Huddersfield Town continue their Sky Bet Championship season on Tuesday 13 September 2022 when they welcome Wigan Athletic to the John Smith’s Stadium; 7.45pm kick-off.

Both teams will come into this game after having their weekend fixtures posponed due to the sad passing of Her Majesty, The Queen Elizabeth II.

THE OPPOSITION

Wigan Athletic won the Sky Bet League One title for a fourth time last season and automatically gained promotion to the Championship, after narrowly avoiding relegation to League Two the previous season.

Managed by Leam Richardson, this is the Latics’ first season back in the Championship since they were relegated at the end of the 2019/20 season.

ONES TO WATCH

Jack Whatmough

The defender joined the Latics in the summer before the 2021/22 season after making over 100 appearances for Portsmouth FC. The 26-year-old played a key part in helping the Latics win the 2021/22 Sky Bet league One title and due to this was recognised with a number of individual awards, winning the Club’s Player of the Year award as well as being named in both the EFL and PFA Teams of the Season. The former England U18 International will be looking to reach the same achievements this season.

James McClean

The midfielder returned to the DW Stadium on an initial one-year deal in the summer of 2021, six years since leaving the Latics after catching the eye and transferring to Premier League side West Brom Albion in 2015. McClean spent three seasons with the Baggies before joining Stoke City and after collating over 300 appearances across the top-flight and championship, the 33-year-old brings the experience and quality he has gained back to Wigan Athletic.

Will Keane

After a brief loan spell with Wigan in 2013, Keane signed permanently for the Latics in 2020 from Ipswich Town. The striker has been the top goal scorer at the DW Stadium for two consecutive seasons and aiming to continue his run into his third season. The Manchester United Academy graduate was key in saving Wigan from relegation into League Two as well as helping them reach promotion last season. Over 80 appearances have been made and 38 goals have been scored in two seasons by the Republic of Ireland International.
