Our football match prediction:
Rotherham United were on the verge of playing out a goalless draw with Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough Stadium, but Steven Fletcher eventually scored a late winner for the Owls from the penalty spot. The Millers are stuck at the bottom in the Championship standings and, as things stand now, they are likely to drop to the League One at the end of the season. Anyhow, Rotherham’s pride will be at stake in Monday’s football game against Wigan Athletic and we predict that the hosts will leave their hearts on the field. The Millers suffered six defeats in previous seven league matches and that is the main reason why home win should not be considered. The Latics are on a four-match losing run ahead of the relegation six-pointer and, considering that they are desperate to return to winning ways, there is every chance both teams will find the net on Matchday 23.

Daniel Danny Ward is a goalkeeper who was born on 22 June, 1993 in Wrexham, Wales. The 191-cm-tall shoot-stopper is a product of Wrexham Academy, but he did not make his senior debut for the club.

He made just two league appearances for the Anfield outfit and in 2015 he signed a loan deal with Morecambe.

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).
