Wigan vs Birmingham Match Preview
Wigan saw their three-game unbeaten run come to an end at the weekend as they went down 2-0 to Fulham. They can have few complants about the result as the London side were dominant and stretched Wigan to just one victory in eight.
At the DW Stadium, the Latics have been strong this season with two victories (over Charlton and Cardiff), a draw (with Barnsley) and just one defeat (against Leeds). After a 3-2 in the opener here the next three have seen just four combined.
Birmingham lost 3-2 at Derby at the weeekend to make it back-to-back defeats and three from their last five games. The result was incredibly harsh on the second city outfit who should have won easily according to the expected goals data.
Away from St Andrew’s, the Blues have lost three of their last four in the league and four of five in all competitions. In the league, they have kept two road clean sheets but on the three other occasions have shipped three goals.
Bookmakers make the Latics home favourites and it is hard to argue with this as they tough to beat at the DW while Birmingham have struggled on the road at times. The best way into this fixture is to look at the player markets and a few anytime scorer bets. We tipped Lukas Jutkiewicz at the weekend and despite posting incredible expected goals data he did not score but we are keeping the faith and backing him to net here. Cheyenne Dunkley has three goals for the season and is targeted at set-pieces and also is worth an anytime interest.
