Wigan return to the Championship after winning League One last season with 92 points from 46 games. They were strong at both ends of the table having been joint top-scorers and having the joint second best defence.

Leam Richardson is the man in the dugout and has done a good job since taking over as boss in August 2020. The Latics have chosen to keep faith with the bulk of the squad that got them promoted and their man to watch is Will Keane who grabbed 26 goals last season.

Preston remain in the middle third of the Championship having finished in 13th place last season with 52 goals scored and 56 against. If North-End want to climb the table they need to improve their road form winning just seven times on their travels in 2021/22.

Ryan Lowe is the man in the dugout for the Lilywhites having taken over from Frankie McAvoy in December. Emil Riis grabbed 16 goals for the Lancashire outfit last season while the loan signing of Troy Parrott should add more of a goal threat.
