Coming into the fixture, Swansea City sit in ninth place in the south division, after earning their first point last weekend thanks to a dramatic comeback against Crewe Alexandra, with Josh Thomas and Seb Dabrowski netting late goals as they came from two goals down.. 

Wigan, meanwhile, lie in second place in the north division after just winning one of their three fixtures, with the sole victory coming via a 5-0 win over Watford in their opening game.

PRE-MATCH VIEWS

Swansea City U21 coach Jon Grey: "We currently have players out injured and coming back, and maybe this game can be an opportunity to give other players a run.

"You'll see the same thing again, like in Crewe, we'll try and dominate the ball and play our way, we'll enforce our principles on the game.

"It's the boys' first time at the stadium this season, and hopefully, we can get a win in front of a home crowd."

PREVIOUS MEETING

Wigan Athletic 2 Swansea City 2 - April 28, 2002

Ten-man Swansea City Under-23s ended their Professional Development League campaign with a draw at Wigan Athletic, despite a brace from Cameron Evans.

The Swans had put themselves two goals up, Evans heading the Swans into the lead early, before the defender converted a second-half penalty to make it 2-0.

But the dismissal of Azeem Abdulai brought the Latics back into the game, with Charlie Hughes converting from two set-pieces to level matters for the hosts. The draw saw the Swans end the season on a five-game unbeaten streak.
