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 Premier League clash between Aston Villa and Wigan Athletic at Villa Park will end in a home win for Villa, no surprise there then, let`s see what his predictable reasons are:
Aston Villa v Wigan
Things are definitely looking up for Villa - six weeks ago people were predicting relegation for them, but they are starting to play well and manager Gerard Houllier is getting better too.
Wigan can't seem to string two results together. Their performances aren't ever that bad, but especially in away games they have 15-20 minute spells where they just implode.
I reckon Villa have enough matchwinners to edge it, and I'm afraid I think Wigan will go down.
Well, well, well, surprise, surprise, another game and another predicted defeat for the Latics, every week Lawro predicts our downfall and base`s his decision on the fact that we are inconsistent, strange really considering that we have only lost 2 games more than his beloved Liverpool, the Latics problem is that they are too consistent, consistently drawing games.
With either a bit more luck, a bit better finishing or a bit better refereeing we could have turned at least 4 of the FOURTEEN games drawn this season into wins, that would have us in mid-table and very safe.
Lawro talks about us being poor away, well we have won more points away from the DW than his beloved Liverpool have away from Anfield, we have conceded fewer goals away from home than we have at the DW and we have only scored 3 goals less on our travels than we have at home.
As for Saturday, we need the result, Villa are safe, we will be up for it, hopefully Villa will have their minds elsewhere, 1-2 Latics win.
