Fulham vs. Wigan Athletic: Championship – Match Preview

Promotion favourites Fulham will be looking to move back into the play-off positions when they host Wigan on Friday.

Fulham have drawn three consecutive matches 1-1 to halt their progress.

Last time out they conceded late on away at Sheffield Wednesday, with Atdhe Nuhiu equalising in the third minute of stoppage time.

Wigan are unbeaten in third and secured an impressive 2-0 win at home to Charlton Athletic in their most recent fixture.

A double from centre back Che Dunkley saw them open up a three point advantage over the relegation zone.
