Wigan are still stuck in the bottom three in the Championship table and not even a win on Tuesday night in this home fixture will pull them out. Success though would give them a bit of hope and it would leave them only four points behind Boro. The visitors have lost their winning touch, not having taken a success in five.

Wigan can make the most of home advantage

If Wigan are going to get themselves safe from the drop in the second tier this season, it will be courtesy of their home form. They are W5 D4 L6 at the DW Stadium this season. They need to scrap everything that they can from home games as they start midweek action four points from safety. Their record from seven home games played this season against teams currently outside of the top ten is good.

Wigan are W3 D3 L1 in such games. They did have a slip up in their last home game, a 2-1 reverse against top-six side Preston. Wigan have averaged exactly a goal per home game in this campaign, with 40% of league fixtures only at the DW Stadium going over 2.5 goals. Four of Wigan’s home wins this season have been by just a one-goal margin.

(odds taken 16:44 GMT, Monday 10th February)

Wigan have drawn their last three home games against Boro and each of their last six against them have gone under 2.5 goals. There has been no home clean sheet by Wigan now in nine and the second half of Latics’ home games have where the goals have been.

Wigan have scored 67% of their home goals after half time, and have conceded 70% of home goals in the second period of matches too. They couldn’t get anything out of play-off hopefuls Preston in their last home fixture, but will Wigan find the going a little easier here?

 

The winds have dried up for Boro

Boro had a great streak of form going from just before Christmas through to the early January. It was a four-match winning streak that they strung together, beating top-six sides in two of those games as well.

So things looked on the up. But they have just faltered since failing to win any of their last five played home and away combined (D3 L2).

They have lost their last two away games as well, both one-goal margin defeats at Fulham and Brentford. Granted those were both top-six opponents, but overall this season Middslrbough’s away record is poor.

They are just W2 D5 L8 on the road this season. Surprisingly those two road successes were at current top-six teams. Boro have drawn their three away games played against teams currently 17th or lower.
