Wigan Athletic vs Charlton Athletic Prediction
Even though Wigan have more wins from the home matches, they did have difficulty in the last two meetings with Charlton. Moreover, they couldn’t even score a goal against the visitors in those two games. As mentioned earlier, there have been celebrations in the first half itself whenever the teams meet here. As such, we can expect that to happen, especially with the visitors in such good from.
Charlton may be in a good form and also unbeaten at the Wigan ground in the recent two matches, but they still lack the home advantage. Moreover, they have been defeated only once when it comes to top championship games. Besides that, the Addicks have displayed unbeaten streak in their away games in the league.
As such, we can see that the match will be partly in the grasp of the guest depending on their proficiency in the ninety minutes.
