England – Championship
Date: Wednesday, 13th February 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK / 20.45 CET
Venue: DW Stadium (Wigan).

The Potters have never found the stride in this competition, as they sit in the bottom half of the table. Nathan Jones and his troops have disappointed everybody, as they don’t show any character in their fight for survival. The second oldest club in the world is out of fuel, as their quality players are not performing up to the mark.

The SCFC is one of the weakest defensive units in this year’s EFL Championship, as they conceded 1.3 goals per match. Their midfield has shown vulnerability against fast moving players in the midfield, as the opposition takes full advantage of this to provide quality through balls to the box.

The Tics have been continuing their uncanny run like the past couple of years. There is nothing new in their style of play. The absence of quality players and young talents dented their chances for finishing in the top half of the table. The Latics are one of the weakest defensive units in the league, as they conceded 1.54 goals per match.

The goals will be approaching after 70 minutes of play, as both teams try to press high to get something out of the match. It will open up gaps in defense and goals will be produced through counter-attacking play through the wings.
