Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Wigan Athletic and Northampton Town, the two teams who are level on points in the League One table, face each other at DW Stadium in what is expected to be a close encounter. Wigan aim to make amends for a 2-0 loss to MK Dons, and they are desperate to put an end to their five-game winless run in the league. Keep in mind that the hosts will be without attacker Will Keane against Northampton as the 27-year-old suffered an injury in the midweek defeat.
The visitors, on the other hand, suffered a massive 4-0 loss at Portsmouth in their last league match, and given their three-game losing run on the road, Wigan Athletic will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways. In their last meeting in the League One Wigan defeated Northampton thanks to Nick Powell’s goal.
