Wigan vs Bristol City Prediction
Wigan picked up what was only their fifth win of the season, in the Championship, last week by taking down Birmingham on the road with a 3-2 scorecard. The victory was also their first in fourteen games, subsequently bringing their three-month long wait to a close.
However, the hosts were at the losing end yet again in their most recent FA Cup clash with Leicester City who breezed past them with a comfortable 2-0 scoreline.
With just twenty-three points to their name, the home side are currently sitting in the relegation zone, one point adrift of safety, and just two of hitting rock bottom on the ladder.
On the other hand, Bristol City are sporting a healthy fifteen-point cushion over Wigan at the moment. The guests, however, have been hit by a sharp decline in form. Miserably they have tasted success just once in their past seven games in all competitions.
It is also worth mentioning that the visitors have been recording back to back defeats in their past two outings. In sharp contrast, Wigan are unbeaten in their previous three games here and have stumbled just thrice in their last ten.
Taking into account that their last meeting at this venue also saw Wigan secure the bragging rights, Bristol City’s chances of picking up all three points are certainly looking bleak.
Be that as it may, the hosts have been sharing the spoils in each of their past three clashes at home. Considering that the reverse fixture of this matchup also ended in a tie, the safest choice would be opting for a double chance.
Furthermore, Wigan have been far to easy to breach as of late, and have conceded a goal or more in each of their previous six clashes here.
Meanwhile, their counterparts for the weekend, have had their scoring boots on in their outings this term. They have racked up twenty goals to their tally from their trips on the road alone.
As such, count on neither side to make it out on the ninety minutes with a clean sheet intact in this one.
