LEADING figures at Wigan Council have seen Wigan Athletic off to Wembley ... and backed them to be returning for the final next month.

The Leader, Lord Peter Smith, deputy leader Coun David Molyneux and cabinet member for leisure, Coun Chris Ready paid a visit to the DW Stadium this week to show their support before the squad heads down to the capital today.

For lifelong supporters and season ticket holders Couns Molyneux and Ready, the day is set to be an extra special one. Coun Molyneux said: “Whatever the result this weekend, there can be no doubt Wigan punches well above its weight when it comes to sport.”
