Wigan Athletic Preview – Can Latics jump into top two?

4th placed Wigan Athletic could find themselves in one of the automatic promotion spots in League One if the hosts grab all three points against visitors, Shrewsbury Town, on Wednesday night at the DW Stadium.

Wigan bring a four-match unbeaten run into this English third tier fixture which includes three wins against Burton Albion, Fleetwood Town and most impressive of all, a 2-1 win away at 6th placed Plymouth Argyle which has helped lift The Latics into the play-off pack.

The hosts will have also been relieved to have picked up a 2-0 win over Burton Albion at home which put an end to a previously worrying three-match losing streak at the DW Stadium, suffering losses to Sheffield Wednesday, MK Dons and Lincoln City respectively.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Shrewsbury Town Preview – Can Shrews produce upset?

19th placed Shrewsbury Town continue to hover dangerously just above the relegation zone in League One as the visitors have produced mixed results in recent times which includes wins against MK Dons, Cambridge United and Charlton Athletic, but they’ve also fallen foul of Oxford United and Cheltenham Town as well.

Interestingly, Shrewsbury’s recent wins were all achieved on home turf at the Montgomery Waters Meadow while the losses were incurred away from home, and indeed, The Shrews have struggled on the road so far this season.

Shrewsbury have lost eight of their last 10 away games in League One and more misery could be just around the corner for the visitors tonight.
