Our prediction for this Championship match:
Sheffield Wednesday will be aiming to bounce back from a massive 5-0 defeat to Blackburn Rovers when they take on Wigan Athletic at the DW Stadium on Tuesday evening. The Owls are four points behind the play-offs berth ahead of the trip to Greater Manchester, meaning that the midweek fixture is of big importance for them. However, away win should not be considered as the visitors will be without suspended midfielder Massimo Luongo against Wigan Athletic.
The Latics, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form, with the team losing to Bristol City and Swansea City in the previous two league matches. Wigan Athletic, though, aim to escape the relegation zone, and we predict that they will take advantage of the current situation in the Wednesday dressing room. You should bear in mind that under 2.5 goals have been netted in each of Wigan’s last four home games in the Championship.
