Crewe Alexandra vs Wigan England – League One Date: Sunday, 26 December 2021 Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET Venue: Gresty Road.
Undefeated in the league since October Wigan is having a walk in the park currently in League One pushing towards promotion to the Championship.
Despite managing to get some points under their belts recently, Crewe Alexandra would need to deliver such performances on a consistent basis if they are to rescue themselves from relegation at the end of the season.
Gresty Road is set to witness these clubs fighting it out for 3 points in League One this Sunday afternoon.
The Latics beat 6th place Oxford United by a 2-3 score line away from home in their previous matchday. Prior to the win, the club had registered a couple of draws and wins.
Thus with 11 points from their preceding 5 league fixtures, the club now occupies 2nd position in the league. Despite being 2 points behind Rotherham, Wigan have a game in hand over the club.
The Railwaymen lost their most recent match by a 0-2 score line at home against Sheffield Wednesday. This has taken their loss tally in the last 5 league fixtures to 3. Winning the other 2 games from that period, the club is rock bottom of the league, 7 points away from safety.
Crewe Alexandra vs Wigan Head-to-head
Either team has 2 wins in their previous 5 duels.
The away sides have failed to score in the last 3 h2h fixtures.
2 exact goals were scored in 3 of their last 4 meetings.
The visitors have 1 win in their last 6 fixtures at this venue.
Crewe Alexandra vs Wigan Prediction
The Tics are undefeated in their last 12 fixtures across all competitions, from which they have claimed 9 victories. They should deliver with the three points with ease as they are facing a club that has lost 8 of their last 11 league matches.
Will Keane joined the Latics in October 2020 after he was released by Ipswich. The Stockport born midfielder has scored 10 league goals this season, which makes him the 4th highest goal scorer in the league.
Due to his impressive performance, he was called up by the Republic of Ireland at the age of 28 this September and is my pick to score anytime in this fixture.
