Wigan enter administration

Wigan have entered administration.  If the club is relegated in the normal way, the 12 point deduction will be applied next season in League One.  Otherwise, as seems more likely, the deduction will take place after the final Championship game is played and the table adjusted accordingly:

The club hopes to complete its fixtures.  A buyer is being urgently sought.

A 12 point deduction would put the Lactics on 38 points, eight points behind Charlton.

Historian Gareth Millward commented:
'This the Wigan Athletic that for over decade spent money it clearly didn't really have to artificially inflate itself to the Premier League and, now they don't have Whelan's money, thinks it could keep spending like a Championship club when they're really L1/L2?'
