Our Prediction:

Bristol City will win

Bristol City – Wigan Match Prediction | 27-10-2019 09:30

The hosts are up to sixth following their success in midweek. A 1-0 win away to Middlesbrough has kicked them on in their top six bid, with that victory taking them into fifth. We recently went through the playoff chase and analysed the chances of all involved. Lee Johnson will be hoping to guide his side to a strong finish, but will they be able to follow up back to back victories? The Robins are now two points clear of seventh, but its not going to be easy for them to finish off the job.

Bristol suffered a bit a few match-days back, but they are slowly getting back into their groove. The team occupies the fifth spot in the table right now and is just above Aston Villa. Once or if Aston overtakes Bristol, they would be open to fire from almost all the other teams trying to get into the top-six. But the point of concern is that Bristol has just a single-point lead over Aston, and the latter is in deadly form.

Their only recent matches were during the 2016-17 season, however, when Bristol City won both games. Wigan have only won five of their previous 24 matches against Bristol City, drawing seven and losing 12 of the others. Hordor Magnusson and Bobby Reid scored late in a 2-1 win at Ashton Gate and Aden Flint grabbed the late winner at the DW Stadium.

Bristol City Team News, Updates and Facts

Wigan come here with six defeats in their last seven on the road, while theyve failed to win in 17 straight games on their travels. We expect the hosts to cruise to another home victory, especially as Wigan have lost away to every top half side theyve faced so far this season. While Bristol City havent been all that consistent at home this season, they come into this one following impressive wins over Middlesbrough and Sheffield United.

The Latics come here with huge issues of their own, given that theyve been left just four points clear of the drop zone going into the final stretch of matches. Their bid for a Premier League place continues this weekend, with Wigan their opponents. They could be pushed even closer to the drop again this weekend, but can they produce a massive shock and come away with a result in this trip? Bristol Citys form is back on course, meaning things are looking up at Ashton Gate again.

If they manage to get back on winning track soon, away side is going to challenge one of the top six spots. Andreas Weimann and the lads are playing very well in front of the oppositions goal, but their defence allowed too many goals so far. The latest defeat was their first and only one when playing away from home and Bristol City are the second best visiting team in the competition.

Nathan Baker is used as both centre-back and left-back and the 189-cm-tall footballer is very good in the air. Nathan Baker is a product of Aston Villa football academy. The left-footed defender played 115 games for Aston Villa in the league and it has to be noted that he scored only goal for the club during his spell at Villa Park.

Marley Watkins then scored in both a 4-1 thrashing of Blackburn Rovers and a 1-0 win at home to Sheffield United before the West Brom loss. Bristol Citys four-match winning streak was ended by West Brom last time out, as they suffered a 4-2 defeat at the Hawthorns despite Lloyd Kelly and Famara Diedhious second-half goals. They had previously won 3-0 at QPR, with Andreas Weimann scoring twice, and 1-0 at Swansea courtesy of the same player.

At home on Tuesday, they saw off a confident Hull side 2-1 thanks to goals from Sam Morsy, after his red card against Brentford was rescinded, and new signing Josh Windass. However, Wigan finished the match strongly and could have scored several more with some excellent attacking play. The team did well to repel Hull attacks, particularly in the first half, as the away side played some good football and got a goal back through Jarrod Bowen.
