Wigan to win the match
Burton Albion do not have the greatest away record in the league after only eight points – a tally which looks decent thanks to the recent win over Fleetwood – from the seven matches. Wigan are on a three game losing streak at home, but a lot has to do with their struggles in midweek matches. During the weekend games, Wigan do play quite well. The Latics have also not suffered a defeat against Burton since 2015.
Total goals over 2.5
Wigan have not been prolific at home, but the last three matches at the DW Stadium have been with more than 2.5 goals. In a match involving Burton, there is likely to be higher possibility of over 2.5 goals, as has been the case in four out of the last five league matches.
Charlie Wyke to score anytime
Charlie Wyke has been a strong goalscoring asset for Wigan. The summer signing from Sunderland has been able to grab five goals in 13 matches. He has gone through a drought in recent weeks with just one goal in the last three matches. However, Wyke tends to score more at home with his last three goals coming at the DW Stadium.
Wigan vs Burton: League One Match Preview

Jimmy Hasselbaink has seen his Burton team knock on the doors of the top six places over the last few weeks. At this juncture, the loss against Oxford comes as a blow and Burton Albion have to recover from the setback through three consecutive away matches in three different competitions. There are no injury problems for Burton.
