As we open the new season, history is on our side.

Wigan have lost the last four Championship ties against us and the three league meetings at this stadium give us the edge with two victories.

We have also only lost two of our last ten opening day round of matches with six wins returned and two draws.

It’s going to be a big year for Luhukay and Sheffield Wednesday and despite appearing to be under a transfer embargo owing to Financial Fair Play, some in the fanbase are even talking about a possible run for promotion once again.

Three points today will only enhance those calls.
