Wigan Athletic have confirmed that the DW Stadium pitch is to be relayed over the coming weeks.
After a very harsh winter and the intense usage in a short period the decision has been made this afternoon (Friday) that the current surface will be replaced.
Roberto Martinez, Latics manager, said: "It's clear that the surface at the DW has become a problem over the past few weeks. I would never use that as an excuse because it's the same for both teams, but we have to try and do what we can and I am delighted that we have been able to take this action swiftly as a club."
