Wigan is approaching a difficult period with 3 matches in the next 10 days in FA Cup and League One. They also played 4 matches in the last 15 days, and fatigue and injury problems are bigger day by day. Coach Richardson can’t count on Whatmough (16/1), Naylor (14/0), Wats (13/0), Cousins (11/0), Tilt (6/2), and Bennet. In the EFL Trophy, they are without any chance to qualify to the next round, and heavy rotations are expected. Shrewsbury for sure will rest some key players but will want to continue their good form and raise their self-confidence.
