TVOS gives us the stats for our visit to Wigan Athletic

* Eight of the previous 10 away fixtures took place at Springfield Park, with two at the DW Stadium

* Dale have won two of those 10 away matches, losing five times and drawing three

* Our last away win over The Latics came in December 1996 when Steve Whitehall’s fourth minute penalty proved to be the only goal of the game

* Dale’s best win versus Wigan is 3-0, which they achieved at Spotland in October 1980 thanks to two Dennis Wann goals and a late effort from Mark Hilditch

* In Dale’s 13 league and cup visits to Wigan, they have scored only four goals and failed to find the net eight times

* The Latics (10) have kept twice as many clean sheets as Dale (5) in the sides’ 20 league meetings

* The most common scoreline when Dale play Wigan is 2-0, which has been achieved eight times… by Wigan!

* Dale’s 10 league visits to Wigan have averaged only 1.70 goals per game, the joint-lowest rate (along with Cardiff City) of teams we have played away at least 10 times

* Our last four games at Wigan have all ended 1-0, with three of those wins going Latics’ way

* Dale’s leading appearance-maker against Wigan is Steve Whitehall, with nine games in league and cup football

* In the current squad, Jim McNulty (four) has made most appearances for Dale versus The Latics

Dale continued to look like relegation certainties when they lost 1-0 at the DW Stadium in February 2018.

Michael Jacobs netted the only goal after 12 minutes to keep up Wigan’s charge towards the League One title.
