Two sides separated by just a solitary point in the Championship table are set go head to head at the DW Stadium on Saturday, October 8th.
The clash in question will see mid-table Wigan Athletic play host to Cardiff City.
Starting with the former, Wigan head into proceedings eyeing a return to winning ways.
The Latics were back in action on Wednesday night, making the trip to Hull in the hopes of building on an impressive 2-0 downing of Rotherham in the club’s post-international break return to the pitch.
When all was said and done, though, goals Dimitrios Pelkas and the in-form Oscar Estpunian condemned Leam Richardson’s troops to a 2-1 defeat.
Wigan, in turn, sit 12th in the Championship table, albeit in the knowledge that the tight nature of the English 2nd tier at present means a win this weekend could catapult them back into the thick of the battle for playoff position.
Turning attentions to the Latics’ upcoming opponents, Cardiff enjoyed an altogether more fruitful outing in their own midweek clash.
After securing a credible share of the spoils against promotion-chasing Burnley at the weekend, the Bluebirds followed up with a victory on Tuesday night.
This came as Mark Harris’ late strike proved enough to guide the Welsh outfit to a deserved 1-0 downing of Blackburn Rovers.
Mark Hudson’s men, as a result, have climbed to within a point of their upcoming hosts, as well as, even more significantly, a full five points clear of West Bromwich Albion and the relegation zone.
We at 101 therefore predict that Cardiff’s run of just one defeat in four will stretch beyond the upcoming round of fixtures, albeit by means of a draw with Wigan.
When it comes to potential goalscorers to keep an eye on at the DW Stadium on Saturday, Will Keane looks a solid bet, with the Latics standout fresh off goals in each of his last two Championship appearances, and, all told, three in four.
