Cold snap puts Wigan v Bolton clash in doubt as Latics hold pitch inspection

Wigan will hold an inspection of the pitch and ground to determine whether tonight's Barclays Premier League match at home to near-neighbours Bolton can go ahead.

Heavy snow in the north west over the weekend has made roads treacherous in the area, although the playing surface at the DW Stadium is believed to be playable.

However, there are safety concerns regarding the public parts of the ground and surrounding areas which are still covered in snow and ice.

The club hope to be able to make a decision by midday.
