Lawro Predicts - Fulham v Latics

Lawro Predicts - Fulham 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 Saturday's clash between Fulham and Wigan Athletic at Craven Cottage will end in a draw, let's take a look at his reasons and see if he can be complimentary to us for once:

Fulham v Wigan

On the back of Wigan's last few results, it would probably make sense for me to just tip them to win this one and not say anything else.

The Latics have been absolutely amazing in the last couple of weeks.

They have timed their run to perfection and it is as good a sequence as results I have ever seen from a side near the bottom of the Premier League. Without being too down on them, my question to Roberto Martinez and his side would be 'where on earth has this been all season?'

Wigan's survival is in their own hands now, which is a big turnaround from how things were a few weeks ago when, with the fixtures they had to come, I thought they would be leaving it very late - how wrong I was!

But, bearing in mind how they have struggled to score goals all season, nobody could have foreseen their results and performances against Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal. They could and should have beaten Chelsea too.

Victor Moses particularly impressed me against the Gunners. We have always seen the potential he has and he is now finding an end product too - he looks a handful. Franco di Santo has improved as well and the 3-4-3 system seems to suit the Wigan defenders as much as their front players.

Let's not get too carried away with ourselves, though. They are at Fulham on Saturday, and the Cottagers are very strong at home.

Martin Jol's side have had a few days off since they drew with Chelsea on Easter Monday and maybe they will be lying in wait for the Latics, who are a big scalp now they are the form team in the Premier League.

Prediction: 1-1


I agree with the prediction, 1-1, that would do nicely
