Swansea City 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.

Swansea suffered a second successive loss at they went down at home to Aston Villa 1-0 on Boxing Day. They can consider themselves unlucky as the expected goals data had them as the stronger team but they could find no breakthrough.

Wigan have lost four straight and are five without a win after going down 2-0 at West Brom last time out. The game was closer than the scoreline suggested but an eighth minute Baggies goal did change the nature of things.

The reverse fixture came on October 2nd at the DW Stadium and that fixture ended without a goal. The expected goals data had little to choose between the pair suggesting both should have registered a goal each.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Swansea will not have many better chances to pick a home victory against a side who have lost nine of their last ten on the road. While they will probably do it you would not want to be backing them at those odds.

Neither side are blessed with goals, Wigan having failed to net in any of their last four so backing under 2.5 goals looks the sensible play while also having a small interest on under 1.5.

Swansea City Preview

The Swans have lost their last two and five of their last seven which has halted their hopes of promotion. They still have time to go on a run and although they sit in 13th are just seven points from the top six.

At the Liberty Stadium, they have lost three of their last four those defeats came against Villa, Norwich and West Brom. Ollie McBurnie has bagged three times in his last four appearances in front of his own fans.

Swansea have scored their last three league goals in the final 20 minutes through at home they have scored in three of their last five first-halves. Six of the last seven that they have conceded have come in the second-half.

 

Swansea City Team News

Luciano Narsingh (hamstring), Courtney Baker-Richardson (ankle), Tom Carroll (hip) and Jordi Govea (unknown) are doubts. Martin Olsson (Achilles) has been ruled out for the season.

Wigan Athletic Preview

The Latics woes continue as they have lost four straight and taken just five points from their previous nine. They are down to 19th and with just four points between them and the bottom three are in a relegation battle.

Away from the DW Stadium, they have been poor with no victory in their last ten and nine of these ending in defeat. The Lancashire outfit have blanked in three of their last four on the road and scored just once.

A lack of goals is killing Wigan who have gone four without scoring and have netted a combined four from their last eight. Five of the last eight they have shipped have come in the first-half.

 

Wigan Athletic Team News

Nick Powell, Michael Jacobs (both hamstring) are doubts while Antonee Robinson (ankle) is set to miss the next few months.
