Wigan vs Barnsley Match Preview
Wigan lost 3-1 at QPR last time out which was their fourth successive league defeat and the fifth in all competitions. Only one side (Stoke with 13) have conceded more than the 11 Championship goals they have let in.
At the DW Stadium, the Latics have won one and lost one with a 3-2 victory over Cardiff and the defeat coming at home to Leeds. The Lancashire outfit have only lost on two occasions at this ground during 2019.
Barnsley lost 3-1 at home to Luton last time out which made it back-to-back defeats and stretched their winless league run to four. They have just four goals for this season which (along with Wigan) is the joint-third lowest in the division.
Away from Oakwell, the Tykes have lost both games this season 2-0 going down at Sheffield Wednesday and Birmingham. If you add in their last spell in this division they are now without a road success losing eight of these.

Instead, look at the player markets where a little bit of value can be had backing anytime scorers. Neither side have a prolific scorer which means that the first goalscorer market opens up possibilities. Lee Evans is a player not afraid to try his luck and while he doesn’t always hit the target he looks the value call here to net,
