Wigan will be aiming to continue their fantastic run of form when they travel to mid-table Fulham on Saturday afternoon, as punters pile into Roberto Martinez’s side at a tasty price of 7/2 with Paddy Power.
The Latics secured a superb 2-1 victory at Arsenal on Monday evening, a win they fully deserved after taking the game to their hosts and performing extremely well. They certainly didn’t look like a team who are battling to stay in the Premier League.
With reference to their position in the league after the win at the Emirates – which came just five days after the shock win over Manchester United – has moved Wigan five points clear of the relegation zone with four games remaining.
They still have some work to do of course, but nobody gave them any hope of points in their last two games and they have come away with six. They deserve massive credit and it is now all about finishing the job.

As for Fulham, they have had an up and down season, but have played some excellent football in the last month or so to see them sit 10th in the table. Clint Dempsey has led the line for them superbly too, scoring 22 goals this season.
Martin Jol’s men are unbeaten in their last three games too, so go into this home clash with some confidence. Their aim for the remainder of the season is now to retain their place in the top ten and take some momentum into what could be an exciting campaign next year.
Fulham will make sure they don’t underestimate Wigan of course, but their form at Craven Cottage does give them encouragement with only one defeat in their last eight home games.
Overall, it is Wigan that need the points more than Fulham, but with the home side determined to finish strongly, this should be a fascinating contest between two teams that like to play attractive attacking football.
This one gets underway at 3pm on Saturday afternoon.
