West Brom vs Wigan Match Preview

West Brom recorded a 2-0 win at home over Preston the last match-day. The win to nil, that too over a playoff contender highlighted the phenomenal form the team has been in since the start of the season.

With just eleven match-days remaining till the end of the campaign, West Brom are the heavy favorites to deliver the title, and maybe more importantly, are on course to secure promotion to the top flight.

At present, they have a five-point cushion for the league crown, and a nine-point cushion for the direct-promotion spots.

Elsewhere, Wigan secured a 0-3 victory on the road against Reading. While it was their second win in a row, and the fourth unbeaten game on the trot, the fact that they are next taking on the toppers of the table will keep them grounded.

Wigan are placed in the relegation zone, and will have to secure as many points as they can to ensure their participation in the competition next time around.

West Brom vs Wigan Prediction

As mentioned earlier, West Brom have been the absolute best team in the league this season, and they are hell-bent on securing their shift to the PL. In this scenario, they will absolutely go berserk for the three points against any team, let alone a relegation-battler.

To pile on, West Brom are at home, and they have so far scored the most number of goals in the contest. On the other hand, Wigan are placed third to last in the table, and have secured a total of three wins away from home, in eighteen attempts.

Moreover, West Brom have a 100% winning record at this venue in h2h clashes at home in the past seven years, and in that period, have not conceded a single goal from Wigan. 

Taking all these findings into consideration, it’s deduced that West Brom are on course to deliver a massive win this weekend.
