Lawro Predicts - Fulham v Latics



Mark Lawrenson has done his weekly round of Premier League predictions for the BBC, this week the Latics travel to West London to face Fulham at Craven Cottage, let's take a look at how he sees this one going:

Fulham v Wigan

This one has the feel of a basement battle - Fulham are a few places above the relegation zone but not too many points clear of it.

I know they don't have the biggest squad and they have had a few injuries to contend with, but I was expecting them to do a lot better this season.

They are missing Clint Dempsey's goals and, although they won at West Brom in their last league game, their form has been stuttering of late. I still think they will be fine though.

Wigan, who have lost six of their last eight league games and are third from bottom, are in much bigger trouble. They are on a hopeless run and, if you were a Latics fan and looked at the league table, you would be worried. I do think they will stay up, even so.

A draw will be not be much use to Fulham but it would at least stop the rot a bit for Wigan.

Lawro's prediction: 1-1


I'm torn to be honest, if offered I'd take the draw no problems, but I do feel the Latics are capable of getting all three points though I'm not over confident, I'll go for a 1-2 away win on teh basis of when we really need to we get the result, and we really need to
