Lawro Predicts - Bolton v Latics - FA Cup Weekend

Lawro Predicts - Bolton v Latics - FA Cup Weekend


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.

Prediction: 2-1


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.

Latics v Wolves - Big Game Preview

There is a little bit of pressure starting to mount down at the Latics, no win in seven games and sitting bottom of the pile, the sooner we can get a three points haul in the bag the better.

Gary Caldwell felt that his team were unlucky not to win the game at Preston on Friday never mind lose it, a wickedly deflected effort early on followed by some resolute defending kept the Latics at bay, but a failure to take two excellent chances was the downfall as we lost by the odd goal for the 7t
