Match preview

Two sides sitting at opposite ends of the Championship table are primed to lock horns at the DW Stadium on Monday, December 19th.

The clash in question will see a Wigan Athletic outfit battling against relegation act as hosts, in a showdown with promotion-chasing Sheffield United.

Starting with the former, Wigan, to their credit, will head into proceedings having showcased timely signs of life of late.

On the back of a stretch of six defeats from seven, the Latics, in their last two outings either side of the World Cup break, secured four points from an available six.

The first three came courtesy of what could prove to be a crucial 2-1 downing of relegation rivals Blackpool.

Then, in the club’s return to action last weekend, Kolo Toure’s first fixture on the bench saw Wigan emerge from a trip to Millwall with a credible share of the spoils.

Will Keane notched the Latics’ only goal of the day, en route to a 1-1 stalemate at The Den.

Such efforts, though, do not change the fact that, ahead of the final outing of the gameweek in England’s 2nd tier, Toure and co. sit 2nd from bottom in the table.

On the flip side of things, upcoming opponents Sheffield United sit 2nd in the standings, primed for a return to the top-flight as things stand.

This comes owing to a stellar stretch of results, dating back to late October.

After falling alarmingly off the pace amid the ongoing Championship promotion battle, the Blades have bounced back in a major way, to the tune of five wins from six.

The most recent arrived last weekend, in a meeting with Huddersfield Town at Bramall Lane.

A solitary strike on the part of Billy Sharp ultimately proved enough to guide Paul Heckingbottom’s hosts to a 1-0 victory, United’s 2nd on the trot.

Should they, in turn, go on to make it three victories on the spin on Monday night, then the Blades will find themselves back within three points of table-topping Burnley.

And we at 101 are backing precisely as much come the full-time whistle at the DW Stadium in 24 hours’ time.
