This match was the start of Wigan permanently switching all home games to Sunday Afternoons. A "much improved Oldham" kept close to Wigan in the first half but two tries in two minutes in the second half saw Wigan get the victory. The win left Wigan six points off top of the table but they had five matches in hand on leaders Featherstone and three in hand on second and third placed Salford and Widnes.
