Wigan Athletic to win the game

Bolton and Wigan are very closely matched in this early part of the campaign, but home advantage gives the Latics a huge reason to expect a victory from this match. Bolton did not fare well in away matches during the latest stint in League One and there may not be a huge change on this front ahead of this match. Wigan are quite a strong team at home with only two defeats since the middle of March.

Total goals more than 2.5

The match witnesses two teams who have been in good form over the last few weeks. Even if they do not trade goal for goal, this is likely to be a close contest with more than 2.5 goals in the match. This has been the norm among many of the recent meetings between these two clubs.

Both teams to get at least a goal

Wigan have been able to score at least once in the last five matches while Bolton have only been unable to get a goal in the last League Cup action against Barnsley from the Championship. The two teams have enough offensive strength to expect goals in this match.

Wigan vs Bolton: Match Preview and Team News

Wigan

Wigan have been having many crucial wins of late. Even though the team did not start with hopes of winning the title, the last few results have provided a lot of hope. If Wigan are able to sustain this form over the next month or so, it would put them in a fantastic position to getting back into the Championship. Wigan only have Gwion Edwards unavailable due to injury.

Bolton

Bolton are certainly one of the top promoted teams and few would have expected the consistent start that they have made over the last few weeks. However, Bolton have now given themselves a great opportunity to have a strong 2021-22 campaign. There are no injury problems for coach Ian Evatt coming into the game.
