For all of our match predictions, pre-game poll and statistics for Wigan v Hull City, scroll down - plus the latest match odds.
Wigan go into this match after a 0-0 Championship stalemate vs Barnsley.
Barnsley got 8 shots on goal with 3 on target.
An interesting characteristic of recent Wigan Athletic games is the number of results with a nil in them.
Taking their previous 6 clashes before this one, in 6 of them a bet on BTTS would've been a loser.
Their past results show that Wigan:
- have not emerged victorious against Hull City in their previous 2 league matches.
- are unbeaten in their last 6 league matches at home.
Following on from suffering a loss in their previous game against Millwall in Championship action, Hull City will be hoping to turn things around here.
In that match, Hull City managed 42% possession and 11 shots at goal with 5 on target. On the other side, Millwall had 10 shots at goal with 2 of them on target. Ryan Leonard (2') scored for Millwall.
The numbers tell their own story, and Hull City have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 matches, letting opponents get 12 goals in all. Defensively, The Tigers just haven’t been too solid at all. That sort of trend isn’t assured to be sustained here, however.
Going into this game, the form guide shows that Hull City:
- have left without a victory over Wigan Athletic when having played them away from home in the previous 3 league games.
- are without an away win for the past 8 league matches. What a terrible run of away results.
Head to head
A review of their prior head to head meetings dating back to 02/01/2010 tells us that Wigan have won 3 of these & Hull City 1, with the number of drawn results being 2.
Loads of goals were seen in those games, too - 24 overall at an average of 4 goals per meeting.
The previous league encounter between the two was Championship match day 7 on 14/09/2019 when it finished Hull City 2-2 Wigan Athletic.
In that game, Hull City managed 41% possession and 16 attempts at goal with 3 on target. The goalscorers were Jarrod Bowen (10') and Kamil Grosicki (20').
At the other end, Wigan Athletic had 10 shots at goal with 3 of them on target. Chey Dunkley (8') and Joe Gelhardt (75') scored.
The referee was Gavin Ward.
Team News: Wigan
Nearly everyone is up for selection, with just the lone fitness concern for the Wigan manager Paul Cook to be concerned with from an otherwise complete group. Antonee Robinson (Groin Injury) is sidelined. The players ineligible for this match because of suspension are Danny Fox and Joe Garner.
It looks as if The Latics will possibly go for a 4-2-3-1 formation, handing starts to David Marshall, Antonee Robinson, Tom Pearce, Cédric Kipré, Nathan Byrne, Joseph Michael Williams, Sam Morsy, Jamal Lowe, Kieran Dowell, Kal Naismith and Kieffer Moore.
Team News: Hull City
Thanks to a largely healthy group of players, there’s just a single fitness worry for the Hull City gaffer Grant McCann to be concerned with. Angus MacDonald (Cancer) misses out for this game.
We are inclined to think that The Tigers might make use of a 4-4-1-1 lineup by sending out George Long, Reece Burke, Jordy de Wijs, Angus MacDonald, Callum Elder, Josh Bowler, Daniel Batty, Leonardo da Silva Lopes, James Scott, Jon Toral and Josh Magennis.
We’ve got the feeling that Hull City will have to play well to find the net against this Wigan outfit who should score one, at least.
We therefore see a hard-fought contest, finishing with a 1-0 advantage for Wigan when the full-time whistle blows.
