Summary:l

Although it was Easter, this game was in doubt up until kick off due to heavy snowfall. A "motor sweeper" cleared the pitch to get the game on but the conditions were poor. It also affected the crowd with just 10,000 attending the game. Wigan didn't have it all their own way but got the much needed victory.
