Cheltenham’s winless run in League One stretched to nine matches on Saturday afternoon when they lost 1-0 away to Rotherham United, with the defeat following three straight draws against Oxford United, Burton Albion and Charlton Athletic.
A record of seven wins, 10 draws and 10 defeats from 27 matches has seen the reigning League Two champions collect 31 points, which has left them in 18th position in the table, just four points clear of the relegation zone.
Cheltenham have not been victorious in League One since beating Gillingham on November 23, but they have thus far managed to stay out of the relegation zone, which is currently occupied by Morecambe, Crewe Alexandra, Gillingham and Doncaster Rovers.
Michael Duff‘s side have won five, drawn five and lost four of their 14 home league games this season to collect 20 points, but they will be coming up against a Wigan side with the best away record in League One this term, collecting 31 points from 12 matches on their travels.
Cheltenham will be without the services of Sean Long, who picked up an injury in the early stages of the 1-0 defeat to Rotherham last time out, which will open the door for Charlie Raglan to start this weekend.
The home side have no other injury concerns from their loss at Rotherham last time out, and the visitors will have been relatively pleased with their performance against their promotion-chasing opponents.
Head coach Duff is expected to keep faith with a 3-5-2 formation, with Alfie May, who has netted seven times in League One this season, being joined in the final third of the field by Dan Nlundulu.
As for Wigan, head coach Richardson rung the changes for the EFL Trophy clash with Arsenal Under-21s on Tuesday, but there will be a more familiar look to the side for this match.
Gwion Edwards and Stephen Humphrys came into the XI against Gillingham in the league last time out, while there was also a debut for Graeme Shinnie, and all three players should retain their spots for this match.
