Lawro Predicts - Wolves v Latics



Mark 'Lawro' Lawrenson has done his weekly round of Premier League predictions for the BBC, the Match of the Day pundit is forecasting that Sundays Premier League clash between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Wigan Athletic at the Molineux will end in a home win, let's take a look at his reasons:

The worst thing that happened to Wigan boss Roberto Martinez last week aside from being beaten by Fulham is that his chairman Dave Whelan came out and said 'I'm not going to sack him'.

I don't think it's a good idea to say that. Yes, say how you are backing your manager and how he needs help - but he also needs some results. Too many times we've heard chairmen say they are not going to sack anyone and ultimately they do exactly that.

I don't mean that negatively to Whelan or Martinez but if they suffer another two or three losses in their next few games then you start to think about what needs to be done to keep the club in the Premier League. It would be at that time of year when changes are often made.

Wolves need a win too, of course, because they have got some tough games coming up. The thing about Mick McCarthy's side is that they seem to lack a bit of composure in the final third.

They play well in games, are hard to come up against and are well coached and well drilled. They make chances but they seem a bit edgy in front of goal, which is a concern for McCarthy.

Prediction: 2-1


I think this is where we will have a bit of luck and put a halt to the dreadful run which we are on, I'm going for a 1-1 draw.
