Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Memorial Stadium (Bristol).

Wigan got back to winning ways at the expense of Rochdale on the weekend and they look to carry the momentum for another three points against Bristol Rovers to reclaim the top spot in League One from Blackburn Rovers.

The Latics lost two on the bounce prior to the 1-0 win against Rochdale on Saturday, which momentarily pushed them down to third in the league table. However they played 3 games fewer than both Blackburn and Shrewsbury on top, that means wise use of the extra games could see climb back to the pole position.

Meantime, Bristol Rovers are 12th in the standings and they are still in the race for promotion play-off, however they trail the top six teams by 7 points.

The weekend saw the Rovers holding the fifth placed Scunthorpe to a 1-1 draw at home. The result is no surprise as they are one of the best home sides in the league. Their overall record this season stand at 10 wins, 1 draw and 6 losses from 17 games, making them the 6th best home side in League One.

Bristol Rovers vs Wigan Athletic: Head-to-head

Wigan are unbeaten in the last six meetings with Bristol Rovers, 3 wins and 3 draws.

The reverse of the corresponding fixture was a comfortable 3-0 win for the Latics.

Bristol Rovers vs Wigan Athletic: Prediction

This is expected to be a cagey affair with Bristol Rovers being a more than capable team at their own backyard. Wigan on the other hand are the best away side in the league and won in 10 of their 14 outings so far. So, there is no doubt that both sides will back themselves for three-pointer, but I can see this easily going down as a scored draw.
