Stoke vs Wigan Match Preview

Stoke manager Michael O’Neill will take charge of his side for a first home game this weekend after marking his debut in the dugout with a 4-2 victory at Barnsley.  The Staffordshire outfit sit second bottom of the table with just three victories all season.

At the Bet365 Stadium, the Potters have struggled this season losing six of eight played in front of their own fans.  None of their last three in the Championship here and two of their last six have seen both teams find the back of the net.

Wigan lost 3-0 at home to Brentford just before the international break to continue their poor recent form that has seen them lose three of their last four and take just one point from this run.  They sit 20th in the table just two places and two points above the drop zone.

Away from the DW Stadium, the Latics have been poor picking up just two points from the eight they have played.  A lack of road goals has been an issue for the Lancashire side who have netted just five on their travels.

Bookmakers make the hosts strong favourites for the victory though it is hard to side with a team who have lost six of eight at their own ground.  Wigan though are just as poor on the road losing six of eight so it makes no sense to back them.

Six goals last game involving Stoke was likely a blip but no reason exists why this game can not feature goals and as over 2.5 goals is the outsider of two it looks the value selection while a smaller interest on over 3.5 also makes sense.
