This was the first time that Central Park hosted the Christmas Derby Fixture. Previously all Boxing Day clashes had been at Knowsley Road with Central Park hosting the Good Friday Match. But the clashes alternated venues from this year onwards. Eric Ashton had kicked three penalty goals for Wigan in the first 25 minutes for a 6-0 lead that was held until half time. That was added to with another penalty early in the second half and that proved to be that. Saints hopes finally being dashed when they lost Duggie Greenall to a leg injury.
