Wigan Athletic vs. Millwall Match Preview

February 21, 2020

Written by:

 

This weekend sees the Lions on the road once again as Gary Rowett's side make the trip to Greater Manchester to face Wigan Athletic at the DW Stadium.

 

The Latics are having a tough time of it this season and currently find themselves in the relegation zone in 22nd place.  Their current run sees only two wins in their last five league games and with a three point gap between them and fourth from bottom Stoke City, the home side will be desperate for the win.  Millwall's run of form recently has been similar to Paul Cook's side, but the positives that the South London side can take is that their opposition was of a tougher standard and the Lions are still within a shout of the Championship play-off places.  A win for Millwall and results going their way could see them go within a point of the top six and back in real contention for promotion.

 

Millwall are the dominant side in the league head-to-heads, with 12 league wins compared to Wigan's six and the points shared on eleven occasions.

 

 

 

Haven't we met before?...

 

Wigan Athletic 0-1 Millwall, Tuesday 8th April 2014 – It was Ian Holloway's Millwall who leapfrogged over Barnsley in the bottom three after victory in this midweek fixture.  It was a rare goal in the 22nd minute from Ipswich Town loanee, Carlos Edwards that secured the win for the Lions and although the Lactics had a number of chances to equalise, Millwall held out to gain a morale boosting win on the road.

 

 

TEAM NEWS

 

Antonee Robinson and Kieran Dowell will likely be out for this one as the two are not fully match fit.  Full-back Danny Fox remains out with a groin injury.

 

Millwall will have a strong side to pick from, but Ben Thompson remains one of those sidelined for this one, as does Shaun Williams who is in the treatment room.  Ryan Leonard will be pushing for a starting place after recovering from his long term injury and making recent appearances from the bench and Mason Bennett will look to feature also after a recent injury in training.

 

 

 

THE ONE TO WATCH -

MAHLON ROMEO

 

There has been talks in recent weeks of the form of Mahlon Romeo and how some inconsistency may have crept into his game, but the young full-back has continued to be an ever present for Gary Rowett and an explosive player for Millwall when in attack.  There are questions whether Romeo has the defensive mind to take the step to the next level, but with a new system of a back five allowing him the freedom to be more threatening, the wide man will be a real threat if on his game.

 

 



PREDICTION: WIGAN ATH. 0-2 MILLWALL

 

Wigan are struggling and although they need the win badly, the recent away win at Preston North End for the Lions has Millwall back on track.  A comfortable win for the Lions is the prediction from me.

 

Come on you Lions.
