          Blackpool vs Wigan Prediction, Tips and Stats

          Wigan Athletic are staying on the road this weekend with a trip to Bloomfield Road where Blackpool are aiming to get back in the win column and finally find some consistency in League One this campaign.

          After relegation from the Championship, it's been another tough start to the season in the third tier for Blackpool. Their poor run of form continued last weekend with a 3-0 loss away to Lincoln City where Ollie Norburn was sent off.

          This did mark the end of a bizarre run for the Tangerines that saw them draw 0-0 three times in a row with goalless draws against Exeter City, Port Vale and Leyton Orient. Prior to this, the club recorded a fantastic 2-0 win over Burton Albion on the opening weekend and a 2-0 win over Derby County in the EFL Cup first round.

          This does also mean the best defensive record in the league for Blackpool with just three goals let in and four clean sheets so far. However, with so many goalless draws, only Cheltenham Town at the bottom of the table have scored fewer goals.

          As for Wigan, they lost without scoring and getting a red card last weekend too, as Charlie Hughes received his marching orders in a 2-0 defeat to Barnsley.

          Wigan did smash Bolton Wanderers 4-0 before this with three goals in the first half in a game that saw Charlie Wyke and Stephen Humphrys scored a brace each.

          Other results this season have seen Wigan exit the EFL Cup in the first round after a penalty shootout loss to Wrexham, while they've also drawn with Carlisle United but defeated Northampton Town and Derby County.

          Wigan team news

          Wigan will be without Charlie Hughes in this game after his red card in the home loss to Barnsley. Liam Morrison is expected in as a result, and we could see Josh Magennis return to the starting XI after he came on in the loss to Barnsley and was booked. Ben Amos is not expected in goal here either, but Jordan Jone and Scott Smith have returned from injuries. Charlie Wyke will start once more, as Lang, Humphrys and Callum McManaman likely come into the starting XI once more with the latter proving to be one of the best players in League One so far this season.

          Blackpool team news

          Blackpool's terrible run of form this season has been coupled with a few injuries and a recent sending off to Ollie Norburn - he now misses this game after his red card in the loss to Lincoln City. Dougall is also set to face a late fitness test ahead of this game. Owen Dale and Sonny Carey should start this game after missing the last outing, while Jordan Rhodes will also likely get some minutes too. Matty Pennginton could drop out of the starting XI after playing during the week. Richard O'Donnell will also come out of goal for Grimshaw after playing in the game away to Wolves in the League Cup.
