Wigan v Accrington– 19.45 GMT kickoff
(79% of F88 predictions have been correct this season.)
Wigan started the season in great form and showed their intent right from the start. Their form hasn’t been all that consistent in recent weeks but they’ll be keen to win this one tonight.
Accrington have won 3 from their last 5 – as have Wigan- and will be looking to exploit any weaknesses in the Wigan defence tonight. They know Wigan are good enough on their day, but they are not invincible.
Wigan have seen off Crawley Town and Middlesbrough U23’s and Accrington are capable of giving them a run tonight in their current form. They’ve proved pretty consistent this season and appear to be a well-organised outfit. It should be a close match.
This is the first time the two have met in competition and the it will be interesting to see how it plays out tactically.
Accrington will definitely be up for this and would like nothing more than to take the win at Wigan’s home ground. The home side will need to be be strong.
Wigan v Accrington- summary
Both teams have similar credentials- albeit from different leagues. Home advantage should be a big advantage here and we’ll take Wigan to take this, though it should very close.
