          Bristol Rovers vs. Wigan Prediction, Tips & Stats

          Two sides looking to try and climb their way up the League One table meet this weekend as Bristol Rovers face Wigan Athletic.

          Bristol Rovers currently sit 13th in League One with two wins, three draws and two losses from their first seven games of the season.

          It's been a mixed bag for Joey Barton's men thus far who look like they could be troubled by old problems in that they cannot find a way to nail down any sort of consistency.

          They're coming into this game amidst an up and down run of form having won two, drawn one and lost two of their last five games in the league, the most recent of which was a 2-0 win way at Shrewsbury Town.

          Goals from John Marquis and Aaron Collins sealed the three points for Rovers and they'll be hoping that win is now a catalyst for a more sustained run of results.

          Rovers were beaten 1-3 by West Ham United U21 in the EFL Trophy in midweek and Chelsea loanee Harvey Vale delivered a very impressive performance.

          Barton has thus far not utilised him as much as many thought he would but if he can find a way to work him into the first XI then he could be a very valuable asset to the side.

          They now face a potentially tricky home game but one they should be looking to take all three points from.

          Wigan Athletic currently sit 20th in League One with four wins, one draw and two losses from seven games of the season.

          It's been a solid start to the season for a Wigan side whose league position belies their results on the pitch given they started the campaign with an eight point deduction, which if not implanted would mean they'd find themselves in 10th place currently.

          They're coming into this game amidst a mixed run of form having won two, drawn one and lost two of their last five matches.

          Their most recent game did see them claim a big three points in a 2-1 win at home against Cambridge United thanks to goals from Stephen Humphrys and Thelo Aasgaard, a win that was sorely needed given they entered the game off the back of two straight defeats.

          Wigan are clearly a side capable of mounting a play-off push but their preseason points deduction could come back to bite them.

          Three points will be tough to come by in this one but it's far from an unwindable fixture for The Latics.

          For our Bristol Rovers vs. Wigan prediction, we're going for a 2-2 draw.

          Bristol Rovers Team News

          The home side will be without Tristan Crama, George Friend and Jordan Rossiter for this one.

          Josh Grant will likely come in for friend in what should be the only change from the 2-0 win over Shrewsbury.

          Wigan Team News

          Wigan have no fresh injury worries for this game.

          Josh Magennis bagged a hat-trick in midweek and will be pushing Charlie Wyke for a start up top, but the latter is likely to retain his place for this one.
