Wigan vs Reading Prediction

Wigan is a strong contender for getting relegated in this season after 18 games in the league. They have 4 wins and draws each in the campaign so far. Also, the host has conceded 28 goals in the contest while slotting in 16 goals in the process.

Besides that, the Latics showed improvement after drawing their previous encounter with Millwall on the road with a 2-2 scoreline. Even though they have less hope in the league, their recent result shows a fair hope for the home team against Reading.

Reading, on the other hand, has lost the last two matches against Brentford and Leeds. Besides that, the Royals have 5 wins and 3 draws along with 9 losses in their 17 league appearances. In the event, the guest has slotted in 19 goals while taking in 22 goals in the process.

Also, Reading will be coming off of a 0-1 defeat against Leeds at home in their previous match in the campaign. Apart from that, their last away fixture also turned them down when they faced Brentford with a 1-0 scoreline.

At home, Wigan has registered 4 wins and 3 losses in their 8 home matches in this league season. Even though their last two home matches against Swansea and Brentford finished in a loss, the Latics will not be affected as both teams are from the top part of the table.

Meanwhile, Reading has been winless in their last five away fixtures in the contest. Also, the guest has recorded only one win in their 8 away fixtures until now.

As such, based on their home ground advantage and comparatively better form at home, Wigan has more chance of registering a win. So, it is safer to go with a double chance in the game.
