Wigan vs Brentford
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 30th March 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: DW Stadium (Wigan).
Wigan is fighting the relegation demons that are slowly closing in on them from below. The team has a safety cushion of just three points, and the likes of Reading, Rotherham etc, who are trying to avoid the boot as well, have upped their game. It would do them a world of good if Wigan takes advantage of their home games, which they have been doing for the last several match-days.
Brentford may be higher on the table, but they definitely are struggling on the road. All season, the team has managed just two wins away from home, and the bulk of their points have come from home ties. A place in the playoffs is just eight points above them and is certainly attainable. But not with lackluster away performances.
Wigan vs Brentford Head-to-head (h2h)
- Since 2002, no h2h game has seen an away win.
- Four of the last six wins and six of the last nine were registered by Wigan.

- The last time Brentford won at this venue was back in 2001.
- Only once has Wigan failed to score at home.
Wigan vs Brentford Prediction
Brentford is one of the worst teams on the road in the Championship. With just eight games remaining in the competition, the team has so far managed just two away wins. That is a run of 18 winless away matches, from 20 attempts. And on top of that, Wigan is unbeaten in their last six home ties. They also remained unvanquished in 16 of their last 20 home fixtures.
In addition, for the last 17 years, no single h2h game has returned an away win. With the backing of these overwhelming shreds of evidence, we would back the hosts to avoid a loss.
Going on, the struggling Brentford, with minimal chances to win, has no chance to find the back of the net in the first half. Also, the last six h2h encounters returned just a single away goal, and Brentford managed just one too, in their last three visits to this venue.
