Stoke are not playing well so far and the team is far from their desired position. The Potters are looking to fight for promotion following their Premier League relegation but instead they find themselves on 18th place.

Heavy defeat against Leeds followed by 2 draws against strong sides from last year like Preston and Brentford gave their 2 points from the opening rounds. Stoke is in desperate need of victories to climb the table and lift their spirits.

The main problem upon the team looks like their defensive line. The Potters conceded 6 goals in 3 games which can hardly be compensated. Last round they drew against Preston North End in an entertaining 2-2 game. Stoke went behind twice but eventually managed to level the score.

Wigan started the season well following their promotion last year. Latics have won 4 points so far getting one of each – victory, draw and defeat. The main problem upon the team is their defense as they have conceded 10 goals in their last 4 games in all competitions. Last round they managed an entertaining draw 2-2 with Nottingham which clearly showed a lot of their defensive issues.

Stoke City vs Wigan Athletic: Head-to-head

  • Stoke is winless in 8 games in all competitions
  • Stoke are winless in 9 home games in al competitions
  • Wigan lost their last 3 visits in all competitions conceding 3 goals each
  • Wigan have scored 2 goals in each of their last 4 games against Stoke

Stoke City vs Wigan Athletic: Predictions

This game should have goals. All games of both teams this year finished with both teams finding the net and neither side looks defensively capable. Stoke will be looking for the victory and will be as determined as ever. They have the needed class but they are not yet producing the needed results.

  • Stoke to win at 11/10 (2.10)
