Luton Town v Wigan Athletic: Emirates FA Cup Third Round
Wigan host Huddersfield on Saturday.

The hosts are coming off a goalless draw at Blackburn Rovers on Monday. Huddersfield, meanwhile, also shared the spoils against Blackpool, albeit in a more exciting four-goal thriller.

Matthew Pearson gave the visitors the lead in the 36th-minute before Blackpool were reduced to ten men on the stroke of half-time. Despite their numerical deficit, Blackpool scored twice in the final 15 minutes to snatch a point.

The draw left the West Yorkshire outfit in 22nd spot, having garnered 28 points from 29 games. Wigan are languishing at the foot of the standings with 26 points to show for their efforts after 29 games and are three points away from safety.

Wigan Athletic vs Huddersfield Town Prediction

Both sides are running out of time to avoid the drop and need to start winning games to climb out of the relegation zone. Wigan have struggled in the Championship following their promotion last term, with just one win in their last 16 games.

The high stakes involved in the game could see both teams play cautiously to avoid losing to a direct relegation rival. So, the spoils could be shared in a low-scoring draw.
