Wigan vs Huddersfield
Date: 2nd January 2017, Monday.
Kick-off: 15:00 UK
Venue: DW Stadium, Wigan.
Wigan Athletic held firm to deny Derby County a win, when they two teams met at the iPro stadium on the new year’s day. The match ended 0-0 and this put an end to Wigan’s 5 match losing streak. However, they are still rooted in the relegation zone and even their home record is not encouraging. Wigan managed just a draw from their last 6 home matches and failed to score in 5.
An injury time goal from Nahki Wells rescued a point for Huddersfield Town in their matchday 24 clash with Blackburn. The Terriers were by far the better team, but Blackburn took a shock lead in the 81st minute. This could be rather considered as 2 points lost than a point earned and could affect them in the long run to earn a play-off spot. Huddersfield are currently 4th in the league with 43 points, same as Reading on 3rd place.

Therefore, this match could result in another away win. If you look at the stats, the home team have won twice in the last 7 meetings between the two sides. So this could be rather confirmed.
