Former Charlton Athletic and West Ham United boss Alan Curbishley feels Wigan Athletic will be relegated this season.

Curbishley wrote in the Daily Mail: "I look at the teams down there at the moment, and Wigan especially, is it finally their year? They’ve survived so many times in the last games of the season. And I’ve just got a feeling this FA Cup run is going to cause them a problem; they’re a game behind the rest of the league at the moment, when they play their semi-final they’re possibly going to be two games behind.

"If they get to the final they’re going to have to make up at least two or three games when there are only eight games left.

{It’s going to take an emotional toll, we’ve seen it before with teams getting to a cup final and going down, I’m just wondering if it’s a bit too much for them. They’ve still got to win games. Having games in hand is nice, but you’ve got to win them.

"When I look at the table I think Reading, QPR and Wigan are the three who are going to go down."
