Preston North End vs Wigan Athletic - Championship Match Prediction
- Feb 25, 2023, 8:50:41 AM
Preston North End and Wigan Athletic will face off in a crucial Championship match on Saturday afternoon. Both teams are looking for a win, with Preston hoping to keep their playoff hopes alive and Wigan looking to climb out of the relegation zone.
Despite Preston's position in the table, their recent form has not been great, with four winless games this month. Wigan, on the other hand, have shown signs of improvement under new manager Shaun Maloney, with four games unbeaten since his appointment.
Preston will be without Emil Riis Jakobsen due to injury, while Ched Evans is suspended. Wigan may be without Omar Rekik, and Martin Kelly is out for the season.
We predict a 1-0 win for Wigan Athletic, who have been playing better under their new manager and will be looking to climb out of the relegation zone. However, with both teams fighting for important points, anything could happen on the day.
Pick: Wigan Athletic (+1)
