Our prediction for this Championship match:
Brentford and Wigan face each other at Griffin Park in what is expected to be a very exciting game. The Bees are eyeing automatic promotion, and their recent form is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of Matchday 41. Brentford are on a four-game winning run in the Championship, and it is no wonder they are seen as favourites to win Saturday’s showdown.
Despite failing to find the net in the 3-0 win over Reading, Olie Watkins will be the man to watch in the home team. The Latics, on the other hand, extended their winning run to three games in midweek, with the team rolling over Stoke City 3-0. Wigan Athletic are likely to rely on their rock-solid defence against Brentford, but preventing the Bees from scoring at Griffin Park is easier said than done. Wigan midfielder Michael Jacobs is likely to miss the game with injury.
