Wigan (h) Preview

Next up for the Reds is another home match, this time against relegation threatened Wigan Athletic. The Latics will have former Reds stiker Emile Heskey in their line-up.

This match last season saw the home side run out 3-0 winners with Peter Crouch finally scoring his first – and second – goal for the club after his summer signing.

The away fixture this season saw another emphatic win for Rafa Benitez’s team. Craig Bellamy was on the scoresheet twice in a 4-0 win at the JJB Stadium.
