History of the Sheffield United v Wigan Athletic fixture

Sheff. Utd. are ready to welcome Wigan Athletic to Bramall Lane on Sunday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The The Blades are clearly on top, with a 57.14% success rate in the fixture.

The previous match played between the two at Bramall Lane was within the last three years, in January 2005, as the visitors ran out cosy 0-2 winners in a Championship match.
