Wigan’s League One promotion party was postponed after Portsmouth came from 2-0 down to beat the leaders 3-2 but the Latics are 1.42/5 to claim the title in the final round of matches on Saturday.
Second-placed Rotherham United could have gone top but were held 1-1 by fellow promotion hopefuls Sunderland on a dramtic night which also saw Sheffield Wednesday come from behind to beat Fleetwood 3-2 and climb to fourth. The Black Cats and the Owls are both odds-on to reach the promotion play-offs by finishing in the top six.
On Saturday, Wigan go to Shrewsbury – a team that are 17th in the 24-team table, and appear to have little to play for except the opportunity to throw a spanner in the promotion race works.
Rotherham, meanwhile, travel to 21st-placed Gillingham, a match the Millers would be expected to win. But the Gills are fighting to avoid relegation and strange things can happen on final days of the season.
