After a string of bad results in the Championship, Burton Albion will be looking to get all three points when they host Wigan Athletic at the Pirelli Stadium in the 26th round of the Championship.
The hosts have been in a very unstable state in recent weeks. The team have lost four of their last 5 league games. The team have collected 3 points from a possible 15 in their last 5 league games. Their last game was against Preston North End away from home where they lost 1-0.
Burton are sitting in the 21st place in the Championship table with 25 points from 6 wins, 7 draws and 12 losses. They have scored 26 goals and conceded 34 since the start of the season.
Luke Varney is likely to be sidelined for four to six weeks with a punctured lung suffered on his debut, while fellow forward Will Miller is struggling with a hamstring injury. Burton have also been afflicted by a sickness bug and had only 12 fit players in training earlier in the week but could hand first starts to recent signings Luke Murphy and Marvin Sordell.
The visitors are one of the few teams that are in worse form than the hosts. Wigan have been in a really weak form in recent weeks. The team have collected only one point from a possible 15 in their last 5 league games. Their last game was against Huddersfield Town at home where they lost 1-0.
Wigan are sitting in the 23rd place in the league table with 19 points from 4 wins, 7 draws and 14 losses. They have scored 20 goals and conceded 31 since the start of the campaign.
Midfielder Nick Powell could be out for the rest of the season after aggravating a long-standing hamstring problem. The Latics have a long list of other definite and possible absentees, which also includes the likes of Andy Kellett, Craig Morgan, Luke Garbutt, David Perkins, Kyle Knoyle and Reece James, among others.
