Wigan were second in the table and comfortably inside the "Top 4" play off positions but Saints were in fifth place and desperately needing the win here in this re-arranged midweek fixture to get towards the play offs. Failure here would prove costly and their season would fall backwards following this loss.

Attendance:l 25,000
Note:l Match was previously postponed on Boxing Day Monday 27th December 1948 (2:15pm) due to Frozen Pitch
