Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Wigan Athletic play host to Accrington Town at their DW Stadium in what is expected to be a close encounter. The Latics did well to shock Sunderland at the Stadium of Light at the weekend, with the team reviving their survival hopes. The rock-bottom side are eager to give fans yet another reason for celebration, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Accrington on Matchday 17.
The visiting team, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-1 win over MK Dons, but seeing that the hosts want this win more than the visitors, we predict that John Coleman’s troops are going to return home empty-handed. When the two teams met in the EFL Trophy three years ago Accrington rolled over Wigan 4-0, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge. Kyle Joseph, who scored the winner against the Black Cats, will lead the line for the hosts.
