Our football match prediction:
The DW Stadium will host Saturday’s relegation six-pointer between Wigan Athletic and Nottingham Forest. The Latics were beaten by QPR at Loftus Road at the weekend and, as a result, they remained in the relegation zone in the Championship standings. Warren Joyce’s men do not seem to be on top of their game at the moment, but the match against Nottingham Forest could be the turning point for the relegation strugglers. Wigan Athletic, though, recorded only one win in previous 11 home fixtures in the league and that is the main reason why home win should not be considered. The Reds are having yet another season to forget as they are only six points clear of bottom three ahead of Matchday 34. Both teams are desperate to grab something from Saturday’s football clash and we predict that both Wigan and Forest will find the net this time out.
