- With Europa League commitments, an FA Cup run to the semi-final stage and the Community Shield last season Wigan played no fewer than 62 games. This is 14 more than the minimum number played with 46 league games and the two cup competitions.
- Uwe Rosler has the impressive record of a top six finish in his two season’s as a manager in England. Both were unsuccessful play-off campaigns with his Brentford side losing in the 2013 League 1 final against Yeovil and his Wigan side losing to QPR in the semi-finals of last year’s Championship play-offs.
- Wigan scored just 61 goals from their 46 games last season and the club’s top scorers were Jordi Gomez and loanee Nick Powell who both scored just 7 league goals.
- Wigan have an incredible record in the FA Cup in recent years. The Latics have not lost an FA Cup game in 90 minutes since January 2012.
