Lawro Predicts - Stoke v Latics




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 Sunday`s Premier League clash between Stoke City and Wigan Athletic at the Britannia Stadium will end in a draw, let`s see what his predictable reasons are:

Stoke v Wigan

I'm not quite sure about Wigan - as always!

They had a really good win last week coming from two goals down to beat West Ham - but having watched that game I can say they gave up more chances than they created, which must be worry going to the Britannia Stadium.

Stoke, despite being beaten comfortably by Man City in their last two games, are still a real handful and they can be really difficult to beat - especially at home.

I'm not sure Wigan have got the players to deal with them. Yes they've had a good run, but when you concede as many chances as they do, you'll always be in trouble.

On the face of it, this looks a favourable fixture for Wigan - compared to their rivals anyway. But you've still got to deal with Stoke.

The Potters have this tremendous work ethic, they'll have recovered from the emotional and physical strain of the FA Cup final, and Tony Pulis will certainly want to finish the season on a high.

Saying all that, I'll say Wigan will scrape a point - which might just be enough to save them from the drop.

Prediction: 1-1


A draw would be too nervy for my liking, I am going for a win for the Latics, no idea on the score.

who ever wrote that is a moron see what they say about al habsi!
legolad
He believes West Ham had the majority of chances because he watched match of the day!!! I saw the Telegraph as well, what a plonker that writer is
worbo
says al habsi is a bad keeper cause he made 3 mistakes. Id say the one against city was the only major mistake and the other 2 were ones he should have got but not really mistakes! how can they mention that without mentioning his many many match winning/drawing :) saves? imbeciles
legolad
This guy is absoulutely rubbish! Looking at the statistics from here http://soccernet.espn.go.com/gamecast?id=292859&league=ENG.1&cc=5739 it says Wigan: Shots 29 ( 12 on goal ) and West Ham: Shots 19 ( 9 on goal ) and ball possesion Wigan 60 West Ham 40.. the numbers don't lie!
