Millwall vs Wigan Athletic Prediction

Millwall registered back to back victories for the first time this season in the second division after Jed Wallace scored the lone goal in their clash with Swansea last week. The home side have now admitted defeat just once in their past five games, garnering a decent ten points from a possible fifteen.

At the moment, the hosts are sitting tenth on the ladder with twenty-four points to their name.

Wigan, on the other hand, are edging closer and closer to the relegation zone. The away side failed to turn things around from their dismal two-match losing streak and suffered a third successive defeat in their most recent matchup with Stoke on the road. Despite taking an early lead in that latter matchup, the visitors crumbled under pressure in the second half, and subsequently lost by a 2-1 scorecard.

It is also worth mentioning that Wigan are presently the second-worst away team in the cluster, and are yet to have a taste of success on the road this season. To make matters worse, the guests have not secured the bragging rights in any of their last four trips here. (D-1, L-3).

Taking into account that Millwall are unbeaten at home in their past four games as well, count on the guests to be deprived of all three points in this one. Furthermore, along with Barnsley and Preston, Wigan have scored the least number of goals on the road as of now.

Moreover, four of their previous six head to head meetings at The Den have been low scoring affairs with fewer than 2.5 goals on the charts. As such, count on Millwall to wrap things up with no more than a goal or two at the most on the final scorecards.
