Wigan Athletic are the Alex's latest test in Sky Bet League One, with David Artell's men looking to secure back-to-back wins following their first three points of the season against MK Dons last time out.
Following last weekends postponement, the Alex have fallen into the relegation zone after three games. Whilst today's visitors currently sit in 11th with two wins in their previous two league games.
