Wigan Athletic will face Crewe Alexandra on Sunday - Sky Bet League One

The English Football League One continues this weekend and will see Crewe Alexandra host Wigan Athletic at the Alexandra Stadium on Sunday.

Crewe Alexandra were beaten 2-0 by Sheffield Wednesday last time out and will feel they deserved more from the game. Club captain Chris Porter spurned a chance to level the scores for the hosts as he missed a late first-half penalty kick.

The Alex sit bottom of the league table with just 15 points from 22 games. They will now be looking to return to winning ways on Sunday.

Wigan Athletic, on the other hand, are flying high at the moment. They picked up a 3-2 away win over Oxford United last weekend after initially surrendering a two-goal lead. They are now unbeaten in their last 12 games across all competitions.

Wigan Athletic sit second in the League One table with 45 points from 21 games. They are just two points behind Rotherham United at the top of the table with a game in hand.
