Reason For Huddersfield vs Wigan Predictions

  • Wigan have won 3 of their last 4 Championship games.
  • The Latics have the 3rd highest points return across the last 8 games.
  • Wigan have won 3 of their last 4 away trips.
  • None of the last 5 meetings between this pair have seen a home win.

Relegation Fight

When the Championship shut down back in March, Wigan were the surprise form side at the time. The relegation strugglers were matching – and beating – the teams leading the promotion charge.

These two sides resume the season still in the fight to avoid the drop. They are just a point apart going into this meeting at the John Smith’s Stadium. The big question here is how Wigan bridge the three-month gap. We’re backing them to pick up where they left off in our predictions.

Wigan’s Run

Wigan come into this nine-game finish with the third-best record across the last eight games. They’ve won three of their last four matches in the Championship, with only the top two picking up more points in that run. During their turnaround, Wigan have won away to both of the top two.

Wigan have peaked on the road, following a year and a half of terrible results on their travels. The Latics have just four away wins this season, which have all come in their last six matches. Games behind closed doors seem to have lessened home advantage, so Wigan have the opportunity to build on that fantastic record in their coming away games.

Huddersfield didn’t have much of a home advantage to start with, as they’ve lost seven of 19 home matches so far this term. The Terriers have won just two of their last six games in the league, so if Wigan do come here and hit form then the hosts could struggle.

Tough for Terriers

The test for Wigan is to prove that they weren’t just going on momentum. However, recent games between them give the edge to the Latics, as none of the last five have been won by the home team. Wigan may not be running on their great form, but the impact of their turnaround must have boosted morale over the last three months. For us, the value here lies with backing Wigan to avoid defeat.

We are going with Wigan to pull off a result here, as they’re well priced on the Double Chance market. With restart rust potentially hitting both sides, we’re also backing an open game. A 2-1 victory for the Latics is our correct score prediction, which landed in their last meeting at this ground.
