Lawro Predicts - Latics v Bolton

Lawro Predicts - Latics v Bolton


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 Saturday`s local derby between Wigan Athletic and Bolton Wanderers at the DW Stadium will end in a home win for the Latics, let`s see what his reasons are:

Wigan v Bolton

Not so long ago, this would have been your stereotypical 'earthy' Lancashire derby but both of these teams try to play a lot more football these days.

Under Owen Coyle, Bolton's change in approach has been more noticeable but he has done it slowly but surely, and very effectively.

This should be a close game. Wigan should have seen things out comfortably against Newcastle after leading 2-0 but had to settle for a point and you never quite know what to expect from them.

Prediction: 2-1


Not often I find myself agreeing with the Preston born former Republic of Ireland international but this week I do, home win for the Latics, I`m going for 2-0 though

I'm not so sure, but then I'm very wary of setting myself up for diasappointment. I think the reasonable expectation is somewhere between a win and a draw.

Report - Latics 0 Forest 0 - What A Shocker

Thirteen games to save our Championship status, first up a home game against Nottingham Forest who are on a shocking run of form, conceded 10 goals in their last three matches, three of their first choice defenders missing through injury, they had lost 11 of their 16 away games this season with a -16 goal difference on the road and sat just six points above us in the table, surely a game that we would set out to win.

Checking the team selection I felt slightly optimistic but slightly conf
