That put's them bottom on 38pts, 5 points from safety. Probably worth a shot based on their current form WDWWW

+1 and it isn't an automatic 12 point deduction anyway.

The sanction will be applied at the end of this season if the Latics, 14th in the Championship, finish outside the bottom three after 46 games.

Should Wigan finish in the relegation zone, the penalty will be applied during the 2020-21 season instead.

Given our dismal form currently a major boost.

"The English Football League has said Wigan will be deducted 12 points."


Lower West Automatic 12 point deduction.


Last time I checked the table, they're still 14th on 50 points.

Mandatory 12 point deduction but timing thereof to be decided at the end of the season depending on where Wigan finish in the table. Either way it looks as though they have unfortunately booked themselves one of the three relegation slots.

A poorly supported Club,with low fan base.They have been punching above their weight for years.Could not believe their level of recent results compared to us.However feel sorry for their 5000 (or so)die hard fans .Wonder what pushed them over the edge,Covid or were they in trouble before March.Whose next ?

I reckon form goes out of the window when this happens, being effectively bottom will increase the pressure 10 fold as they looked safe. Still to play Brentford and Fulham too

Will they still be deducted the 12 points if they finish more than 12 points clear of the drop zone?

I'd assume yes. That's how the penalty would normally be applied irrespective of league position (say, had they gone into administration in September). The punishment is the points deduction, not relegation - the deduction is just delayed if they are relegated without it.

You would assume wrong.

It’s no punishment if at this stage they lose the points and avoid relegation.

Doesn`t that defeat the object?, they could 20 points clear, go into administration and then no punishment. my take on it is if they avoid relegation they will start next season minus 12 points.

To be fair, it IS an automatic 12 point deduction. The only issue is WHEN it's applied
