Wigan had been due to play Oldham away on this particular Sunday but with them playing a Challenge Cup Semi Final instead, they were able to re-arrange this match against relegation battling Swinton that was played at Burnden Park in Bolton rather than Station Road. It wasn't a big score but still a comfortable victory for Wigan that took them up to second in the table behind Halifax and in a great position of having three games in hand to make up the three point gap.

Half Time: 

Swinton 0 Wigan 14



Referee:  Frank Tickle (St Helens)

Match had previously been Postponed on Sunday 26th January 1986 (3:00pm at Station Road) Due to Frozen Pitch
