Former Liverpool defender and current Match of the Day pundit Mark 'Lawro' Lawrenson has once again done his weekly round of predictions for the BBC, he is predicting that this Saturday's Premier League clash between Swansea City and Wigan Athletic at the Liberty Stadium will end in a home win for the Swans, let`s see what his reasons are:
Swansea v Wigan
Roberto Martinez might get a bit of stick coming back to Swansea, after leaving them to take charge of the Latics in 2009, but that is unfair. He started the revolution at the Liberty Stadium, and that should be recognised.
This should be a cracking game, though, because both teams play some good football. I saw Swansea against Manchester City on Monday, and they passed it around very well.
They had no cutting edge in that game, of course, but I think it might be a different story on their own patch, especially because this is their first home game back in the top flight and you would expect a fantastic atmosphere.
A few Swansea players were there under Martinez so they will have a point to prove, which will make a difference, and I also think Wigan remain suspect defensively.
A bit of back handed praise for the Latics there Larwo, I disagree with the predicition though, I can see the lads snatching this one, 2-1 Wigan win for me.
