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 this Saturday`s FA Cup 4th round clash between local rivals Bolton Wanderers and Wigan Athletic at the Reebok Stadium will not only end in a home win for the Wanderers, but also have a very low attendance let`s see what his reasons are:
Bolton v Wigan
Monday's defeat by Chelsea was the worst I have seen Bolton play for a long, long time and they made an amazing amount of mistakes.
Owen Coyle's side are normally very difficult opponents even when they don't play well, but they seemed to capitulate against Chelsea, which is most unusual for them. Maybe they just had a bad night.
Wigan are in much deeper trouble, though, losing at home to Aston Villa on Tuesday after being taken apart by Arsenal at the Emirates last weekend.
This is a Lancashire derby and the two clubs are not far apart geographically but it will be very interesting to guess the size of the crowd - I cannot see a big turnout happening. Both managers probably think their priorities lie elsewhere, and the same might be said for both sets of fans.
Well first off Lawro seeing as the Latics have sold out all their ticket allocation the game has gripped the imagination of at least one set of supporters, so maybe you could be way off with your guess the crowd stab.
Secondly we can`t lose, not maybe, it`ll be close, a draw will do, none of those we aren`t going to lose, we aren`t going to draw, the Latics are taking this game, marching on into round five. A great away victory 2-0 Latics triumph.
