Recent respective form guides

Wigan Athletic's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While Latics have scored 4, a worringly large 7 have been leaked at the other end.

Man. City's away form is none too clever either, with two wins, two draws, and two defeats. While the Sky Blues have hit 6 goals, 11 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Wigan Ath. are stuck down in the relegation zone of Barclays Premier League with a return of just 8 points from their 14 games thus far. Man. City sit in a healthy 3rd in the league, and have picked up 29 points from their 14 games.
