Wigan Athletic seal immediate return to the Championship

21 April 2018

Wigan Athletic have secured their place in the Championship next term, bouncing back at the first time of asking.

Relegated in 2016/17, the Latics dusted themselves down and clinched their return to the second tier with a thumping 4-0 triumph at Fleetwood Town.

With three games to spare, Paul Cook's side have now set a club record for most goals scored (86) in a season, while 26 clean sheets is also a new record for the club.

The next target will be to fend off Blackburn Rovers and clinch the League One title.
