18th August 2018 – 15:00, The DW Stadium, Wigan.
Match Preview & Team News
Wigan host Nottingham in one of the most interesting ties of the Matchday on Saturday afternoon at The DW Stadium. The visitors finally managed to clinch their first win of the campaign seven days ago when they broke Reading’s resistance harder than expected to confirm the favourite stag at The City Ground. Aitor Karanka made the right move by bringing the Algerian forward El Arbi Soudani into the game as he was the one who eventually broke the deadlock 20 minutes from time to secure his team’s inaugural three-pointer of the campaign.
The Reds, who are among the main contenders for the promotion at the end of the season, started off with back-to-back draws to Bristol City and West Bromwich Albion. They obviously find it tough to produce in the final third at the moment, but Karanka can at least be satisfied with the defensive line which allowed only two goals in three games so far.
Nottingham’s defense will be on a serious test at The DW Stadium given that Wigan bagged five goals in two games so far. Nevertheless, the Latics shipped the same amount of goals in these games and they added three more to that in mid-week loss to Rotherham United in the League up.
It will be the music to the ears of Adlene Guedioura, Daryl Murphy, El Arbi Soudani, Joao Carvalho & company who have a nice chance to make it back-to-back league wins here. It is, however, interesting to note that the Reds have never managed to beat Wigan at The DW Stadium (two wins for the Latics and four draws in six games).
Full Time Winner Odds & Prediction
The quality is on Nottingham’s side and we have to try with the visitors not to lose at the odds of 3/5.
Goals Market Prediction
The Latics have been very easy to break down so far in the campaign and we have to go with Nottingham to score two or more goals on the day at 13/8.
