Our match prediction:
Wigan Athletic have been slipping down the standings week by week. The Latics suffered a 2-1 loss to Norwich City on Tuesday evening, with the team extending their losing run to four matches in the Championship. The newcomers do not seem capable of producing fine displays at this level, but Saturday’s football match against Fulham could be the turning point for the DW Stadium outfit. The Cottagers scored a late equaliser in a 1-1 draw with Burton Albion in midweek and they are now on a quest to start a new winning run in the Championship. Fulham have been producing scintillating performances under Slavisa Jokanovic and we predict that the Cottagers are going to start a new winning run on Saturday afternoon. You should have in mind that Fulham are after their third away win of the season as they have already defeated Preston and Blackburn Rovers on the road.

Highlighted Team (Fulham):
Fulham are a club from London that play in the Championship. The capital club dropped to the English second tier at the end of the 2013/2014 Premier League campaign after failing to impress in the elite competition. Fulham were founded in 1879 and they play their home matches at Craven Cottage. Fulham are the oldest-established club from the English capital to have played in the top flight. Fulham finished the 2008/2009 Premier League campaign in seventh place in the standings and that is considered the team’s biggest success, speaking of their participation in the Premier League. The Cottagers played in the Europa League twice and they did well to reach the FA Cup final in 1975, but they were beaten by their local rivals West Ham United in the title game (0-2). Chelsea are regarded as Fulham’s bitter rivals as well and the two teams take on each other in the North London derby.
