Tip Reasoning

Having failed to beat Bristol Rovers in the week, Wigan have opened the door for Blackburn, though the Latics still have the title in their own hands, just about. As things stand, Paul Cook’s men are a single point ahead of Blackburn with two games to go. After brushing Fleetwood aside at the weekend, Wigan would’ve very much fancied their chances against a famously open Bristol Rovers side, but try as they might, they couldn’t come out on top.

Wimbledon weren’t in action during the week, which means they should come into this fixture better prepared than the hosts. Last weekend, Neal Ardley’s men drew 2-2 with Oldham, but such a result will have been something of a disappointment. Having led not but twice, Wimbledon really ought to have come out on top last time out, but they remain tough to beat. It’s now four matches since the Dons last tasted defeat.

If we look at the league table this is an easy fixture to call. Wigan are by far the better side and thus they ought to come out on top in somewhat simple fashion. However, Wimbledon have proven to be a thorn in the side of several teams over the last few months, so this may not be the most straightforward of games for the hosts.

Wigan are of course good enough to dismantle any team in this division, as they’ve shown at regular intervals this season. Having said that, they have slipped up on a few occasions, while their performances haven’t always been perfect. Bristol Rovers, who’re often very weak at the back, did an unusually good job of keeping Wigan quiet in the week, while the Latics also struggled to find their feet going forward in their most recent home match, failing to score against Rotherham.

Wimbledon are of course a side that can be beaten, but they have done well of late when it comes to both keeping things tight and keeping themselves in games. In fact, Neal Ardley’s men haven’t been beaten by more than a single goal since February, while they’ve only conceded more than once twice since then.

In truth, Wigan do offer a lot more than Wimbledon going forward and they ought to have enough about them to get the job done, but if the visitors are as defiant as they can be, or as they were when facing the likes of Scunthorpe and Rotherham away from home earlier in the season, then the home fans at the DW may not be applauding too many goals.

All things considered, as they go up against a visiting side who’ll be happy to get men behind the ball, Wigan are backed to come out on top without going crazy in the goals department. ‘Wigan to Win & Under 3.5 Goals’ gets the nod.
