Our football match prediction:
The DW Stadium will host Saturday’s football match between Wigan Athletic and Brentford. The Latics showed character in the relegation six-pointer against Burton Albion and they will be looking to build on the triumph when they take on Brentford on day 27. Warren Joyce’s men are eager to escape the relegation zone and we predict that the hosts will fight tooth and nail against Dean Smith’s charges. Wigan are desperate to secure the Championship survival and we are tempted to put our money on the relegation-threatened side. The Bees sit in 15th place in the standings ahead of the trip to Wigan and they have little to play for in Saturday’s clash. Brentford recorded a routine 3-0 win over Wigan Athletic in the reverse fixture at Griffin Park, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge. Full-back Callum Connolly scored a brace against Burton Albion, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay.
Highlighted Player (Donervon Daniels):
Donervon Daniels is a 186-cm-tall defender who plays for Wigan Athletic. He was born in Montserrat on 24 November, 1993 and he is a product of WBA football academy. After spending several seasons on loan at Tranmere Rovers, Gillingham, Blackpool and Aberdeen, Daniels signed for Wigan Athletic on a three-year-contract on June, 2015 and he netted his first goal for the Latics against Scunthorpe United two months later. He made 33 appearances for Wigan in the 2015/2016 League One campaign and no doubt he helped the club secure promotion to the Championship. His main position is centre back, but he is capable of playing at right back as well. His highest market value was €250 000 on May 30, 2016. Daniels has contract with Wigan Athletic which expires on 30 June, 2018. It has to be noted that that he was awarded WBA Young Player of the Year for the 2011/2012 season. Donvervon Daniels is a right-footed player.
Highlighted Team (Brentford):
Based in London, Brentford compete in the Championship and they were founded in 1898. Griffin Park has been the home ground of the club since 1904 and the capacity of the venue is 12,300. The Bees have yet to play in the Premier League and it has to be noted that they made it to the FA Cup sixth round on four occasions (1937/1938, 1945/1946,1948/1949, 1988/1989). Brentford played in the League Cup round 4 in the 1982/1983 and 2010/2011 season and that is the club’s biggest success in the competition. Brentford’s main rivals are Fulham and Queens Park Rangers and they take on each other in the West London Derby. The rivalry with the Cottagers is probably the biggest and you should bear in mind that the clashes between the two teams have always been marred by crowd violence. The colour of Brenftord’s shirts is red and white and they wear black shorts.
