Wigan vs Accrington England – League One Date: Saturday, 1 January 2022 Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET Venue: DW Stadium
In game week 26 of League One, Wigan plays against Accrington at DW Stadium on Saturday.
The two teams will go into this tie in a completely equal mood. We can hardly imagine a scenario in which Accrington could create an upset here against in-form and highly motivated Wigan side. But their win against the table toppers in the last round would be a topic to be concerned for Wigan coach Richardson.

Wigan vs Accrington Prediction
The Latics are unbeaten in the last 7 league outings. They have won five out of these seven. They have only shipped 20 goals in 21 league games so far in the season. They are also having an unbeaten run for 3 games at home.
While the visitors have been impressive lately, winning four of their last five league games. Their current form allowed them to gain a position in the top half.
They have managed to find the oppositions net for at least once in seven of last 10 league outings. Their most recent game against the topflight team Rotherham ended up as a win for them as they evade a stalemate after McConville scored at 75.
Taking all these into account, our assessment is that The Reds should have enough to put one past against this Wigan lineup, although just one goal might not quite prevent defeat.
The history of this match up suggests that we should be in for a high goal scoring clash here. Therefore, we are expecting a 3-1 winning score for the hosts after 90 minutes.
