Wigan Athletic take on West Ham United at The DW Stadium tomorrow, BBC pundit and ex-Liverpool defender Mark ‘Lawro` Lawrenson has done his usual weekly forecast for the beeb and low and behold he predicts a home victory for the Latics, let`s see what his reasons are:
Wigan v West Ham
Wigan have had a bit of an up and down start so far, which is only to be expected with a manager who’s new to the division and has changed the squad a bit.
They might have benefited from the international break after that last-minute loss to Everton and I think West Ham will have a bit more difficult season than last time.
Well a turn up for the books? Not really, when teams are evenly matched Lawro often picks the home side and plays the percentages, on this occasion I agree with his forecast and see the Latics getting their first home win of the season and I am going for a 2-0 win
