Wigan Athletic will continue searching for a win in the Championship this weekend, they will be hosting Fulham at the DW stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Wigan’s poor campaign continued on Tuesday, they lost 2-1 to Norwich City. Jacob Murphy’s first half brace in third and 11th minute put Norwich City in front, the game went on till 72nd minute when J. Gomez pulled one back for Wigan but it wasn’t enough to salvage a point for them. They are in the relegation zone with 4 points and are hoping for a win to pull out of the relegation zone.

Fulham snatched a point against Burton Albion on Tuesday as they played out a 1-1 draw in the midweek fixture. J. irvine’s goal in the 51st minute gave Burton the lead, they were ready to celebrate their win when R. Sessengnon’s goal in the last minute pulled the two teams level. Fulham are now in the playoffs spot with 12 points and are hoping for a win to remain in the spot.

Wigan Athletic vs Fulham: Prediction

Wigan have been in very bad state at the moment, they are win-less in their last 5 games. Also, Wigan are on a 4 game losing streak.
Fulham are in a better form, they have won 2 of their last 5 games, they have drawn 2 and lost 1 in all competitions.

Wigan has a chance of ending their bad form if they can manage a better performance in this game. I expect a draw in the game, precisely a 1-1 draw.
