Wigan v Hull

Wigan take on Hull City at the JJB Stadium for what really is a must win game for Wigan and a must win game for Hull City. Hull City have proven to be a tough outfit for teams to beat and they've been on the back end of some poor results of late, but they've got a little rhythm going, starting with a fine victory at Fulham, followed by a point against Newcastle.

Now Phil Brown's team must take on the unenviable task of facing Wigan Athletic at the JJB Stadium and with Wigan flying high after a magnificent 2-1 win over Sunderland, they'll be eager to win this to maintain their push for Europe.

At one stage, it was looking a bit bleak for the Latics after a few poor results themselves but they've put their disappointing results well and truly behind them as they aim to clinch 7th place.

Paul Scharner is a centurion on Sunday and I cam see him scoring against Hull. He's done ever so well and a goal would be just reward for the crazy Austrian.

The squad in general have done very well this season and Bruce has really transformed the Latics and I suspect that Hull might be in for a tough ride against the Latics. That said, I expect, too, that this will be a very hard game for the Latics.


Paul is a centurion come Sunday and I think he'll be eager to mark 100 with a goal. He is a threat on goal and I think we may see him sink one into the back of the net.


This guy is quality and I hope we make a play for him in the window. He gets goals and would be a fine addition to the squad. He'll be dangerous from free kicks, especially.



I just think with what's at stake, Wigan will nick this game 1-0 and push for Europe. I think Hull will stay up but I can't see them upsetting the odds at the JJB Stadium.


The relegation battle just gets more curious as it does interesting and I think personally, the three to go down are West Brom, Middlesbrough and Newcastle. I'd put a bet on if I were a brave man but I'm not that brave. However, I wish all teams well in whatever happens for the rest of the season. Relegation battles are not nice at all so I really do sympathise. Good Luck to all teams and see you next time for my own style of football prediction.

Do you agree with my prediction? Why not discuss this and all things Wigan Athletic on the message boards.
