Wigan Athletic have announced that they will face Dundee United in a preseason friendly at the DW Stadium on Saturday July 27th, the game will have a 3pm kick-off

Speaking about the game Latics boss Owen Coyle said: ‘It’s going to be a good challenge for us before the start of the new season against a team I have fond memories of playing for.

‘Jackie McNamara is a very good young manager who I think is going to have a bright future in the game and at Tannadice, so to test ourselves against them is going to tell us a lot about where we are at that stage of the pre-season.

‘It’s also a chance for our fans to see how the team are progressing and how the new faces are fitting in ahead of the season, so their support I think will give the players a big lift before we face Barnsley on the opening day.’

Tickets are priced at £10.00 for adults and £5.00 for concessions
