Wigan vs Barnsley Prediction

The teams have a poor reputation and form in the new season of the Championship. Despite the fact that they have not won in recent games, their h2h gives an idea about the result. The teams have scored in three out of the last five games in overall counts and also at this home ground.

Barnsley had outrun the host only once in the last seventeen years at the 2016 League One games. Wigan has won three games against Barnsley until now. Their prior meeting in Championship ended in Wigan taking the lead after the final whistle.

So, there is more chance for both the teams to find the back of the net in the match. The host is more likely to take the three points from the clash. As the teams are on poor form almost identically, it is safe to draw no bet on Wigan.
