Our football match prediction:
Seeing that Wigan Athletic suffered a 2-1 loss to Brighton on Monday, this has to go down as a must-win game for the hosts. The Latics are four points behind the “safe zone” and only a win counts for them this time out. Wigan footballers need to be at their sharpest in upcoming fixtures if they are to avoid relegation to the League One and we predict that they will leave their hearts on the field in Saturday’s football match. The Latics defeated the likes of Rotherham United and Barnsley in previous two home games in the Championship and that is giving fans a reason for optimism. Cardiff City, on the other hand, aim to build on a hard-fought win over Nottingham Forest, but seeing that the Bluebirds have little to play for in the DW Stadium clash, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the relegation strugglers in this one.
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.

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.

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 (Cardiff City):
Cardiff City are a Welsh football club that compete in the English second tier (Championship). In 2009 they moved from Ninian Park to Cardiff City Stadium, the venue that officially holds 33,280 spectators. The Bluebirds played their first ever Premier League match on 18 August, 2013, but they were beaten by West Ham United (0-2) on their debut in the English top flight. However, a week later Fraizer Campbell (two goals) and Aron Gunnarson helped Cardiff City record their first ever win in the Premier League. The Bluebirds outplayed Manchester City back then, but they eventually dropped to the Championship at the end of the season. Fellow Welsh outfit Swansea City are considered Cardiff’s fiercest rivals and the two teams take on each other in the South Wales derby. The colour of Cardiff City’s home kit is blue, whilst they wear red shirts and shorts when playing on the travels.
