Our match prediction:
Norwich City did remarkably well to bounce back from a heavy 3-0 loss to Birmingham City, with the team beating Cardiff City at their Carrow Road at the weekend. The Canaries returned to winning ways, but they need to keep on collecting points if they are to return to the Premier League. Norwich City sit in fifth place in the Championship standings ahead of Tuesday’s football match against Wigan Athletic, but a win over the Latics could see them climb to second place in the table. Wigan have been totally out of form of late and they are on a three-game losing run ahead of the trip to Norwich. The Latics are low on confidence ahead of the Carrow Road clash and that is the main reason why we predict the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. Cameron Jerome will be the man to watch in the home team.
Highligted Player (Robbie Brady):
Robbie Brady is an Irish footballer who plays for Norwich City as a winger, but he is capable of playing at left back as well. Brady began his youth career at St. Kevin’s Boys, where he was spotted by Manchester United scouts. In 2008 he joined the Old Trafford outfit at age 16. He played for Manchester United U-18 team, but he did not make his debut for the senior team. The Irish footballer played for Hull City on loan in the 2011/2012 and the 2012/2013 Championship campaigns and in January, 2013 he signed a permanent deal with the Tigers for an undisclosed fee. Robbie Brady made his Republic of Ireland debut on 8 September, 2012, in a 4-1 win over Oman and it has to be noted that he scored one goal and provided two assists for his teammates in the victory over the Asian team. He represented the Boys in Green at the 2016 European Championship finals and he scored the winner against Italy that helped the team make it to the knockout stages of the showpiece tournament.
Highlighted Team (Wigan Athletic):
Wigan Athletic are one of the winners of the English FA Cup. The Latics won the prestigious trophy in 2013, with the team upsetting Manchester City in the title game. This is considered the club’s biggest success, but it has to be noted that Wigan played in the UEFA Europa League in the 2013/2014 season. Wigan have been playing their home games at the DW Stadium since 1999 and they had played at Springfield Park in the past. Chorley are considered Wigan’s fierce rivals, but the two teams last met in 1971, when they competed in the Northern Premier League. The likes of Preston North End, Bury, Oldham Athletic, Burnley and Blackburn Rovers are regarded as Wigan Athletic’s rivals as well. The club was founded in 1932 and they competed in the English Premier League from 2005 to 2013. The colour of Wigan’s home kit is blue and white (stripes).
