Hull City vs Wigan Athletic
Date: Wednesday, 10 April 2019
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: KCOM Stadium (Hull).
Hull City took advantage of the easier schedule to pick up back-to-back league wins over relegation strugglers Ipswich Town and Reading in last two rounds. They have a nice chance to keep such stellar form going on Wednesday evening when relegation-threatened Wigan Athletic come to visit KCOM Stadium in the 41st round of the competition.
A pair of comprehensive wins brought the Tigers just five points away from the promotional play-offs. They have right to dream of it, but it will be a mountain to climb for Nigel Adkins and his men with such deficit and a series of quite complicated fixtures upcoming in final five rounds of the campaign.

Each of last five head to head encounters produced three or more goals.
Hull City vs Wigan Athletic: Prediction
Wigan are just two points above the red zone line and this fixture has a massive importance for them, especially with clashes against Norwich City and Leeds United upcoming. They go into this high on confidence, unbeaten in last three league outings. The Latics showed a fantastic team spirit to bag a late stoppage-time equalizer and avoid a defeat against promotional hopefuls Bristol City away at Ashton Gate Stadium at the weekend.
What could be a problem for the visitors is their dreadful away record in this term of Championship. The Latics won 1, drew 4 and lost as many as 15 of 20 league games on the road this season. They are up against an in-form side which won 10 and lost only 5 of 20 home clashes this term.
The value is strong with Hull City to win at 2.15, while you can also back goals at both ends at 1.66 based on the form and head to head record.
