Ipswich Town vs Wigan Athletic Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture features two sides in the bottom-half of the Championship table. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Ipswich suffered a fourth consecutive defeat as they went down 2-0 to Stoke last weekend to blank for the second consecutive game. The result was harsh on Town who if anything were the better team.

Wigan saw their three-game unbeaten run come to an end as they suffered a 1-0 home loss to Derby last time out in a match that saw Kai Naismith dismissed. The Latics can have few complaints as the Rams were the better team according to the expected goals data.

The Suffolk outfit are unbeaten in the last four meetings between the pair winning three of these. Freddie Sears grabbed a braced for the Tractor Boys in one of these meetings with the Latics.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

Wigan are the favourites here and I could not be backing a team at those odds who have yet to win a road game all season. Ipswich might not have a better chance of that elusive home win this season but I could not trust them to do so.

Both sides are struggling for goals and while under 2.5 goals is low under 1.5 might be worth a go as is taking NO in the both teams to score market.

Ipswich Town Preview

The appointment of Paul Lambert has not brought a change in fortune and it is hard to see Town turning their season round. They have just one win all season and two points from their last nine and sit seven points adrift at the bottom.

At Portman Road, they are winless this season and have lost four of their last five in front of their own fans. Just one of their next five is against a top eight teams and if they are to get out of trouble they need to make their own ground a fortress.

Three of the last five Ipswich have played have gone over 2.5 goals and the two that have not have produced exactly two goals. Four of the last six have seen both teams find the back of the net.

 

Ipswich Town Team News

Myles Kenlock (hamstring) is a doubt while Jon Walters, Tom Adeyami (both Achilles), Cole Skuse and Emyr Huws (both knee) are long-term absentees.

Wigan Athletic Preview

The Latics have now managed to win just one of their last eight and have slid into the bottom ten. They sit 16th though they are still six places and seven points above the relegation spots.

Away from the DW Stadium, they are without a victory in their last eight losing seven of these. Just one of the next four the Lancashire outfit play on the road is against a top eight team.

Just one of the last five Wigan has played in the Championship has gone over 2.5 goals with two of the last four going under 1.5 goals. In three of their last five Athletic have failed to find the back of the net.

 

Wigan Athletic Team News

Nick Powell, Gavin Massey, Michael Jacobs (all hamstring) are doubts while Cheyenne Dunkley (knee) and Antonee Robinson (ankle) are set to miss the next few months.  Kai Naismith will miss this game through suspension.
