Preston vs Wigan Match Preview

Preston started their Championship campaign with a 1-0 loss at Millwall though the expected goals data suggests the score was a little harsh.  They need to replace the goals Callum Robinson provided after his summer move to Sheffield United.

At Deepdale, the Lilywhites lost only five times last season though they only won eight with ten finishing all-square.  Their home games were good entertainment for the neutral with a combined 71 goals from 23 fixtures an average of just over three per match.

Wigan opened their campaign with a 3-2 victory over Cardiff with Michael Jacobs, Josh Windass and Lee Evans grabbing a goal each.  It was a deserved victory over a side many are tipping to return to the Premier League next season.

Away from the DW Stadium, the Latics were poor last season losing 16 of their 23 played and winning on just two occasions.  The 44 goals that Athletic conceded on the road was the joint-fourth worst in the division last season.

Bookmakers make North-End the favourites to come out on top in this Lancashire derby and it is hard to argue with this assesment.  The home side look the call here given how poor the visitors were on the road last season losing 16 of 23.  Despite the five-goal thriller Wigan were involved on the opening day they are not blessed with goalscorers and nor are Preston so back a home win and under 3.5 goals in the match.
