Birmingham vs Wigan Predictions

  • Birmingham City have drawn three of their five competitive games so far this season.
  • Wigan Athletic have drawn all three Championship matches played this term.
  • Birmingham’s last home game finished 1-1, as did Wigan’s last two league matches.

All signs point to a draw

All signs point to Saturday’s St Andrew’s skirmish between two clubs thought to be among the leading relegation candidates at the start of the season finishing all square. Birmingham City and Wigan Athletic were among the six teams believed to be in the deepest trouble before a ball was kicked and, although both have given reasons for optimism, they face an uphill struggle to retain their Championship status.

The Blues began well with a draw at Luton and a home win over Huddersfield, but last week’s defeat at Cardiff saw them lose key defender Marc Roberts to injury. He missed Tuesday’s 1-1 draw with Watford in which his teammates showed plenty of character, but not enough quality to ever look like winning.

And Roberts will be out again when a fresh Wigan side without a game in midweek arrive in Birmingham looking for their first win of the campaign. The League One champions have some issues of their own as goalkeeper Ben Amos sustained an Achilles injury in their 1-1 draw with Bristol City last weekend.

Latics can make their point 

Former first-choice gloveman Jamie Jones will deputise while Curtis Tilt is touch and go to return from hamstring and groin issues. The Latics have drawn all three of their Championship games so far this term and three of their last seven in the division below last season, so it seems to be a habit they can’t quite break.

John Eustace’s side will attempt to start in a positive fashion again and get the crowd behind them, but Wigan showed their character in surviving Norwich’s early onslaught a fortnight ago and can make their point – again.

A 1-1 draw has been the recurring theme of Wigan’s season and, after the Blues’ midweek game against the Hornets also finished that way, looks to be the best correct score play for Saturday’s encounter.
