Relegation and promotion on the line at the DW

There is a lot on the line at the DW Stadium on Wednesday evening, as the breathless Championship season comes to a close. With a 12-point deduction looming over them it looks most likely that anything but a win will relegate the Latics, after conceding an additional time equaliser against direct competitor Charlton Athletic on Saturday. Fulham have won five of their last six to give themselves an outside shot at automatic promotion, needing West Bromwich Albion to lose and Brentford to fail to win at home to rock bottom side Barnsley, along with winning in Wigan. Fulham are narrow favourites given they take up fourth spot in the table, but Wigan are on a great run themselves and will throw everything at the Cottagers.

Last time out

Scott Parker completes his first full season in management with his side still with an eye on automatic promotion, with the playoffs to fall back on. The fans would have wanted slightly more but it is still a return that commands respect. They entertained a mid-table Sheffield Wednesday side who also may have a points deduction enforced upon this season’s conclusion, racing into a 3-0 half time lead before taking their foot off the gas somewhat to win 5-3 with Harrison Reed receiving a second yellow card in additional time. Aleksandar Mitrovic notched a brace, leading the scoring charts, one goal ahead of Ollie Watkins, the Serbian is hungry to take the golden boot and will be a constant threat on Wednesday evening.

The Latics have kept 10 clean sheets in their last 12 outings but that did not stop them conceding twice against relegation scrapping Charlton who usually have the third least potent attacking contingent in the division, who have lost the services of Lyle Taylor before the resumption of play. A win could still see Paul Cook’s men relegated should Charlton and Luton Town do the same, they will leave no stone unturned in their survival bid.

Tale of two World Cup winners

Two key men to look out for in this one were world champions wearing the famous Three Lions jersey in England’s U20 triumph in 2017. Attacking midfielders Kieran Dowell and Josh Onomah go head-to-head in this encounter, both in fine form and with endeavours at either end of the table to attend to.

Onomah is more defensive minded yet has showed his worth in front of goal since the resumption of play, scoring two of his three goals this campaign. The younger of the two Kieran Dowell has bagged four in his last two games in his second Championship loan spell of the season from parent club Everton. Onomah migrated in London to Fulham on a permanent basis in the summer.

It is really tough to call, should Fulham stay in the game or get the opener we will see Wigan throw caution to the wind. Seeing goals look increasingly likely.
