2018-19 Season Cards

Our countdown to #FixtureReleaseDay on Thursday 21 June continues, with our latest instalment of Three of a Kind focusing on previous clashes with Swansea City.

Swansea City 1 Wigan Athletic 6 - Saturday 6 April 1991

Jimmy Carberry, Gary Worthington (2), Phil Daley, Phil Jones and Bryan Griffiths all struck as Latics recorded one of their highest scoring victories, 6-1 against Swansea City.

Bryan Hamilton talks through the action above during terrible conditions at Swansea's former home Vetch Field.

The victory was one of five in the final games of the 1990-91 campaign.

Swansea City:

Latics: Hughes, Worthington, Tankard, Atherton, Johnson, Langley, Jones, Carberry, Daley, Powell (Appleton), Griffiths (Nugent)

Wigan Athletic 3 Swansea City 2 - Saturday 25 January 1997

Leading goal scorer Graeme Jones twice gave Latics the lead at Springfield Park, but Latics had to rely on Ian Kilford for the crucial winner. Steve Torpey equalised in the second half after Jones' opener in the first, before a John Pender own goal pegged Swansea City level again following Jones' second on 56 minutes.

Luckily for Latics, Kilford provided the key moment two minutes after Torpey's leveller, sealing a fourth consecutive Third Division victory in an excellent start to the calendar year.
