Wigan Athletic have failed in their appeal to get a 12-point deduction for going into administration overturned.
The Latics will play in Sky Bet League One next season with the deduction relegating them from the Championship.
An EFL statement confirmed the decision:
An independent arbitration panel has ruled that Wigan Athletic’s 12-point deduction for entering administration last month will stand after dismissing the club’s appeal against the sporting sanction. The decision of the arbitration panel is final and legally binding.
It was also revealed that “detailed talks” with potential buyers over the sale of the club were to continue this week. Boss Paul Cook quit last week and has already been linked with some jobs in the Championship.
