Our Prediction:

Wigan will win

Wigan – Charlton Match Prediction | 22-09-2019 10:00

After failing to win previous six league matches, Wigan Athletic will be looking to return to winning ways in the Championship when they host Charlton Athletic at their DW Stadium on Saturday afternoon. The Latics are desperate to move away from the danger zone, but the game against the Red Robbins will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts.

Bookmakers are taking a long term view that over the course of the whole season these sides will be close in the final table rather than the big gap between them at the moment. The price on Jonathan Leko looks far too big on a player who will be featuring up front for the Addicks. Charlton though have won at Blackburn and Reading so far so they look too big to win here. That and home advantage is why Wigan are favourites. Taking them with the safety of the draw no bet looks the best option as even without Lyle Taylor they should have enough firepower.

The capital club have been playing above expectations in the 2019/2020 season and, as a result, they sit in third position in the standings ahead of the trip to Wigan. Charlton Athletic did well to beat Reading at Madejski Stadium in their last away game in the league, which is probably the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on the visitors. When the two teams met at the DW Stadium in 2015 Charlton Athletic crushed Wigan Athletic 3-0.

Predicted Lineups

Wigan have lost four times already, while Leeds won at this ground not too long ago. The Latics went down to the top sides in the division last season, while they look worse this time around. With Charlton flying high, we are backing the Addicks to secure another three points here. We are backing a 2-1 away win alongside a couple of goals for the visitors.

He scored his first Championship goal on September 18, 2018 in a 2-1 win over Hull City. Two years later Josh Windass joined Wigan Athletic and he has been playing for the DW Stadium outfit ever since. The 175-cm-tall midfielder began his senior career at Accrington Stanley and after scoring 22 goals in 77 appearances in the league for the club, he moved to Glasgow Rangers in the summer of 2016.

Charlton should get forward and add to the goals theyve already racked up on the road. Were going with over 1.5 Charlton team goals in this clash, given Wigans terrible run of results. Given that Wigan cant stop conceding goals, we are going with Charlton to score a couple once again here. Their unbeaten away record comes after the scored twice in each of their last three trips.

The Latics are desperate to move away from the danger zone, but the game against the Red Robbins will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. After failing to win previous six league matches, Wigan Athletic will be looking to return to winning ways in the Championship when they host Charlton Athletic at their DW Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

As mentioned earlier, there have been celebrations in the first half itself whenever the teams meet here. Moreover, they couldnt even score a goal against the visitors in those two games. Even though Wigan have more wins from the home matches, they did have difficulty in the last two meetings with Charlton. As such, we can expect that to happen, especially with the visitors in such good from.

They will be hoping that this weekends return to the DW Stadium can help them put some points back on the board, but the visit to Charlton doesnt seem all that promising for the hosts. The Latics may have kicked things off with a victory, but with six-games without a win they are in serious trouble. Wigan have plummeted towards the bottom of the Championship following their awful run of form.

That followed a 2-0 loss at home to Leeds, which suggests that Wigans home form might not save them this time. The Latics had the perfect chance to put things right in their last home game, which saw them draw 0-0 with Barnsley. Wigan have drawn back to back games, which at least ended a five-game losing streak in all competitions. The hosts are aiming to restore their great home record of last season, which saw them lift almost 80% of their total points at their own ground.

However, they can get on without him in this trip given how poor Wigan look. A 1-0 loss at home to Birmingham last week was a blow, with the Addicks missing forward Lyle Taylor. The Addicks have hung in the playoff spots a lot longer than anyone predicted, with their surprising start showing just what a brilliant job Lee Bowyer is doing. Making matters worse is this weekends visit of third-placed Charlton.

Charlton Athletic did well to beat Reading at Madejski Stadium in their last away game in the league, which is probably the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on the visitors.
