Dismal Leeds Whimper Out Of Promotion Race
Garry Monk's side know the game is already up in the battle for the play-offs after a dire recent collapse.
We saw yesterday with Sunderland how having relegation confirmed can almost have a cathartic effect. The same could happen with Wigan, who are a good price at 7/4 (BetVictor) to leave the Championship on a high.
In their favour is that Leeds may arrive in even more disconsolate mood after crashing out of the play-off picture with some dreadful recent results. Garry Monk’s boys had looked in great shape before losing at home to Wolves and away to Burton recently.
In contrast the Latics have gone down heroically in front of their owns. They have taken seven points from their last three games at the DW Stadium.
