Fulham vs Wigan Athletic Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

Fulham v Wigan Athletic, Match Prediction

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) game will have implications at both ends of the table. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

It has finished all square the last four times these sides have met including in the reverse fixture at the DW Stadium on September 17th.  That game ended 0-0 in a match that was low on chances with just three shots on target.

It was disappointment last time out for Fulham as they went down 1-0 to Birmingham. The game seemed to turn on a Ryan Fredricks red card as seven minutes after it the Blues found the back of the net.

Wigan were playing in midweek where they battled out a 2-2 draw with promotion-chasing Norwich at the DW Stadium.  The Latics went 1-0 behind before two Omar Bogle goals put them ahead but they were pegged back by the Canaries and had to settle for a point.

Fulham Preview

Fulham have taken just seven points from the last 18 available in the league and this has seen them lose ground on the top six. The Cottagers are now tenth in the Championship table and going into the weekend games sat six behind the sixth spot.

A return to Craven Cottage will please manager Slavisa Jokanovic as they have lost just one of their last eight league games at their own ground which was against high-flying Brighton. They have won four and drawn three of the other seven matches.

Eight of the last ten Fulham home league fixtures have gone over 2.5 goals with the two that did not still featuring two goals each. Both teams to score has happened in six of their last nine in front of their own fans.

Wigan Preview

A draw last time out means it is just one defeat from their last four league games for Wigan.  The results of teams around them though this means they still sit in 23rd and the gap to Burton in 21st is five points though they do have a game in hand of the Brewers.

Four points from their last two on the road means the Latics should have hopes of getting something out of this game especially as they took a point at Derby in their penultimate away match. They also won at Huddersfield and have drawn at Leeds and Barnsley recently.

Before meeting Norwich the previous six Wigan fixtures against teams in the top ten had gone under 2.5 goals. On the road ties tend to see the Lancashire side involved in low scoring games with nine of the last ten going under.

Fulham Team News

Ryan Fredericks will miss the game through suspension after his red card last time out.

Wigan Team News

Alex Bruce (achilles) and Luke Garbutt (back) are listed as day-to-day while Dan Lavercombe (finger), Donervon Daniels (knee), Kyle Knoyle (elbow) and Reece Burke (hip) are all rated doubtful.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Omar Bogle made his first start for the Latics in midweek and he grabbed a brace to show that he is capable of making the adjustment to the Championship from League Two where he already had 19 goals for the season.  Wigan do not have another scorer on the team as those two Bogle goals made him the joint second highest team scorer this season, yes already. Take Bogle then in the first team scorer market and to score at anytime against a Fulham side who have kept just three clean sheets in their last 13 home at home.
