Stevenage vs Wigan preview: latest form, news, and potential lineups
Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for this duel, including our predicted Stevenage vs Wigan lineups.
Stevenage remain in the top 6 but they feel a bit of pressure after suffering back-to-back defeats. On Tuesday night played a decent game on their visit to Bolton but still lost 2-3. Reid’s goal once again nearly brought a positive result and the striker can't stop scoring right now. He has 8 goals in 9 league appearances and has scored in 5 of his last 6 starts.
This will be the first-ever match between the sides and the Stags would be pumped up to end their negative run now they are back on home turf.
Stevenage’s manager Evans likes to rotate his team and he is expected to do so again. The only players set to miss are wing-backs Anderson and Smith.
Ashby-Hammond (GK), Sweeney, Vancooten, Piergianni, James-Wildin, Forster-Caskey, Thompson, Butler, Roberts, Pressley & Reid
Wigan remain in the relegation zone. This combination of points deduction ahead of the season and 3 consecutive defeats in the last 3 rounds. On Tuesday the Latics lost 1-2 away vs Burton. The game was close for about 50 minutes but after that Wigan got visibly tired and never stood a chance once the hosts opened a 2-0 lead.
Defenders Kerr and Carragher remain sidelined and the former has been missed a lot. 19-year-old Hughes starts in his place and he has been very error-prone lately.
Tickle (GK), Pearce, Watts, Morrison, Hughes, Clare, Smith, Adeeko, Aasgaard, Humphrys & Magennis
The teams usually announce their starting lineups one hour before the start of the game.
Player to Watch: Jamie Reid
Steveange’s striker Jamie Reid has looked hugely impressive so far. He scored 7 goals in the last 6 matches. Netted 8 goals in 9 league appearances and has been the go-to man up front for the Stags.
Reid is bound to get good service again now against the shaky Wigan defence and we can see him continuing his lethal form.
