Match Preview

Wigan’s last four matchdays have seen one side fail to score (W2, L2) and highlight a lack of entertainment in their Championship games, which have so far produced the joint-fourth fewest average total goals-per-game (2.27). Scoring obviously remains the ‘Latics’ biggest concern after failing to net in six league games, while their nine goals scored is the joint-second lowest in the division.
Unbeaten in three league outings at the DW Stadium (W2, D1), and boasting three consecutive clean sheets at home in the league, Wigan have scored first in two of five league matches here (P2, W2). However, they have also trailed at half-time in two matches (W1, L1).
Claiming 14 more league points more than Wigan over the last ten matches, Nottingham Forest are the league’s top form team in this particular period (W6, D4). Without a league loss since their Championship opener, five of Forest’s last six league matches have produced under 2.5 goals (total).
Impressively, Forest are yet to lose on the road in the league, despite conceding first in four of their six Championship awaydays (W1, D3).
Players to watchJoe Garner has three cautions this season and two career cautions against former team Forest. Meanwhile, Wigan teammate Joe Gelhardt scored for England U-18s in his last game.
Both Lewis Grabban (five goals) and Joe Lolley (three) each have a career goal against the hosts, with Grabban never losing in three matchups (W1, D2).
Stat attack: Across all competitions, four of these teams’ last five H2Hs have produced six or more cautions.
Wigan have managed three shutouts from their last seven competitive H2H home matches vs Forest (W2, D5).
These teams have both scored four league goals in the 61st-75th minute period so far this term.
Half of Forest’s six league road trips in 2019/20 have seen goals scored in both halves.
