The positive momentum pushing on Wigan Athletic's stunning run of form came to a grinding halt on Wednesday afternoon, when new broke that the Latics went into administration, with a 12-point penalty set to be applied should the club finish outside of the bottom three - or next season if they're already down.
Wigan will look to seize the moment and push on in spite of this major setback, and get as many points under their belts as possible over the coming matches. Here's our round-up of the latest Championship relegation battle stats, including those of Wigan's 3-0 win over Stoke City.
1. Birmingham City 0 - 3 Huddersfield - Kachunga thrives amid set-piece blitz
All of the Terriers' goals came from set-pieces, but Elias Kachunga still played a blinder. He scored a goal, made two key passes and won four aerial duels. The less said about the eight unsuccessful touches the better, mind. Photo: Lewis Storey
2. Birmingham City 0 - 3 Huddersfield - Wonderkid's threat nullified
Jude Bellingham looks set for a big-money move this summer, after breaking into the Blues' side at the age of just 16. The Terriers kept him quiet on this occasion, though, and robbed him of possession five times. Photo: Catherine Ivill
3. Leeds United 1-1 Luton Town - Hatters brutal in the air
Notably, the Hatters - quite appropriately - won twice as many headers than their opponents. On an individual level, Sonny Bradley's four tackles, four clearances, and three interceptions were particularly noteworthy. Photo: George Wood
4. Leeds United 1-1 Luton - Leeds lack cutting edge
The Whites dominated the Hatters for most of the game, with over 75% the possession. However, a lack of clinical finishing once again cost them dearly, with just one of their 23 shots finding the back of the net. Photo: Alex Pantling
