Wigan vs Cardiff Match Preview
Wigan are looking to improve on last season where they finished 18th having started so well but struggled badly in the second half. Paul Cook remains the man in charge and he faces a tough battle having lost key player Nick Powell. Bookmakers think they will struggle and many have them as third favourites for the drop.
At the DW Stadium, the Latics did most of their work with 41 of their 52 points gained coming in front of their own fans. 57% of the goals that they scored came here while only 31% of goals conceded came in home fixtures.
Cardiff are back in the Championship following a season in the Premier League that saw them battle gamely but were ultimately relegated. Neil Warnock remains the man in charge though he has suggested that this will be his last season. The Welsh outfit are third favourites for the title and have made some good signings in the summer though have also lost a few key players.
Away from the Cardiff City Stadium, the Bluebirds lost 13 times last season which was the joint-third worst in the top-flight. Their biggest issue was a lack of road goals having netted just 13 on their travels last season.
The Welsh outfit are favourites to take all three points but Wigan were strong at the DW last season and we would not be rushing to take them on here. Instead, it might pay to have a look at the goalscorer market. Bobby Reid struggled in the Premier League but he grabbed 19 for Bristol City two seasons ago and looks anytime value here. It might also be worth a smaller stakes interest on him to net two or more goals.
