Today's Predictions for Wigan vs Millwall

Millwall have won only one of their last six games ahead of their trip to play bottom club Wigan on Saturday. Read our top Wigan vs Millwall predictions for this weekend’s fixture.

Wigan Double Chance

Though they are still rooted to the foot of the Championship table, Wigan reignited their survival hopes with a 1-0 win at Stoke on Tuesday evening and the Latics could harness home advantage to put more points on the board when they host Millwall this weekend. The visitors have won only once in seven assignments in the second tier, while Wigan have tasted defeat only once in six games at the DW Stadium. Driven on by their success in midweek, we think the hosts have an opportunity here and our opening Wigan vs Millwall prediction recommends siding with them in the double chance market.

Under 2.5 Goals

Wigan are the second-lowest scoring outfit in the Championship this season, though they’ve also been tight at the other end when competing on home soil of late, and as a result, 100% of their last seven fixtures in the second tier have featured under 2.5 goals. Millwall have also been toiling in the final third in recent weeks, failing to score in five of their last six games overall, so bettors shouldn’t expect fireworks in Wigan on Saturday. Another stake on under 2.5 goals seems to fit the factors here.

Wigan vs Millwall Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates, Wigan vs Millwall lineups and team news for Saturday’s Championship fixture below.

Wigan

Wigan have just a couple of injury worries to contend with this week, with long-term absentees Martin Kelly and Jason Kerr listed as their only headaches. Midfielder Danel Sinani's knock is worse than initially feared though, and he faces an extended spell on the sidelines until the middle of next month.

Predicted Lineup for Wigan: Jones – Rekik, Whatmough, Nyambe – Darikwa, Power, Tiehi, McClean – Lang, Keane, Magennis

Millwall

Charlie Cresswell, Tyler Burey, George Honeyman and Murray Wallace are all listed as injured for Millwall at present. Gary Rowett's side lost 1-0 at home to Birmingham on Tuesday evening and their spot in the playoff positions looks under threat this weekend.

Predicted Lineup for Millwall: Long – McNamara, Hutchinson, Cooper, Malone – Mitchell, Saville, Burke, Flemming, Voglsammer – Bradshaw

Player to Watch – Will Keane

Will Keane ended a lengthy run without a goal in midweek when he netted Wigan’s winner at Stoke and the 30-year-old, who hadn’t registered since January 14th before that, should be itching to pull the trigger again when he lines up against Millwall on Saturday afternoon.

Official lineups are usually released approximately one hour before kick-off.
