Their administrators are "quietly optimistic that permission will be given" by the EFL for them to play on Sunday. The EFL are meeting this week to decide.
What team they are able to put out is another matter, seems to be a case of whoever hasn't been flogged yet mixed in with the U23s.
Hopefully, if they are allowed to play, we could grab another confidence boosting win a la Bolton last year.
Wigan don't play Peterborough until 20th October, plenty of time to put a squad together

I had sort of lost interest in their financial situation after we played them, but just looked up the latest and if anything it's gotten worse for them.
The takeover by Bassini that was "nearly complete" has gone silent, players still not paid and able to walk away from their contracts from Sunday, fans having to pay for official travel directly with the coach provider, and the PFA have been unable to speak to the owner who is presumed to be abroad.
Their problems are being mirrored along the A58 at Bury, whose players are also still unpaid for March.
There is a very real chance that at least one of those clubs will not exist next season.
I know Evans is far from the owner we would choose in an ideal world, but it does make you realise things could actually be a lot worse. At least we know we will have a club to support next season.
