Monday's Sport: Sheffield United aiming to maintain promotion push

There's one Championship game on Monday evening when Wigan host Sheffield United, the World Darts Championship continues at Alexandra Palace and the UK horse racing comes from Kempton and Chelmsford City.

Kolo Toure takes charge of his first home game for the Latics when promotion-chasing Sheffield United go to the DW Stadium on Monday night.

Blades face Toure's Latics

What: Wigan v Sheffield United
Where: DW Stadium, Wigan
When: 20:00, Monday 19th December 2022
How to watch: Sky Sports Main Event/Football
Odds: Wigan 29/10, draw 12/5, Sheffield United 1/1

Wigan resumed their second tier campaign with a 1-1 draw at Millwall last weekend but they remain in the bottom three in the Championship, level on points with Blackpool in 22nd place and two adrift of Hull City, who currently sit just above the relegation zone.

The Blades, in contrast, are second, two points ahead of Blackburn directly below them but six behind leaders Burnley.

Paul Heckingbottom's side will be after three points to close the gap at the top with an away win 1/1 in the Full Time Result Market. Wigan are 29/10 for victory, the draw in the Full Time Result market is 12/5.

Day five at the darts

Monday is day five of the PDC World Championship as the darts action continues before Christmas at Alexandra Palace.

There are three first round matches scheduled in the afternoon session from 12:30 and a round two clash between Jose de Sousa and Simon Whitlock before four more ties in the evening session from 19:00.

The highlight of the day could be the last clash scheduled when 2021 champion Gerwyn Price, who is 6/1 To Win Outright, takes on Luke Woodhouse.

Price is 1/8 in the Match Winner market, Woodhouse is the 5/1 outsider.

Three race meetings set to go ahead

Kempton and Chelmsford City are the venues for Monday's horse racing after the cards at Lingfield and Musselburgh were abandoned due to a frozen tracks.

There are seven contests at Kempton (12.50-3.55), while Chelmsford City’s evening card starts at 5.30 with the seventh and final race from there due off at 8.30.

There's also a bonus from Ireland as Punchestown hosts the re-scheduled John Durkan Memorial Chase (2.10) where ante-post Cheltenham Gold Cup favourite Galopin Des Champs is 1/3 to begin his season with a win in the 2m4f Grade 1 for Willie Mullins. 

His main rival looks to be the Joseph O'Brien-trained Fakir D'oudairies at 4/1, winner of the Melling Chase at Aintree over this trip in the spring.
