Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Swindon Town and Wigan Athletic take on each other at County Ground in a postponed League One fixture. The Robins suffered yet another dip in form, with the team failing to impress in back-to-back defeats to Plymouth and Hull City. Swindon Town failed to find the net in the previous two league fixtures, and as a result, the odds for away win have been dropping.
The Latics, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 5-0 loss to Blackpool. Wigan Athletic aim to put an end to their three-game winless run, and given Swindon Town’s difficulties in front of goal, we are tempted to put our money on draw. In their last meeting at County Ground the Latics rolled over the Robins 4-1, but we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw this time out.
Highlighted Player (Zeki Fryers):
Zeki Fryers is a product of Manchester United football academy who plays for Swindon Town in the League Two. Born in Manchester, England, on September 9, 1992, Fryers made two appearances for the Red Devils in the Premier League.

His preferred foot is left.
Highlighted Team (Wigan):
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).
