visits to the DW, their last victory coming in 2007.

Latics will also make a midweek trip to Ewood Park as they face Tony Mowbray’s side on Tuesday 12 March in Blackburn.

Bolton Wanderers

Latics make their return to the Macron Stadium on Saturday 1 December, just a few days after they host Blackburn at the DW Stadium.

We haven’t won on our last three visits to the Macron, something Cook and his side will no doubt look to change.

Bolton’s visit to the DW Stadium comes on Saturday 16 March, a few days after our trip to Blackburn Rovers.
