Wigan Athletic will hope they won’t need them but the Football League has announced provisional dates for this season’s play-offs.

Gary Caldwell’s men look well on course for automatic promotion but, if they fail to hang on to a top two spot and finish between third and sixth, the club will face a two-legged tie before a Wembley trip.

The first League One play-off clash will be on Saturday May 14 with a 5.30pm kick-off. The second leg will take place the following Thursday, May 19, at 7.45pm.

The first leg of the second tie will take place on Sunday May 15 with a 12.15pm kick-off with the second leg the following Friday, May 20 at 7.45pm.

Should Latics reach the play-off final at Wembley, that will be on Sunday May 29 at 3pm.
