Wigan vs Leeds Match Preview
Leeds head to the DW Stadium on Saturday afternoon looking to preserve their unbeaten start to the campaign. They came close to promotion last season, and the same is expected again this time around, although obviously their fans will be hoping they can complete the final step that they couldn’t take back in May. Wigan are expected to be at the opposite end of the table, and early points on the board will be a big bonus for their survival chances.
Leeds began things this season with a great 3-1 away win at Bristol City, immediately showing signs they were in exactly the same mindset as they were at the beginning of last season. Last week’s draw at home was perhaps a little disappointing for them, they have to pick up wins when playing at home but it was a game they dominated in parts, just failing to make their possession and chances pay.
Wigan picked up three points on the opening day when they won a thrilling game against Cardiff 3-2. Beating an ex-Premier League team was a good start, but they were unable to match that last weekend when they were beaten away at Preston 3-0. They have to bounce back from that, and going up against Leeds that won’t be easy, so there pressure is on Wigan a little here.
In both games so far, Leeds have scored and conceded and that could be a pattern we see emerge throughout the season. They have the quality to score plenty of goals, but they do take risks at the back. With Wigan being involved in a five goal thriller on the opening day, this looks to be a game where both teams will be confident they can find the back of the net. However, despite that, it is Leeds who we think will eventually come out on top as they try to lay down their promotion chances early.
