Birmingham vs Wigan Match preview
Birmingham fought well but couldn’t find the equaliser in their previous 4-5 loss in the encounter at home against Leeds. It marked their fourth loss in the last five games.
Meanwhile, Wigan dropped all points at Nottingham Forest in their prior league clash with a 1-0 scoreline. It was their fifth winless game in a row with four draws in it.
Besides that, Birmingham has been winless in the last five home matches. In the meantime, Wigan is yet to mark a win in their 13 away fixtures so far.
Birmingham vs Wigan Prediction
From the current league standings, Birmingham does have a slight upper hand over Wigan in the match. Even so, we have to look upon the possibilities of their recent form in the campaign.
Moreover, the Blues are struggling for three points even at home. Even though the host has home ground advantage, the Blues doesn’t seem to utilise it much at home.
On the other side, the host will be glad to face Wigan caught in the relegation zone in the league table. They are at the ultimate bottom of the table this season. All their wins have been recorded at home. So, their away streak is poor but still they have four draws in it.
As such, we cannot lay aside the possibility of a draw since Birmingham has taken a dip in form at home. Hence, it is safer to go with a double chance in the clash.
Also, we can expect the total score to be over 1.5 goals at the least in the encounter. The Blues have scored 29 goals in 25 league appearances while the Latics slotted in 21 goals in the same period. Hence, we can expect a couple of goals in ninety minutes.
