Seeking to move to the top of the EFL League One standings, Wigan Athletic play host to Accrington Stanley at the DW Stadium on Tuesday.

The visitors, meanwhile, are without a win in each of their last seven games on the road and will head into the game looking to end this dry spell.

With 80 points from 38 games, Wigan Athletic are currently second in the EFL League One standings, level on points with Rotherham United.

Meanwhile, Accrington Stanley failed to find their feet last time out as they bottled a two-goal lead twice before settling for a 4-4 draw with Cheltenham Town.

They have now failed to taste victory in each of their last four games, losing twice and claiming two draws in that time.

With 51 points from 40 games, Accrington Stanley are currently 14th in the league table, level on points with Cambridge United and Cheltenham Town.
