Wigan vs Preston Match Preview

Wigan once more defied the odds and the statistics to pick up all three points scoring with one of their few shots on target to beat Leeds 1-0 at Elland Road.   The Lancashire outfit have won back-to-back games to boost their survival hopes and move into 22nd two points behind Stoke in 21st.

At the DW Stadium, the Latics registered a 2-1 victory over Sheffield Wednesday when last playing here on January 28th.   It means they put to an end a seven-match winless home run though three of the last five in front of their own fans have finished all-square.

Preston drew 1-1 with Swansea at the weekend with Scott Sinclair getting his first goal since his January move from Celtic.  North-End are four without defeat and sit in seventh spot one place and three points behind Bristol City in sixth.

Away from Deepdale, the Lilywhites last performance was an impressive 3-0 win at Oakwell as they saw off Barnsley.  It stretches their unbeaten run to four on the road though they have taken all three points in just one of their last seven.

Bookmakers are having trouble splitting the pair as these two sides are in opposite halves of the table but Wigan have home advantage and have won back-to-back games.  Preston have won just one of their last seven on the road, Athletic just one of their last eight at the DW Stadium.  The draw looks the obvious call which while doing neither side any favours has been the outcome in three of the last five Latics home matches and three of four on the road for North-End.

You can enhance the price on the result a little by taking both teams to score and the game to finish all-square as has happened in three of the last five at this ground and two of the last three on the road for the Lilywhites.
