PREVIEW: Wigan v. West Ham

Real-Time FM begins for Wigan Athletic manager GS with a home game in the Premier League against West Ham United. Wigan Athletic sit 3rd with seven wins from their fourteen league matches so far this season, unbeaten at home and on a run of four without defeat. The Latics can boast a fully-fit squad and are likely to field a 4-4-2 formation, spearheaded by the sixteen-goal partnership of John Guidetti and Franco di Santo. In contrast, inconsistent West Ham sit 14th on fourteen points, with two wins and two defeats in their last four. The Hammers will miss the injured Yossi Benayoun alongside a handful of fringe players, and are expected to play five across the middle.

Odds: Wigan Evens, Draw 11-5, West Ham 11-5

West Ham have been poor of late and I can see this game fizzling out to a bore draw. – Richard Thompson, Sky Sports News.
