Stoke City vs Wigan Athletic match preview

Two sides in the midst of underwhelming recent stretches of form are set to lock horns in a Championship clash at The Bet365 Stadium this Tuesday, April 18th.

The matchup in question will see Stoke City act as hosts, in a meeting with Wigan Athletic.

Beginning with the former, since a stellar run of results between late February and early April, Stoke have since gone off the boil in a major way.

All told, the Potters have managed just a solitary win in their last five, notching a single point from an available nine over the course of the last fortnight.

Most recently, this past weekend, a home meeting with West Bromwich Albion saw Alex Neil’s troops surrender an early advantage, en route to an eventual 2-1 defeat.

Such woes, all told, have brought a firm end to Stoke’s charge towards mid-table, with the Potters now in a lowly 16th, with little to play for over the closing weeks of the campaign.

This comes with upcoming opponents Wigan Athletic, of course, League One-bound.

The Latics, over the weekend, saw any remaining sliver of hope of a late escape ended, courtesy of a hard-fought defeat at the hands of fellow relegation candidates Blackpool.

This, all told, marked a third defeat on the bounce, with Shaun Maloney’s men now cut adrift at the bottom of the Championship table, eight points from safety with just four games to play.

Safe to say, then, that confidence will be at an all-time low across Wigan’s squad heading into Tuesday’s Bet365 Stadium showdown.

And we at 101, for obvious reasons, are therefore backing hosts Stoke to ultimately emerge on the right side of the result come the full-time whistle in Staffordshire.
