Wigan Athletic vs Wycombe Wanderers Prediction

Wycombe Wanderers are among the favorites to gain promotion and their start to the season shows their intent. Wigan Athletic have enough quality players within their ranks but have been plagued by recurring inconsistency.

Both sides will fancy their chances of getting a win here and are likely to each play on the front foot. However, we are predicting Wycombe Wanderers will narrowly edge this one with goals to be scored at both ends.
