        Preston vs. Wigan Prediction, Tips & Stats

        For our Preston vs. Wigan prediction, we're going for a 1-0 win for the away side.

        We have a Lancashire derby in the Championship this weekend as Preston North End welcome Wigan Athletic to Deepdale.

        Preston North End currently sit 14th in the Championship with eleven wins, nine draws and twelve losses from thirty-two games this season.

        PNE have been up and down this season form-wise and after threatening, at points, to make a run for the play-offs they look destined to cruise to an unremarkable mid-table finish.

        They enter this game amidst a poor run of form having failed to win any of their last five in the league, losing three and drawing two.

        Their most recent outing saw them held to a 0-0 draw away at Hull City, making that their second consecutive draw.

        Their home record is also incredible concerning with Preston failing to win any of their last four league games on home soil, drawing one and losing three.

        Ryan Lowe's side have been struggling immensely in front of goal having scored just two goals in their last five games, a stat that will be hugely concerning to Lowe and his staff.

        Preston aren't in danger of relegation but their season has effectively fizzled out into insignificance. They do need a win though, if not only to give their fans something to cheer, and getting three points in a home game against a local rival would go down nicely no doubt.

        Wigan Athletic are currently 24th in the Championship with seven wins, ten draws and fifteen losses from thirty-two games this season.

        The Latics have had a dismal season back in the Championship and are fighting for their lives to avoid relegation. They have, at least, improved notably under the guidance of Shaun Maloney following the dismissal of Leam Richardson and have cause for optimism.

        They enter this game unbeaten under Maloney having won one and drawn three of his four league games in charge.

        Most recently, Wigan claimed a very valuable point against promotion chasing Norwich City in a 0-0 draw.

        Maloney has had a fairly tough start in terms of fixture difficulty having faced two play-off contenders and he can be proud of his efforts having reigned unbeaten and, especially, having conceded just one goal in his four matches in charge.

        Wigan drew 0-0 with Preston when the two sides clashed on the opening day of the season and it's fair to expect a similar result here, but given PNE's form a Wigan win is by no means out of the question.
