This was a tough ask for Wigan who faced Oldham in the Play Off Semi Finals at their Watersheddings ground, where they hadn't lost all season. The absences of Jim Sharrock, Jim Leytham and Dick Silcock was also a blow to Wigan but they did compete well. Oldham scored a "lucky try" from Benyon to take a 5-0 lead after Ferguson converted. Wigan's only first half respond was a penalty goal from Johnny Thomas but they levelled the game with an unconverted try from Joe Miller. But a try from Tyson put Oldham back ahead 10-5 after Ferguson converted and he later kicked a penalty goal from the half way line to put Oldham into the final.
