Wigan face Hull City at the Kingston Communications Stadium this weekend. For Hull, they need a win to really get their season going but thus far, are struggling to make the same type of impact as they did last season.
Wigan produced a euphoric performance to beat Chelsea 3-1 at the DW Stadium, which was thoroughly deserved. However, Martinez and team alike shall not underestimate the threat of a wounded Tigers side.
Martinez, thus far, has no real injury worries to contend with and should be able to name a strong side to counter Phil Brown's Hull City team. Whilst Hull do have good players, unfortunately their defence far outweighs their attack in fragility.
Since the sale of Michael Turner, Hull have leaked goals left, right and centre. That said, I have a great respect for Hull City and really do hope they beat the drop, but a tough ask it could turn out to be.
WIGAN: PLAYER TO WATCH
Jason Scotland - I just have a feeling he will net a goal against the Tigers. He did well against Chelsea and deserves a goal.
HULL: PLAYER TO WATCH
Kevin Kilbane - Will be eager to make an impression against his former club. That said, could he provide invaluable information on Wigan's weaknesses that could aid in their exploitation of the away side? I think not as Wigan have changed dramatically since his departure.
Hull, whilst decent in attack, have a defence that would be of concern. Wigan's strength and power should be enough to secure another away win for the Latics but I do think it'll be a tough ride for the away side.
Hull 1 Wigan 2
Geovanni for Hull
Scotland and Rodallega for Wigan
ROB'S FINAL THOUGHT
Will Wigan make it into Europe and will Hull City be relegated? I think that Wigan have as much chance as anything to make it into Europe. Hull, however, concern me and I think they'll be relegated this year. Its a shame after such a promising start last season. They've just fallen short of the mark of late but I think if they go down, it won't be without a fight.
