Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
Wigan Athletic play host to Chorley in the opening match of their FA Cup campaign. The Latics have been struggling in the League One this season, and it has to be noted that they are on a three-game losing run ahead of the FA Cup clash. Wigan failed to win the last four league fixtures, meaning that they will surely give 100% to put an end to the negative trend.
Chorley set up a meeting with the Latics by beating the likes of Gateshead and York in the preliminary rounds, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against the League One side. Considering that the visitors failed to find the net in the previous three games in the National League North, we predict that the Latics are going to pick up all three points from Saturday’s FA Cup clash.
