Wigan Athletic Prediction

Wigan Athletic are unbeaten in their last two league matches in the Championship as they’ve recently gained all three points in a 2-1 home win over QPR and gained a point in a 1-1 draw away at Rotherham United on the weekend, so Paul Cook’s side are unlikely to be over-awed by a visit from struggling Stoke City on Wednesday night.

Indeed, although The Latics have recently suffered back-to-back defeats to Sheffield Wednesday and Nottingham Forest, these losses were both inflicted upon them away from home, while at the DW Stadium, Wigan have registered back-to0-back wins with the other victory being a 3-0 victory over Aston Villa.

Despite Wigan Athletic currently occupying a lowly 19th place in the Championship, their home record still stands at a reasonable looking 8-3-4 19/16 and along with Brentford and 13th placed Blackburn Rovers, The Latics possess the best home record out of all the teams sitting in the bottom half of the Championship.


Key-Facts – Wigan Athletic v Stoke City

  • Wigan possess the joint best home record in the bottom half of the Championship
  • Stoke City have lost 6 of their last 8 matches in the Championship
  • Stoke City have now gone 7 away matches without a win


Stoke City Prediction

We are currently watching an alarming fall from grace in the shape of Stoke City as the former Premier League club now sit in a very disappointing 17th place in the Championship with absolutely no hope now of making up the 12 point margin they find themselves adrift of Bristol City who occupy 6th place.

New manager, Nathan Jones, who left League One leaders, Luton Town to replace former boss Gary Rowett is now himself under increasing pressure to get results at the bet365 Stadium as his Stoke City side have now lost their last three league matches on the trot.

With his former club now six points clear at the top of League One, Jones must be wishing he’d stayed put at Kenilworth Road as recent defeats to Preston North End, Hull City and West Brom have seen Stoke City plummet down the league standings in the Championship.

The Potters have lost six of their last eight matches overall in the second tier, while away from home, the story doesn’t get much better as they’re without a win on their travels from their last seven attempts within a poor record of 2-8-5 16/23.

Betting Tips Verdict

Wigan hold a reasonable record at the DW Stadium and stand a great chance of getting something from this clash while another defeat for Stoke could see the end of Nathan Jones’s brief tenure with The Potters.
