Wigan Athletic Form


Last Time Out In The Championship

Wigan fell to a late Norwich City penalty at Carrow Road on Saturday. Both sides had been in good form coming into the game, but home advantage swayed the tie in Norwich’s favour. The Canaries were the best team from the offset, immediately attacking Wigan. Wigan defended well during the game, but still failed to stop Norwich creating good chances. The late penalty might have been a harsh award, but Wigan can have no complaints. The Latics failed to have a shot on target during the whole match. Against Swansea, expect Wigan to come out all guns blazing to grab a goal and try and put this defeat behind them.

[Wigan to score the first goal - 5/7*]

Last Time Out In The Championship

Swansea City got back to winning ways with a 3-0 win against Steve McClaren’s QPR. Courtney Baker-Richardson grabbed his first goal for Swansea early on, before Connor Roberts and Jay Fulton added late goals. Swansea’s tight defence managed to keep QPR at bay throughout the match, giving Erwin Mulder little to do. Oli McBurnie was Bet UK’s man of the match, providing 2 assists and running the game from a new deeper role. The Scotsman thrived whilst playing with a partner up front, so we expect him to impress again at the DW Stadium.

Wigan Athletic v Swansea City Head to Head

Swansea are unbeaten in the last 4 meetings between the two sides. Swansea and Wigan haven’t faced each other very often due to the differences in leagues between the two sides, only playing each other 7 times since 2000. Last time the 2 sides played, Swansea ran out 3-2 winners towards the end of the 2012/13 season. Angel Rangel, Itay Shechter and Dwight Tiendalli scored the goals that day to all but send Wigan down to the Championship. Swansea were also the victors the last time that the two played at the Liberty Stadium. Pablo Hernandez and Michu scored in the second half to give the Swans a 2-1 win, a result that fans would definitely take this time out.
