Wigan Athletic squad news and predict XI to face Oxford United
Wigan Athletic will face Oxford United in League One this weekend after the international break.
Wigan have won their previous two games and three of the league’s previous five, so the Tics are hoping the international break hasn’t ruined their momentum.
They currently sit second in the league, behind Plymouth Argyle. An inconsistent form was present around Leam Richardson’s squad that Plymouth has yet to really show.
Gwion Edwards is expected to be out with a thigh problem, thankfully this is the only new report on the injury front.
Jordan Jones and Jack Whatmough are both suspended, with Max Power and Charlie Wyke both one warning of a suspension.
To be able to
Wigan will be hoping to close the gap on Plymouth’s lead at the top and with one game less, Wigan will consider himself in the driver’s seat.
Their opposition, Oxford, enter this one undefeated in their last four games and their recent form has rewarded them with a spot just in the top six. Karl Robinson’s side will be hoping to keep Sunderland out of the play-offs this weekend and the only way to guarantee that is to collect three points this weekend.
Expect this game to be a good deal from start to finish with both teams enjoying recent good form. This means that both sides should be happy and confident enough to play a smooth game, which should give both groups of supporters good oversight.
Score prediction: Wigan Athletic 2-1 Oxford United
