Wigan News and Form
The Latics are keeping themselves afloat with their home form. They are W3 D1 L1 on home turf so far in this campaign and have produced some nice form there recently. The Latics have taken back to back home wins, both with clean sheets as well, against Charlton and Birmingham. Wigan are undefeated in their last three home fixtures, again, all with a clean sheet as well. Two of the three home wins that they have taken have been by a 1 goal margin.
They have had a bit of trouble putting the ball in the back of the net. Wigan are the joint second-lowest scorers in the division with only 9 goals in 11 games. Of their six home goals recorded, five of them have come in the second half of fixtures. Each of their last four games at the DW Stadium have gone under 2.5 goals. That is not a bad trend to consider at all. Wigan have opened the scoring only four times this season.
