Not content with playing five games in the last ten days, Wigan and Broughton re-arranged this match postponed earlier in the season for January 2nd. It was a big game as well between two in form teams lying second and third in the table. Broughton were reported to have wasted several chances before Wigan took the half time lead with Percy Williams' try being converted by Johnny Thomas for a 5-0 lead. Jim Sharrock and Thomas both missed goal attempts to extend that lead second half before Lance Todd scored an unconverted try for 8-0. In the end the try for Broughton by Tighe was consolation and Wigan hung out to earn a scrappy, but yet important, win that left them strongly holding second place in the table. This would prove to be Wigan's last visit to Wheater's Field before Broughton moved to "The Cliff" ground in the following season.
