While only Huddersfield Town are keeping the Latics off the foot of the table, Sheffield United are chasing Burnley at the top.

After sacking Leam Richardson just 16 days after handing him a three-year contract extention last month, former Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool defender Kolo Toure has been handed his first managerial role at the DW Stadium.

The 120-time capped Ivory Coast defender guided his new team to an 1-1 draw away to Millwall in his first game in charge last weekend, with Will Keane’s opener cancelled out by n Flemming’s goal before the break.

Considering that they were playing away from home, Wigan impressively dominated possession with 58% of the ball at The Den, suggesting Toure will be focusing on improving his side’s ball retention as they look to avoid dropping straight back down to League One.

That may prove difficult against a side as accomplished as Sheffield United on Monday, with Toure likely to be content to see his team avoid defeat once again.

Although they did win their final game before the Championship season was paused due to the World Cup in Qatar, the break arguably came at a good time for Sheffield United given the amount of injuries they had.

The Blades were comfortable when dispatching bottom-placed Huddersfield Town 1-0 at Bramall Lane in their first game back last weekend, with Billy Sharp scoring his 116th league goal for his boyhood club.

With league leaders Burnley defeating Middlesbrough 3-1 on Saturday, Paul Heckingbottom’s side travel to Wigan six points behind Vincent Kompany’s side, so they will certainly be hoping to halve that deficit while restoring breathing space ahead of the chasing pack within the playoff spots.

Having won without conceding in each of their last three matches on the road, Heckingbottom will be confident of doing exactly that, particularly at such an early stage of Wigan’s development under Toure.

Wigan Athletic Team News

Wigan will remain without Jason Kerr, who is unlikely to play again this season after sustaining an ACL injury, while Ryan Nyambe and Tom Pearce remain doubts due to knee and ankle isssues respectively.

Toure is unlikely to make any changes from the side that drew away to Millwall in his first game in charge.

Sheffield United Team News

Sheffield United are expected to travel without Rhys Norrington-Davies, Jack O’Connell, John Fleck, Daniel Jebbison and Rhian Brewster, who are all hoping to return to fitness in the coming weeks.

Oli McBurnie and Sander Berge came off the bench against Huddersfield last weekend, and may be deemed fit enough to start on Monday.
