Following the automatic promotion of Championship winners Leeds, Fulham will be looking to follow in the same suit. The side will travel to the DW Stadium on the final day of the championship to play host to side Wigan. The match schedules for Wednesday with kickoff at 7:30 pm.
Fulham is still keeping their slim promotion hopes back to the Premier League after one year of no action. The side is currently fourth on the table with 80 points. The side is 10 points ahead of side Nottingham Forest and one point behind side Brentford.
Wigan Athletic, on the other hand, is facing mid-table struggles with rumors of possible disputes in the dressing room, causing a drift among the players. The side might clinch the second tier of English football, but there is a threat over the future of the club.
Wigan recently appealed 1-2 point reduction in the league. In case the appeal does not stand any water, the side might face relegation battles. The outcome of the appeal is not expected to be announced before the final day of the championship.
Fulham will have to go toe-toe with sides West Bro and Brentford on the final day to see who gets an automatic promotion with leaders Leeds United. Hence, there will be all guns blazing this Wednesday at the DW Stadium.
