Wigan vs Middlesbrough Match Preview
Wigan needed an injury-time goal from Joe Garner to rescue a point against bottom of the table Ipswich last time out. Town played 65 minutes with ten-men which shows how disappointed Athletic will be.
At the DW Stadium, the Latics are unbeaten in their last four winning two and drawing two of these. Joe Garner has netted twice in his last four league appearances in front of his own fans.
Middlesbrough made it back-to-back victories with a comfortable 2-0 success over QPR last time out. The form of the top three sides through means the Teesiders look destined to have to settle for the play-offs.
Away from the Riverside, they have won three of their last four and the only defeat in six came at high-flying Sheffield United. Britt Assombalonga has found the net four times in his last four on the road.
Boro look worth backing here as Wigan are struggling at the moment and have not been a top ten side at their own place since October 20th. The visitors meanwhile have lost only once at bottom-half side on the road this campaign.
Britt Assombalonga is an obvious call given his goalscoring form on the road but at slightly bigger prices I will take a play on Mo Besic who has licence to get forward more since the arrival of Jon Obi Mikel.
