Wigan Athletic v Tottenham Hotspur: Wigan seek revenge for horror show
Spurs have picked up just 18 points from a possible 42, have lost to Wolves twice and failed to beat the likes of Hull City and Aston Villa at home. Their saving grace is that those in and around them in the hunt for fourth spot have also been dropping points like confetti. But Redknapp will be demanding all three points this afternoon against a Wigan side that collapsed like a pack of cards earlier this season.
However, Wigan will have revenge on their mind following their horror show at the Lane and have drawn their last two home games – v Stoke City and Bolton Wanderers. Wigan have beaten the likes of West Ham and Chelsea at home but their last win on home soil was against Sunderland the week after the Spurs defeat.
Tottenham have only won at the DW Stadium once since Wigan entered the Premier League back in 2005 and a late Figueroa effort handed Wigan all three points in the corresponding fixture last year – their only win against Spurs home or away. There have been four draws between the sides in the past five seasons and this has all the makings of another one.
