21 February ~ Wigan visit Brighton this weekend with both trying to keep up with the fight for a play-off spot in the Championship.

They were around the play-off positions all season, but a 1-0 win at the Goldstone Ground for the Seagulls pushed them to an automatic promotion place, while Wigan finished seventh and out of contention.
