Reason For Charlton vs Wigan Predictions

  • Wigan’s 8-0 win over Hull was their eighth win in 11
  • The Latics have kept a clean sheet in 10 of their last 11
  • Charlton have lost 1-0 in three of their last four home games

Battle at the bottom

Wigan hit the headlines with their 8-0 thumping of Hull on Tuesday. That victory moved them within three points of the top half, but Wigan aren’t yet safe from the drop. The possibility of a 12-point penalty means that Wigan could slip from 13th to level with 22nd placed Hull. While their midweek win leaves the Latics safe on goal difference, they’re hanging by a thread despite an incredibly impressive run of form.

If Wigan lose their points appeal, then that would be good news for Charlton. The Addicks would be bumped up to 20th as it stands, with their midweek draw leaving them two points clear of the drop. Effectively this is a meeting between two of the bottom five as far as Wigan are concerned, so it’s a vital encounter in the battle to beat the drop. We think the visitors can edge it in our predictions for this one.

Latics add to great form

While Wigan hit eight in midweek, that result on built on their impressive run of form in 2020. They come into this clash behind Leeds and Brentford in the form table across their last eight matches. They have picked up 37 points since January 1. Over the course of the season that average would see them secure 89 points from 46 games, a tally that only Leeds can better this season.

Wigan’s high-scoring return on Tuesday also came alongside their 10th clean sheet in 11 matches. Only Brentford – a side who have won eight on the bounce – have scored against them in that run. The Latics have won eight of those 11, which puts them in a great position to edge out a Charlton side who are barely hanging on to their Championship status.

Wigan can prey on Valley weakness

Charlton have lost three of their last four games in the league, which has left them narrowly above the drop. The Addicks are really struggling for results at home following last weekend’s 1-0 defeat to Reading. Charlton have lost three of their last four games at home by that scoreline, as they’ve suffered going forward without striker Lyle Taylor to back them up.

The Addicks have already been beaten nine times at home this term and we’re backing them for another. Wigan look brimming with confidence and they head into this one with a chance to push another side into relegation danger. Based on the respective form of both sides, we are siding with the Latics here. We are also going with another 1-0 defeat for Charlton in our correct score prediction.
