Wigan News and Form
The survival hopes of Wigan took another hit in midweek as they lost 2-1 away at Hull. That means Wigan have won only one of their last 11 championship fixtures. Their away form has been pretty much dreadful all season long, but they are on a seven-match undefeated streak of form on home soil. They have drawn four of their last five at home and one of those was against playoff hopefuls Middlesbrough and recently they went to Bristol City and held out for a point. So they do have it in them but getting wins on the board is a massively tough ask for them.
The overall home form of Wigan this season reads W9 D7 L4 and they have scored an average of 1.25 goals per home fixture. Their defence has been good on home soil as they average under a goal per game there this season. In total Wigan have claimed a clean sheet in 45% of their home fixtures. Six of their nine home wins have been by just the one goal margin only and they have only been trailing at the halftime break in four home fixtures this season. There are only four teams currently in the Championship who have scored fewer goals than the Latics have done
