Here is our away guide ahead of this Wednesday night's clash at Wigan Athletic.

Wigan Athletic Football Club
Loire Drive, Wigan,
Mileage: 102 miles

The Latics play their home fixtures at the DW Stadium, which was opened in 1999.

Away fans are located in the 5,500-seater north stand at one end of the stadium, although the stand now only holds 4,800 fans to avoid overcrowding on the concourse.

The journey will roughly take just over two hours, and the quickest way to get there would be to follow the M180 from Scunthorpe to the M18 heading towards Leeds, Goole and Hull. After six miles on the M18, merge onto the M62 and remain on it for 60 miles, before merging onto the M60. At junction 15, use the left lane to take the M61 exit to the M6. Leave the M6 at Junction 26 and follow the signs for Wigan town centre along the A577. After around two miles you will pass an Aldi store on your left before reaching a large a roundabout (which is the junction with the A49). Keep in the left lane and then at the lights (with the SCS Sofa and Bed store in front) take the left hand filter lane by the large Asda superstore towards Robin Park. Continue straight on passing the Red Robin pub on your right. At the next roundabout go straight across and at the next traffic lights turn right into Stadium Way.

There is a large car park at the stadium, specifically for the use of away supporters, which costs £5 per car or motorbike, £10 for mini buses and £20 for coaches.

It will take you around two-and-a-half hours to get a train from Scunthorpe to Wigan, and you will need to make just the one change at Manchester Piccadilly.

If you left on the daily 16:08 train you would arrive at Wigan North Western at 18:43, with an hour to spare before kick-off. The train before that takes almost three hours and leaves at 15:08, arriving into the same Wigan station at 18:06 – but you would have to make two changes for this one (Manchester Piccadilly and Wigan Wallgate). When you arrive at Wigan North Western station follow signs for the stadium.

The concourses are spacious and the facilities are good. There are screens showing the early kick-off game and a betting outlet. Food on offer includes a range of Hollands Pies, including Chunky Steak, Meat & Potato and a Cheese Pie (all £2.40).
