Nottingham Forest vs Wigan Prediction

Nottingham Forest will be on the back of a win after four winless games in their schedule. They defeated Hull by a 0-2 scoreline on the road in their previous league clash.

Even so, they have been struggling at home lately with three losses in the last five matches at home. But they have been struggling against stronger teams.

So, when it comes to facing the bottom part team, Wigan, we can count on Forest to perform well.

Along with that, Wigan has not won any of their twelve away games so far in the campaign this season. They have been alternating their draws and losses in their form away from home.

Also, they have marked their fourth continuous draw in the league with the 1-1 draw at home against Derby.

As such, Nottingham Forest has shown a better composure in the league this season. They are 17 points ahead of Wigan in the league table. Apart from that, the host has a better form at home even though it is a mixed form.

In addition to that, Wigan has been on a downward slope in their away form lately. Currently, they are the worst team in away fixtures in the campaign. So, the chances of Forest to take all three points are still alive in the game.

Hence, based on their overall performance, Nottingham Forest has more chance of winning the game.
