Premier League: Wigan v West Bromwich Albion match preview
A look ahead to this weekend's Premier League fixture at the DW Stadium
The DW Stadium will play host to a clash between two sides with their tails up on Saturday when Wigan take on West Bromwich Albion.
After managing just one win from their first eight English Premier League matches this term, Wigan have sprung into life with consecutive wins in their past two games.
The last of those results, a victory over Tottenham at White Hart Lane, has been the highlight of their campaign to date.
West Brom have won three of their past six matches and although those triumphs have all come against the current bottom three – Reading, Queens Park Rangers and Southampton – the manner in which they have gone about their business has still been impressive.
KICK-OFF: Saturday, 3pm
PAST THREE MEETINGS…
Wigan 1 (McArthur) West Brom 1 (Scharner), Premier League, March 2012
West Brom 1 (Reid) Wigan 2 (Moses, Gomez), Premier League, December 2011
West Brom 2 (Odemwingie, Fortune) Wigan 2 (N’Zogbia, Watson), Premier League, February 2011
Wigan can claim their third win a row with victory on Saturday after consecutive wins against West Ham and Tottenham.

The last five fixtures between these two sides paint the picture of an even affair, as Wigan and West
During the 2003/2004 season, the Latics met the Baggies in the second tier. Geoff Horsfield solitary goal was enough for Wigan to win 1-0 but it was West Brom who were promoted that season, finishing second behind Norwich. Wigan ended the season in seventh; a place off the Play-Offs.
