Rob's Prediction: Wigan V West Ham

With results on Saturday not falling kindly for the Wigan faithful, it looks increasingly likely that Wigan may find themselves in the Championship playing Championship football next season. Its been an incredible ride, but all good things have to come to an end sometime, I guess.

Nevertheless, Wigan will be looking for some pride as they take on a West Ham side who are desperate to win, but results on Saturday suggest this is going to be a monumental task for them. Its still mathematically possible Blackpool or Birmingham could end up in the relegation mix, but it looks more likely they'll stay up and West Ham's six year tenure also is under increased threat.

With so much at stake, one could be forgiven to think that this shall be a very cagey encounter and I personally believe that one goal is going to win it. With so much riding on the return of Scott Parker, it wouldn't at all surprise me if he scored the winning goal to give the Hammers some hope on the final day of the season.

That said, Wigan have a fairly decent record against teams in the relegation mix and they know equally as much as West Ham what is at stake for their side as well and if Wigan win, it will give them cause for a bit of optimism on the final day and possibly the first back-to-back wins for Roberto Martinez and his Wigan Athletic side.

ROB'S PREDICTION
================

This game is so massive, any scoreline could be possible. Sadly, I don't see this game going the way of Wigan Athletic and I think that West Ham will get the points they so desperately need to keep their faint survival hopes alive and I believe Scott Parker will score the decisive goal.

Wigan Athletic 0-1 West Ham

ROB'S FINAL THOUGHT
===================

I do hope I am wrong with my prediction, but I just can't see this ending any other way, other than West Ham winning. I do think we'll give it a right good go but in the end, it may be too little too late, but I'll be rooting for the team all the way and hope for the home win we so desperately crave.

Rob? Come on, we need positivity, the fact that we are in exactly the same position that we were in last night and still need to win the two remaining games just shows that nothing has changed. We are a much better side than our league position suggests and we need the fans as well the players to be up for this

Good article apart from the confusing West Ham's "faint title hopes..." What title would that be then?? *scratches head*

Rob, you need to change your attitude. I've just come back from 7 hours of driving away to Sunderland. Want to know what people were saying after the game? 'We will have to beat Blackburn next weekend as Wigan are on good form, will win tomorrow comfortably, and be favourites to stay up next weekend'. Just a shame for us both that bloody Blackpool won today grr. Chin up!

I am going to be behind the team 100% tomorrow, whatever happens! I am really behind us and I hope we do well. I just have that feeling but that aside, I hope we do well and get the points we need. I will give my 100% for the cause tomorrow! UP THE 'TICS!
