How do the experts see Wigan Athletic’s game against Fulham at Craven Cottage, let’s have a look at how the pundits and bookies see this game going at the weekend….

Mark Lawrenson has gone for a 2-0 home win at Craven Cottage on Saturday. The BBC pundit is currently lying 5th in the Cockney Latic Prediction League and that shows that he knows his stuff.

He said about his prediction; Fulham need to start winning games – that is now five league matches without a win for Mark Hughes’s team.

They desperately need to beat Wigan at home. The Cottagers will be pleased to have Andy Johnson back and he will need a few games to return to the form he showed before his injury – his pace is vital to the team.

With Wigan, you just do not know what you are going to get.
