Wigan Athletic Prediction – Can Wigan rely once again on home form?

Sunday afternoon’s hosts, Wigan Athletic, headed into the international break on the back of a 1-0 defeat away at Sheffield Wednesday which became their fifth defeat from their 6 away matches to date, but they return to their DW Stadium for this clash where they’ve produced some encouraging results.

Wigan Athletic once again find themselves in familiar territory in the Championship as The Latics currently occupy 20th place in the second tier which has been largely influenced by their poor start away from home this season.

Wigan have lost 5 of their 6 away matches to date but a pretty solid home record of 3-1-1 6/4 includes impressive wins against Cardiff City, Charlton Athletic and Birmingham City as well as a point in a draw with Barnsley.

Wigan’s one defeat at home to date was a 2-0 loss to high-flying 2nd placed Leeds United which was understandable but The Latics have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 15 matches at home under manager, Paul Cook, who has made his Wigan side a hard team to beat at the DW Stadium.


Wigan Athletic v Nottingham Forest Over 2.5 goals

Nottingham Forest Prediction – Can Nottingham Forest go top?

Saturday’s results have seen Nottingham Forest drop down to 4th place in the Championship following wins for West Brom and Leeds United, but the visitors will have plenty of incentive to grab all three points in this Sunday’s clash at Wigan as it could take the Tricky Trees to the top of the Championship.

Prior to the international break, Nottingham Forest had put together an impressive 10-match unbeaten sequence which included winning 4 of their last 5 matches overall in the second tier with recent wins gained over Swansea City, Barnsley, Stoke City and Brentford.

Even more impressive is Nottingham Forest’s unbeaten start to the Championship season away from home as the visitors still remain unbeaten on the road with a solid looking away record of 3-3-0 9/6 which includes wins at Fulham, Swansea City and Stoke City.

Sabri Lamouche also has the likes of dangerous forwards Grabban (5 goals) and Lolley (3 goals) at his disposal as he looks for his side to extend their unbeaten start on the road at Wigan.

  • Wigan have lost just 1 of their last 15 matches at their DW Stadium
