Exeter – Wigan preview: latest form, news, and potential lineups

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for this duel, including our predicted Exeter vs Wigan lineups.

Exeter

Exeter welcomed the international break as they needed time to regroup and reassess things. The Grecians lost 5 of their last 6 league games and rumours are that coach Caldwell is on his last warning right now. 

The inability to defend combined with ineffective forward actions led to this bad run of form. 

There is some hope that the forward actions will improve now. Striker Muskwe is finally over an ankle injury and he could be making his first start of the season in this one. Also, important attacking midfielders Watts and Carroll are expected to be passed fit on time and return after both were absent for multiple weeks recently. 

The issues in defence remain though with 3 likely starters still missing from that area. Centre-back Diabate and the pair of main wing-backs Rankine and Niskanen continue rehabilitation. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Sinisalo (GK), Sweeney, Aimson, Hartridge, Jules, Kite, Carroll, Harper, Cole, Scott & Muskwe

Wigan

Wigan started the season well but they lost form in September and have never rediscovered it. In the last round disastrous start led to a logical 0-1 defeat vs Stevenage. Conceded early and then got a man sent off even before halftime. 

Wigan have now lost 4 league games in a row and the pressure is growing fast. 

This will be the first official match between the sides since 1997 but Wigan boast a perfect record in this fixture – 6 wins in 6 previous meetings.

Wigan’s front line is badly crippled for this trip with the pair of main striker Lang and Wyke missing the game suspended. It’s very hard to replace one of them let alone both with the pair scoring 70% of Wigan’s goal so far. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Tickle (GK), Rekik, Hughes, Watts, McManaman, Adeeko, Aasgaard, Sessegnon, Humphrys, Godo & Magennis 

​Starting Lineups

The teams usually announce their starting lineups one hour before the start of the game.

​Player to Watch: William Aimson

Exeter are in free fall now. The only way the Grecians can stop their losing streak is to improve defensively. For that to happen the leader of the back line Will Aimson needs to step up. 

The 29-year-old Aimson has been one of many shaky defenders so far. He can be much better and we pick him as our player to watch as if somebody will lead Exeter by example in defence in this match it is most likely to be Aimson.
