Wigan travel to Millwall with a chance to go top of League One if league leaders Burton Albion fail to beat Sheffield United.

Two of the in form sides meet tonight at the New Den, Millwall are in fifth place having won three of their last four games in the league.

Wigan have not lost in six and have closed the gap on the current League One leaders to just two points, and if Burton fail to win at Bramall Lane, Wigan will go top of League One, as they have the best goal difference in League One.

Both these clubs are looking for a return to The Championship after relegation the season before and look set to provide one of the most exciting clashes in League One tonight, as they strive for that instant return to the second tier of English football.

Here are THREE things we here at Football League World think you should look out for in tonight’s match……

1) Will Grigg

Wigan paid £900,000 for Grigg in the summer and he looks to be repaying that with his goals, hopefully leading them back into the Championship.

In just 22 games, he has scored 15 goals which have fired Wigan within touching distance of first place in League One.

If he stays fit there is no reason Grigg wont reach 20 goals this season and tonight he will no doubt have a significant say in the outcome of the match.

2) Max Power

The driving force in the centre of the park for Wigan, he has played in every league match for Athletic and scored five crucial goals in their bid for promotion from League One.

Power signed from Tranmere who were relegated out of the Football League at the end of the last season.

Few thought Power would have the impact on the Wigan side that he clearly has.

Millwall need to find a way of keeping Power out of the game or Wigan will get into a rhythm and dominate the middle of the park and then there will only be one winner.

3) Gregory, Morison and O’Brien

Millwall’s front three are the most deadly in the League One, they have scored 35 goals this season between them.

Gregory 14, Morrison with 12 and O’Brien with 9 and if Millwall can sort our some of their of defensive frailties they can be a real force in this division.

The deadly trio can play in an number of combinations and unless Wigan’s defence are at 100%, Millwall could stop them from reaching the summit of League One.
