All you need to know: Wigan Athletic v Norwich City

12 April 2019

Norwich City will be back on the road this weekend as they face Wigan Athletic on Sunday, April 14 (kick-off 12pm).

The Canaries go into the match on the back of a 2-2 draw against Reading on Wednesday, making it nine games unbeaten for Norwich.

Here’s all you need to know ahead of kick-off: 

Getting to the stadium

The postcode for the DW Stadium is WN5 0UZ. For directions from Carrow Road, CLICK HERE.

For fans travelling to the away supporters’ car park 1, follow the Sat Nav to WN5 0UN. Parking costs are £5 for a car or motorbike, £10 for a minibus and £20 for a coach. Where possible, coaches should be pre-booked or DW Stadium staff notified.

GMPT/ South Lancs Travel operate a circular 644 service to and from Wigan bus station which has several stops on Robin Park Road – a two-minute walk from the stadium.

Wigan is served by North Western station on the East Coast Mainline with frequent services to Preston, Birmingham and London on Virgin Trains.

Due to the number of supporters traveling to Wigan on our coaches, the Club strongly advises fans to make alternative parking arrangements as there is very limited parking space at Carrow Road. Additional parking can be found at the NCP pay and display car park on Lower Clarence Road at a cost of £7. The post code for this car park is NR1 1HD. Alternatively you can be dropped off outside the Holiday Inn Hotel on Carrow Road.

On arrival at the DW Stadium, fans will need to make their way to the North Stand.

Fans are reminded that it’s an offence to carry any non-permitted items into the stadium. Items include glass bottles, cans, fireworks, flares, smoke bombs, air horns, or any other items which could cause injury or disrupt the match. The stadium staff and/or police will take action against anyone found carrying such items.

Ticket information

Tickets are sold out for the game, with 5,300 City fans making the trip.

Meet the opposition

Wigan currently sit just above the relegation zone on 41 points, just two ahead of Rotherham United who sit in the bottom three.

The Lactics have won one of their last five matches, beating Bolton Wanderers 5-2 on March 16, with goals from Joe Garner, Gavin Massey, Nick Powell, Leon Clarke and Michael Jacobs.

Other recent results have seen them draw with Brentford and Bristol, before losing 2-1 to Hull City last time out, with a header from Jordy de Wijs in the 89th minute sealing the win.

Manager Paul Cook was appointed in May last year, returning to the club where he made his debut as a player.

Wigan’s top two goal-scorers are Joe Garner and Nick Powell who have both netted seven so far this season, with Garner contributing one assist and Powell six.

The last time the two sides played each other was back in September, when Mario Vrancic struck an 86th minute winner from the penalty spot.
