Wigan vs Bolton Match Preview
Wigan come into this game in trouble as a 3-0 loss in midweek makes it three straight defeats and no victories in seven. They need a win here to put a little distance between themselves and the bottom three.
At the DW Stadium, the Latics are unbeaten in the last five with each of the last three ending in a draw. The last three in front of their own fans have produced a total of just two goals and they came in the same fixture.
Bolton had won their penultimate game to give their thin survival hopes a boost but came crashing back to earth with a 2-0 home loss to Sheffield Wednesday. The gap between them and Wigan who sit in 21st is seven points.
Away from the Macron, the Trotters have managed just three wins all season and two of those came in August. They have conceded exactly two goals in four of their last five on their travels.
Wigan are the most likely winners of the match but I could not be backing them given how poor they have been of late. Bolton have shown little on the road and lost in midweek but at the prices I like them and the draw in the double chance market. They have beaten Millwall and Rotherham in recent times and raise their games against the teams around them.
Both teams to score is a little on the high side given that both sides need to win this fixture and that it is too teams of a similar ability meeting. I would recommend taking this to happen here.
