Middlesbrough News and Form
Boro have just one point on the board so far this season. That point came in their opening game when they played out a 3-3 draw at the newly promoted Luton. They have followed that up with back to back 1-0 losses against Brentford and Blackburn. So the lack of output and no clean sheet thus far has heaped some early pressure on new boss Jonathan Woodgate. For a team who only just missed the playoffs last season, this isn’t the start that was expected for them. Boro produced a W01 D6 L7 record on home soil last season, can they get some cheer there on Tuesday?

Wigan News and Form
The Latics opened the season in some style as they banked a 3-2 win over Cardiff. Last season’s Championship campaign was their first back up in the second tier after promotion and their survival came about because of some great home form. After that opening success over Cardiff, they have taken two big defeats, a 3-0 reverse out at Preston and then a 2-0 defeat at home on the weekend against Leeds. So defensively there are some clear early problems for Wigan, having shipped seven in three. That’s the joint worst in the division after three rounds of action. The Latics only won twice on their league travels last season (D5 L16). They conceded at almost an average of two goals per away game during the last campaign.
Middlesbrough v Wigan Tips & Odds
Who will win – Middlesbrough v Wigan Predictions
There is not much confidence flying around from either of these this season. Boro looks the more likely of the two to come up with a victory in this one though because of Wigan’s horrible away record since getting back into the second tier. Home win to nil.
