Reason For Wigan vs Stoke City Predictions

  • Wigan are second behind Leeds in the form table across the last eight games.
  • Stoke have failed to win any of their last five away trips.
  • Wigan have the joint-best record in the Championship in 2020.
  • The hosts have won five of their last six games, keeping a clean sheet in all six.

Wigan’s rise

Stoke are looking to complete a league double over Wigan for the first time since 1998-99 having won this season’s reverse meeting 2-1 in November 2019. However, they are meeting a very different Wigan side seven months on. Now the Latics are looking like a force to be reckoned with, having surged away from danger.

Only Leeds (19) have claimed more points across the last eight games than Wigan – 18 from a possible 24. That has opened up a five-point cushion for them over the bottom three. Stoke aren’t that well off, they’re only a point clear of danger following their home defeat to Middlesbrough. We see more problems for the Potters in our latest predictions.

Concerns for Stoke

When the Championship resumed, Stoke seemed like a side who would make a short step towards safety. Clashes with Reading and Middlesbrough were a soft start, especially with manager Michael O’Neill turning around their fortunes. Two games and one point later, the Potters are sitting dangerously close to the drop zone, with fears of a League One campaign now growing.

Stoke are winless in their last five away league games, with the last three of them ending level (L2). They are going to face a battle for the points in this one, especially given how off the pace they’ve looked since the return. Their goal threat is limited here, with former Wigan man Nick Powell banned. That will make it even tougher to break through this solid Wigan backline.

Latics on another level

No Championship side has taken more points in 2020 so far than Wigan (27), with the Latics on the longest current unbeaten run in the division (8 games). Wigan have won five of their last six league matches (D1), keeping a clean sheet in all six games. That impressive turnaround from Paul Cook’s team followed a string of solid displays which weren’t being rewarded.

Wigan’s confidence has stuck around across the break, while they’re looking impressive since the restart. We expect them to extend their great record, with Stoke looking off the pace. Given how well the Latics are playing, their price is incredibly surprising. You could find value backing them Double Chance or Draw No Bet, but we’re confident enough to back them to win outright.

We expect this to be a close game, given that 12 of Wigan’s 19 home games have seen under 2.5 goals scored. Their strong defensive record of late should see them hold Stoke at bay, so we are going with a 1-0 victory for the Latics as our correct score prediction in this one.
