Wigan Athletic Preview – Can the Latics pick up a precious three points?

After dropping out of the EFL Championship after a points deduction last term, Wigan Athletic have been trying to pick up the pieces all season long. The Latics are in 21st place at present with 38 points to their name.

Things are incredibly tight around the bottom of League One. Only six points separate bottom Rochdale to 20th Wimbledon. Wigan occupy the final relegation spot at present, but a win on Tuesday will take them out of the bottom four.

Wigan have given themselves a survival lifeline with an incredible 4-1 win at Doncaster Rovers last weekend. They had gone into that one on a five-game winless streak (three defeats, two draws), but they stunned Donny thanks to goals from Joe Dodoo, Thelo Aasgaard, Viv Solomon-Otabor and Will Keane. Can they build on that this Tuesday?

Sunderland Preview – Black Cats to bounce back with a vital away victory?

Sunderland’s impressive unbeaten run came to an end on Saturday. In a huge promotion six-pointer, the Black Cats were beaten at home by Charlton Athletic. Despite a late rally, Josh Scowen’s 77th-minute effort was no more than a consolation.

Before the loss to the Addicks, Sunderland were unbeaten in 12 in the league since a 2-1 reverse at Shrewsbury Town back in early February. Lee Johnson’s boys had won nine and drawn three. Sunderland have slipped five points behind second place with a handful of games to go.

Johnson’s boys still have games in hand on the top two, but Tuesday’s fixture really is a must win after last weekend’s disappointment. The bookies have the away victory priced at 8/11.

 

Wigan Athletic vs Sunderland Betting Advice

Before the League One meeting back in December, which Wigan won 1-0 at the Stadium of Light, these two had not met since the 2012-13 Premier League season. Both clubs have fallen from grace in recent years. Sunderland are a club back on the up, while Wigan could drop into the fourth tier come the end of the campaign.

 

Key Facts – Wigan Athletic vs Sunderland Betting Tip

  • Sunderland had gone 12 games unbeaten before last weekend’s loss
  • Wigan’s win over Donny last time out was a first victory in six
  • The Black Cats have won four and drawn two of their previous six away matches

 

Wigan will be buoyed by last weekend’s stunning victory over Doncaster. However, they remain in the drop zone with just six fixtures left to play.

Sunderland will be desperate to bounce back with three points after their somewhat surprise home reverse to Charlton.

This could be close on the scoreline, but our money is going on the Sunderland win. Back the Black Cats to win by one at 5/2.

Veteran Aiden McGeady has scored two in his last three for Sunderland. McGeady is priced at 6/1 to open the scoring here.
