Bristol City vs. Wigan Prediction, Tips & Stats

For our Bristol City vs. Wigan prediction, we're going for a 2-0 win for the home side.

Bristol City are hoping to continue their strong run of form as they welcome Wigan Athletic to Ashton Gate this week.

Bristol City currently sit 13th in the Championship with ten wins, nine draws and eleven losses from thirty games this season.

The Robins began the season excellently and had many onlookers believing they were a legitimate promotion contender with a string of impressive performances, but a steep dip soon followed and they've spent much of the last few months harmlessly lingering around the bottom half of the table.

However, an improved run of form has sparked life into Nigel Pearson's side as they enter this game having won five and drawn one of their last six matches in all competitions, the most recent of which was a 1-0 win over promotion chasing Norwich City courtesy of a goal from Mark Sykes in the first half.

The win was yet another impressive scalp for The Robins who've now won three on the bounce in the league and look as though they're edging towards reaching their early season peak again.

They're unbeaten in their last five at home in all competitions, too, having won three and drawn two so they're firmly expect themselves to pick up three points here.

Nigel Pearson's side are still seven points shy of the play-off spots and reaching that level might be too big of an ask, but they're performing at a high level right now and if they keep picking up results who knows where they'll end up.

Wigan Athletic are currently 22nd in the Championship with seven wins, eight draws and fifteen losses from thirty games this season.

After a solid start, The Latics have endured dismal campaign that has seen two managers dismissed from their post. Most recently, Kolo Toure was relieved of his duties by the Wigan board after failing to win any of his nine games in charge.

Shaun Maloney has since taken charge of The Latics and in his two games in charge he's taken four points having drawn 0-0 with Blackburn Rovers before beating relegation rivals Huddersfield Town last time out.

That represents a very impressive return for Maloney and Wigan and they now find themselves on the brink of climbing out of the bottom three as they're level on points with Cardiff City in 21st.

The two sides drew 1-1 when they met in the league back in August and given Bristol City's good form at that time Wigan can be confident of a similar result here. A draw would represent a great point but it'll take a big effort to claim.
