Swindon Town v Wigan Athletic Preview, League One, Friday 25th March 2016

Swindon Town head into this game on Friday evening having had a difficult season upto now and with just ten games to go their main aim now will be to avoid becoming involved in a relegation fight for survival.

Luke Williams side are currently 13pts clear from the relegation places on 50pts, but would probably still need to finish the season with at least 60pts to be certain of avoiding relegation to league two so every point from here on in is vital for the club and as such I expect them to put up quite a fight in front of their home crowd in this one

Wigan Athletic had a slow start to their season, but have been racking up the points in recent months and now occupy second place in the league one table on 68pts which puts them 6pts behind current league leaders Burton Albion.

Gary Caldwell’s side head into this game having remained unbeaten since the 12th December last year and definitely look likely to secure at least an automatic end of season promotion place back to the championship if they can keep the run going.

Swindon Town Team News:

Swindon will have Jamie Sendles-White available for their clash with Wigan despite the defender’s call-up to the Northern Ireland Under-21 squad.

Sendles-White is due to join up with his international colleagues after Friday’s match and will therefore miss Monday’s trip to Scunthorpe.

On-loan Liverpool goalkeeper Lawrence Vigouroux missed last weekend’s goalless draw with Coventry due to a dead leg, with Tyrell Belford deputising in his absence. Vigouroux will be checked ahead of kick-off.

Wigan Athletic Team News:

Wigan midfielder Chris McCann returns from suspension after completing his two-match ban last weekend. Michael Jacobs (calf), Conor McAleny (hamstring) remain doubtful but defender Jason Pearce could make the squad after recovering from a knock.

Midfielder Sanmi Odelusi (foot) and defender Reece James (ankle) are also sidelined. However, Wigan have been boosted by in-form striker Will Grigg’s omission from Northern Ireland’s squad.

Swindon Town v Wigan Athletic Head to Head Statistics:

Friday night’s time game from the County Ground Stadium will become the 9th meeting between the two clubs over the years, of which Swindon Town have won 2 times overall with both of those having came with home advantage where as Wigan Athletic have picked up 3 victories overall, with none of those having came away from home.

As we can see from our head to head to head statistics table shown below, recent meetings between the two clubs shows nothing between the two clubs with both having won two games each, with the remaining match having finished all square.

31/10/15 LEO Wigan Athletic – Swindon Town 1 : 0
07/01/12 FAC Swindon Town – Wigan Athletic 2 : 1
24/01/03 LEO Swindon Town – Wigan Athletic 2 : 1

Previous Average Goals Per Game Statistics

16 Goals have been scored in the previous 8 meetings between the two clubs and this provides us with an overall average goals per game statistic of 2.00.

12 of those Goals have came in the 4 previous matches played at the County Ground Stadium and this generates us an average goal scoring statistic of 3.00.

Based on both sets of data shown above, it does seem to indicate that this game should see between two or three goals scored on Friday night and betting markets like Both Teams to Score and Total Match Goals 2 or 3 look good options.

Swindon Town v Wigan Athletic Match Predictions, Banker Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets

Swindon Town will be looking to pick up at least something from this game on Friday night as although the club is 13pts clear of the relegation threat, every point from their last ten matches is crucial for them to keep one step ahead.

Wigan Athletic on the other had are right up there at the top of the league one table in second place and just 6pts behind current league leaders Burton Albion, so a win for them is vital if they are to keep hopes alive of winning the title.

Everything to play for on Friday night and with both clubs also head into this game with very good recent form statistics, it has been a very difficult game to pick a clear winner from as the result really could go either way.

Onto some predictions then and my Banker Free Tip is going to be for Both Teams to Score as with both clubs enjoying a good period of form in recent months and both needing a win for different reasons, I can see this game seeing at least a few goals scored and both teams to score does fit in nicely with the average goals per game statistics of 3.00 when both clubs have met each other at the County Ground Stadium.

My First Goalscorer Free Tip is going to be for Wigan Athletic striker William Grigg to score the first goal of the game as with 15 goals this season he looks a good choice to add to that tally.
