Did you know… The first away side to win a competitive game at the DW Stadium was actually Wigan Athletic after a first round FA Cup tie against non-league Cambridge City took place there due to their ground be unsuitable to host the fixture. Wigan used the away dressing room, played in their away kit and won the game 2-0!
