They picked up two wins and losses apiece and a single draw so far and they’ll be looking to rebound from a surprising 1-0 defeat to QPR tis Saturday when their former League One rivals Rotherham come to visit the DW Stadium.

The hosts offered their best performance of the season two weeks ago by putting three without reply past recently relegated Premier League side Stoke City away at Bet365 Stadium.

Nevertheless, such display was followed by a shocking defeat to Queens Park Rangers who had previously lost each of four opening fixtures by high margins.

Which Wigan face are we about to witness on Saturday against the Millers?

Wigan Athletic vs Rotherham: Head-to-head

The two teams have already played each other this season. The League Cup draw has put them together in the early stages of the competition and Rotherham United came on top winning 3-1 at AESSEAL New York City Stadium.

Wigan were previously on a streak of two wins and a draw in last three games against the Millers.

Three or more goals were seen in six of last seven head to head affairs between these two sides.

Wigan Athletic vs Rotherham: Prediction

Rotherham also played hot and cold at the start of the new season. They clearly lack the quality for big things at this level of the competition, but Paul Warne has reasons to be at least satisfied with team’s displays in front of the home crowd. They defeated Millwall 1-0 on the home patch last weekend which was their second win of the campaign.

Nevertheless, the Millers’ troubles appear on travels where they lost each of three official games of the season conceding as many as ten goals in the process. This will be the music to the ears of Will Grigg and Nick Powell who are looking to add to their fine three-goal tallies past the struggling defense of Rotherham’s here.

The home win looks to be a banker at 1.55, while you won’t make a mistake backing the hosts to net two or more goals at 1.61 either.
