Wigan Athletic News and Form – Will the Latics’ winless run go on?

Paul Cook’s Wigan Athletic survived comfortably in the end last season. However, the Latics look certain to be involved in another relegation scrap this time around. Athletic have slipped into the bottom three having taken just 16 points from 20 games.

Since beating Nottingham Forest 1-0 at the DW back in October, which remains their only win in ten, Wigan have taken a mere two points from a possible 24, drawing two and losing six of eight. The Latics have won only three times since beating Cardiff City at home on the opening weekend of the season.

With Cook’s troops in such woeful form, a game against the league leaders would have been right at the bottom of their wish list. Still, can Wigan cause a huge upset on their own patch this Wednesday?

West Bromwich Albion News and Form – Baggies to keep on winning?

Last Sunday’s outstanding 5-1 win over Swansea City at The Hawthorns was West Bromwich Albion’s sixth Championship victory in a row. Slaven Bilic’s boys were superb against Steve Cooper’s Swans, with Semi Ajayi, Matheus Pereira, Hal Robson-Kanu, Matt Phillips and Kyle Edwards scoring in the rout.

West Brom are starting to win at home, while they have the joint best away record in England’s second tier. Albion have won seven, drawn two and lost one of their ten away league matches to take 23 points from a possible 30.

Bilic’s Baggies are the strong favourites to see off lowly Wigan at the DW Stadium in midweek, with bet365 pricing them at 4/6. Will the table-toppers make it seven victories on the bounce?

Wigan Athletic vs West Bromwich Albion Predictions

West Bromwich Albion win: With the pair in such contrasting form, it’s difficult to see past a comfortable win for the Baggies on Wednesday. Wigan will be desperate for the points after slipping into the relegation zone, but West Brom have been the most consistent team in the Championship this season.

Albion have yet to keep a clean sheet at home, but the Baggies have stopped the opposition from scoring in five of their last six away matches, winning five of those. Put some money on West Brom to win to nil (7/4) in midweek.

Hal Robson-Kanu is in the form of his life at the moment, scoring six times in his last nine Championship appearances. The Welshman is available at 11/2 to open the scoring on Wednesday.
