Wigan v Southampton: Will there be a goalfest at the DW Stadium?


Bookmark and Share

Wigan came back from two down to steal a point from Stoke City in midweek but it wasn't enough to ease their relegation fears as Newcastle beat Villa and Reading drew at home with Chelsea.

Today Roberto Martinez's men host a Southampton side that have suffered only one defeat in their past seven league outings - and that was away at Manchester United.

Southampton and Wigan have only locked horns twice before, with both sides recording one win each. Wigan of course emerged victorious in their first league meeting earlier this season at St Mary's, leaving the south coast on the back of a 2-0 win. But can the Saints gain revenge this afternoon?

The Latics have lost the most games of any Premier League club at home this season (7) which will give the Saints encouragement to go and have a go. The visitors have two away wins to their name and are always good for a goal, as Manchester United found out on Wednesday.

This could go one of either two ways, be really cagey with only one goal or an end-to-end ding-dong goalfest. I'm going for the latter, but who will come out victorious?
