Venue: The DW Stadium (Wigan).
There was a whole division separating these two teams last season, but here they are lock on points in the top half of the standings ahead of the 11th round head to head tie at The DW Stadium.
Wigan Athletic made their home patch a true fortress this term. Opposite to expectations, the recently-promoted side bagged four wins and a draw in five matches in front of the home crowd so far in the season. Such fine home form brought them up to sky-high 8th place in the Championship ladder.
Can the Tics keep it going on Tuesday evening when they host fellow promotional hopefuls Swansea City?
Wigan Athletic vs Swansea City: Head-to-head
The two teams are about to cross each other’s paths for the first time in five years this Tuesday.
They last met back in the 2012/13 Premier League campaign when the Swans took the maximum six points from home and away ties against the Latics.
Swansea won each of last three meetings with Wigan bagging seven goals in the process.
Wigan Athletic vs Swansea City: Prediction
Paul Cook’s men were unlucky to concede a goal just four minutes from time and lose the clash to Norwich City at Carrow Road at the weekend. Nevertheless, they once again showed a fine defensive display and the Welsh outfit will no doubts struggle in the build-up play here.
Wigan conceded just one goal in last three home games, each of which saw them snatch three-pointers. Swansea also play very tight at the back. They shipped just one goal in last four matches in the Championship. They will come into this high on confidence after a demolishing 3-0 victory over Queens Park Rangers on Saturday.
The Under 2.5 goals FT thus looks to be a banker bet at the 1.85 odds here. You can also back Under 0.5 goals in the first half at the 2.75 odds.
