Wigan to win the game

Wigan have been in sensational form throughout the campaign and the team is looking for a sixth consecutive victory in the league. The home games have been very tricky for the opposition to handle, as the DW Stadium has provided four wins in the five matches. Sheffield Wednesday come into this match with the just one away win so far. It will be difficult to expect Sheffield Wednesday to take anything out of the game especially with Wigan on excellent form.

Total goals under 2.5

Wigan might be leading the table but they have done so by being prudent and efficient. The team has not scored over 2.5 goals in any of the home games so far this season. Sheffield Wednesday are also not being rich in terms of goals away from home.

Goals from both teams – no

Sheffield Wednesday have failed to score in three out of the last five away games. They are up against a Wigan outfit who have kept clean sheets at home in a similar time frame. As the basis of Wigan has been a strong defence, it will be difficult to witness both teams scoring in this game.

Wigan vs Sheffield Wednesday: Match Preview and Team News

Wigan

Wigan will be keen to hold on to the top spot and the team are doing so only on the basis of goal difference. For a team that has the best defensive record in the league so far, it is difficult to expect anything other than a top performance at home. Gwion Edwards is the only injury worry for Wigan due to a thigh problem.

Sheffield Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday come into this match without a victory in the last four matches. The confidence is low among the visitors, who are just about holding onto the top half of the table position. There are no injury issues for Wednesday, who can field a full-strength team for the game.
