Our prediction for this Championship match:
Buoyed by back-to-back wins over Sheffield Wednesday and Leeds United, Wigan Athletic will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Preston at their DW Stadium. The Latics have been showing signs of improvement of late, and, no doubt, the triumph over Marcelo Bielsa’s men gave them a confidence boost. Wigan aim to escape the relegation zone in the Championship table, and, one thing is for sure, the hosts are likely to leave their hearts on the field.
The Lilywhites have been in a fine form of late as well. Preston are undefeated in the previous four league fixtures, and given the importance of the match for the away team, we predict that they are going to grab something from the DW Stadium showdown. You should know that under 2.5 goals have been netted in four of Wigan Athletic’s last five home games in the Championship.
