Wigan Athletic still has plenty to play for this EPL season and they are coming up against a Norwich side that has been focusing more and more on their defensive duties. In recent Premier League seasons Wigan has put on last ditch efforts to pull out of the relegation zone, so it leads one to believe that this year will be the same. I don’t know what it is about this team, or Roberto Martinez, but they certainly know how to get the results they need when they are put under the intense pressure of a fight to stay up.
Norwich aren’t exactly out of the battle, but where they stand now they are far enough away that a few wins will help them pull clear. They are also a team that has shown they can get wins, despite their recent form.
My prediction is a Wigan win to help them continue their push upward in the EPL table. I have a hard time seeing Norwich getting win, although they could force a draw. This should be a good match for any neutrals to watch in terms of the relegation places.
Wigan (D, L, W, L, W) 2 – 1 Norwich City (D, W, L, D, D)
