The two clubs are fighting at opposite ends of the table with Millwall in tenth looking to secure a Premier League play-off spot, while Wigan find themselves three points below 21st place, a position which would secure them from relegation.

Wigan have failed to win any of their past three matches, while Millwall ended a four-match winless streak last week with a victory over Preston North End. 

Wigan are yet to report their financial statements for 2018/19, but despite their positions in the league, the two clubs are paying similar wage bills, with Millwall's total expenditure of £16.9 million last season amounting to just £5.2 million more than what Wigan spent in 2017/18.
