Wigan Athletic vs. Swansea City: Preview and TV schedule

Jan Kruger

Wigan will move out of the relegation zone if they can win at home to an out-of-form Swansea on Tuesday.

With other results going their way, Wigan Athletic host Swansea City on Tuesday with the knowledge that a victory would lift them out of the bottom three. They came from behind to beat West Brom 3-2 on the weekend, and a second consecutive victory would see them move above both Newcastle United and Norwich City -- albeit only on goal difference.

Facing Swansea now is as good a time as any. Michael Laudrup's team haven't ever managed to recover from their Capital One Cup celebrations, and they're currently on a seven match winless run. They've only won once since hammering Bradford at Wembley, and have fallen to ninth place.

The Swans haven't won away in the league all year, and will be without top scorer Michu, who'll probably miss the rest of the season with a hamstring injury. Roland Lamah is also sidelined, while Wigan will be without Jean Beausejour and Maynor Figueroa due to injury, and Antolín Alcaraz is still in doubt with a hamstring problem.
