WIGAN Athletic’s 2014/15 Sky Bet Championship fixture list has been revealed with Reading first up at the DW Stadium.

The new campaign will get underway on August 9 when the Royals come to town before Uwe Rosler then takes his side to Charlton a week later.

Wigan’s first midweek game will come on August 19 when they travel to recently-relegated Cardiff before home games against Blackpool and Birmingham on the following Saturdays.

They will make the short trip to Blackburn on September 13 with the first game with local rivals Bolton coming on November 8 when Latics make the short journey to Horwich.

Uwe Rosler will come up against former side Brentford for the first time on October 18 at the DW Stadium with the reverse fixture coming on the final day of the season, scheduled to be on May 2.

Latics fans will take their annual fancy dress Boxing Day tradition to Leeds United in a Yorkshire-themed festive fixture list which also includes home games against Rotherham and Sheffield Wednesday.

Other notable fixtures include Blackpool (a) on February 28, Blackburn (h) on January 17 and Bolton (h) on March 21.

In the run in to the final game at Brentford, Wigan will also face Millwall (a) on April 14 before home games against Brighton (April 18) and Wolves (April 25).
