Lawro Predicts - Latics v QPR

Lawro Predicts - Latics v QPR




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 Wigan Athletic and Queens Park Rangers at the DW Stadium will end in a home win for the Latics, let's see what his reasons are:

Wigan v QPR

We saw what Wigan are capable of in the 20-minute spell they had at Swansea last week where they hit the bar and post, and missed a penalty.

QPR had a great result at Everton, although I think they caught them at a good time. Rangers had a financial boost too with their takeover going through but, although their manager Neil Warnock now has money to spend, I think his problem will be getting players to join them.

Rangers are in talks with Joey Barton, who would be a great signing. But has he been tweeting about it because he wants to go there, or to let other clubs know what is going on? I'm not sure.

As for Saturday, I think it will be close. Both these teams will be in the bottom third of the table come May, but I think Wigan will edge it on the day.

Prediction: 2-1


Frightening having Lawro plump for us! I think we will just edge it also, 1-0 Latics win for me

I prefer the underdog tag myself - I think it will be a tight, nervy 1-0 or 2-1 victory

Tight wont be the word! I also predict at least one new signing in the team, maybe two if its can be done in time
