            Wigan vs. Reading Prediction, Tips & Stats

            Two sides sharing similar off-field problems meet in League One this weekend as Wigan Athletic face Reading.

            Wigan Athletic currently sit 18th in League One with ten wins, six draws and ten losses from twenty-six games this season.

            Wigan's season began in tumultuous fashion with an eight-point deduction which is largely the reason for their lowly league position, but even outside of that they've still been short of the level they would have expected of themselves considering even without the eight-point deduction they'd still be thirteen points shy of the playoff places.

            They're entering this game wholly out of form having won only two of their last ten games in the league, the most recent of which was a 1-1 draw away at Northampton Town thanks to Josh Magennis' second-half strike.

            The draw with Northampton was by no means a bad result away from home given the form they entered the game in, but it only prolongs their run of little wins so they're coming into this one very much needing three points.

            Regardless of their poor form on the whole they've still been decent on their own patch having won three of their last five league games on home soil.

            Wigan have been edging nervously closer to the relegation zone over the course of the past few weeks so failure do win this game, against a side currently occupying one of the bottom four positions, would do little to ease those growing concerns.

            Reading currently sit 21st in League One with seven wins, six draws and twelve losses from twenty-five games this season.

            The Royals are having another disaster of a campaign as they find themselves well on course for a second successive relegation.

            Like Wigan, Reading are embroiled in financial troubles brought on by a flippant owner who refuses to invest in the club.

            It's a matter that Reading fans (understandably) aren't taking too kindly to, either, as shown by the organised protest that saw 1,000 invade the pitch during their game against Port Vale last weekend, a course of action that led to the match being abandoned.

            The EFL have since issued owner Dai Yongge with an ultimatum, demanding he either invests the money the club needs or otherwise put it up for sale with immediate effect.

            For now, Reading's performance on the pitch has been encouraging despite the catastrophe off the pitch as they come into this game unbeaten in their last six games in the league having won two of their last four.

            Prior to the suspended game against Port Vale, Reading beat Exeter City 3-2 so they're technically coming off a win.

            They need to do everything in their power to ignore what's going on behind the scenes and pool their efforts together on the pitch as they proved they've got enough quality to collect wins in this league if they perform to their potential.

            This is a tough game for the Royals but it's by no means unwinnable.

            For our Wigan vs. Reading prediction, we're going for a 1-1 draw.

            Wigan Team News

            The Tics made a few changes to their starting XI for the trip to Doncaster in the week with Liam Morrison, Stephen Humphrys and Jordan Jones all on the bench for that game.

            Those three should come back into the starting XI for this one, but Martial Godo's involvement is currently up in the air given he was absent for the trip to Yorkshire in the week.

            Reading Team News

            The Royals are likely to stick with the same side that started the game against Port Vale last time out given they weren't given a crack at the whip.

            Teenager Tyler Bindon should play at the heart of the defence, as he looks to continue his impressive season.
