West Brom have failed to win any of their last four matches against Wigan (D2, L2).
The teams have met eight times in the Premier League – Wigan have won four times, West Brom two, with two draws.
The Baggies have kept clean sheets in only two of their 14 league encounters against Wigan.
Against Tottenham, Ben Watson became the first Englishman to score a Premier League goal for Wigan in 2012. Aylesbury-born Emerson Boyce has also scored for the Latics this term, but he represents Barbados at international level.
Wigan have kept two clean sheets in their last 11 league games – both of which were away from home (at Southampton and Tottenham).
The Latics have won Premier League games away at Arsenal and Tottenham this calendar year. Manchester United and Chelsea are the only other sides to have managed that feat.
West Bromwich Albion
Steve Clarke’s side have kept four clean sheets – the joint highest tally in the division.
They have scored just three away league goals this season, the joint-lowest in the Premier League.
They have claimed 15 of their 17 points on home turf.
The Baggies are looking for their first Premier League away win of the season and have won only one of their last 10 away league games (1-0 at Liverpool in April).
