Gary Caldwell shares Wigan masterplan ahead of Leeds showdown
By Harvey Byrne
Gary Caldwell has revealed he’s told his Wigan side that they “have” to beat Leeds after drawing with Burton on Saturday.
The Lancashire outfit are preparing to travel to Elland Road for a clash against the Yorkshire giants on Tuesday evening.
The 2013 FA Cup winners are currently in the relegation zone of the Championship and Caldwell has told his side that they must beat Leeds after drawing 0-0 against the Brewers at the weekend.
“I said to the players that if they draw their home games, they have to win away from home and we’ve put that on ourselves now to go to Leeds and get a win,” said Caldwell ahead of the clash to the official Wigan website. “This turns into a good point if we do that.”
Leeds will be keen to regain their form after suffering two losses in their last three league encounters.

They will look at a home tie against Caldwell’s struggling side as the perfect opportunity to earn a win and push on from their 13th position in the Championship table.
However, Garry Monk’s outfit will have to be careful of the one bright light of Wigan’s season in attacker Will Grigg, who has bagged six goals in 13 appearances in all competitions.
