  • Venue: DW Stadium (Wigan)

In the last ten seasons, Wigan often switched between Championship and League One. This season was turbulent for the team from Greater Manchester as they were punished with an eight-point deduction due to financial problems. After the punishment, it was clear that Wigan would be far from the best team in the division. Right now, Shaun Maloney's squad seems to be on course to finish the season as a mid-table team. Wigan lost two of the last three matches. In the previous game, they won 1-0 on the road against Shrewsbury. The home side had xG of 1.45, while guests had 0.41, so Wigan was fortunate to pick all three points. 

The current season is Cheltenham's third in a row in the League One. Still, it could be the last as they are in the relegation zone with one point fewer than safety. Cheltenham won the last three games in a row, but they have to continue in the same fashion to avoid relegation. Last weekend, Cheltenham won 3-2 at home against Port Vale. The home side was the better team most of the game, so their win is fully deserved. 

Wigan vs Cheltenham pick: Both teams to score - yes

Wigan scored at least one goal in each of the previous nine games. On the other hand, Cheltenham scored at least one goal in each of the last five matches. Both teams to score - yes should be the best betting option for this League One tie.

Wigan team news

Wigan won against Shrewsbury last weekend, and the head coach, Shaun Maloney, was very satisfied. He said, "In the first half, we did a lot of things right with the ball without being as intense with it as I would have liked. It flipped in the second half; you also saw we scored a goal and had to hang in and show a different mentality – not one we have shown recently. I thought the players were brilliant. The players who started and the ones who came on made some amazing blocks to stop shots on our goal. I probably get more pleasure watching the team put their body on the line for their club and teammates, and they did that today, so I loved every bit of that."
