Lawro Predicts - Birmingham v Latics

Lawro Predicts - Birmingham v Latics


Former Liverpool defender and current Match of the Day pundit Mark 'Lawro` Lawrenson has done his weekly round of predictions for the BBC and he is predicting that the game between Birmingham City and Wigan Athletic at the St. Andrews will end in a home win for Birmingham, let`s see what his reasons are:

Birmingham v Wigan

Yet again, Wigan looked very poor defensively in their defeat against Manchester City last weekend. Every time I've watched them on Match of the Day, they concede soft goals. They should be making it difficult for the opposition but they end up giving them gifts, which has to stop.

Birmingham did not have a great result last week either, losing to West Brom, but Alex McLeish has got a lot of resolve in his squad and I think they will bounce back here.

Prediction: 2-1


It is quite difficult to argue against Lawro on the face of it and a betting man may go for a home win, but when you look a little closer at the Latics results this season you`ll find that we`ve not lost, nay not even conceded a goal on our travels this season and appear to have all the shackles and pressures removed that playing at home bring.

With this in mind and the fact that Birmingham are a very poor side who find it hard to score goals I am going for a 1-0 Latics win

Birmingham are a poor side? What a load of rubbish! Birmingham don't score many goals? They've already got 7 goals this season compared to Wigan's 2. Sounds personal to me. Care to indulge?
