  • Wigan have won only one of their last ten matches in the Premiership ;
  • But The Latics have taken seven points from their last three meetings against Bolton;
  • They kept just one clean sheet in their last 13 Premiership games;
  • Definitely they have major problems up front, having scored just two goals in last four games;
  • That’s why I expect someone from the new signings Marcelo Moreno and Victor Moses to start the game after making a couple of substitute appearance
  • The coach Roberto Martínez should deal without James McCarthy, who has a hamstring injury, and Steve Gohouri is also doubtful
  • Captain Mario Melchiot is back in contention to start after making a full recovery from a neck problem


  • Bolton have gone 325 minutes without a goal in the Premier League, though they did score when they drew 1-1 with Spurs in the FA Cup this weekend;
  • They have improved since Owen Coyle took over the managerial reins at the Reebok Stadium but their form away from home is still poor;
  • The Trotters have failed to score against Wigan in their last three encounters ;
  • Zat Knight is is doubtful with a calf problem, while Gary Cahill, Chris Basham, Ivan Klasnic, Grant McCann, Sean Davis and Joey O’Brien remain sidelined;
  • Tamir Cohen will return to the side after being rested against Tottenham, and on-loan midfielders Jack Wilshere and Vladimir Weiss are set for recalls.
  • Bolton have won only two away games in the league this season.

MY PREDICTION – UNDER 2.5 goals with possible result 1-0 or 1-1
