Wigan have little option but to come out all guns blazing

Wigan have little option but to come out all guns blazing

Wigan v Tottenham

Wigan's trademark end-of-season charge to survival has hit the buffers somewhat following two successive away defeats since their FA Cup semi-final triumph over Millwall - so they'll be looking forward to getting back on home soil for the first time in April this weekend.

The Latics, who still have a game in hand on their relegation rivals, can be considered one of the most dangerous attacking teams in the bottom half so Spurs will find it tough to keep a clean sheet.

But Tottenham, who are battling hard for a top four spot, have netted in each of their last nine away games in all competitions which is why we're expecting goals at both ends at the DW Stadium.

Barnsley v Hull

Second-bottom Barnsley have two games to save themselves from relegation to League One and must simply come out all guns blazing against Hull, who are hoping to seal promotion in the other direction.

Obviously the Tigers might already be up by the time this match kicks off if third-placed Watford lose to Leicester on Friday night but should that be the case then they'll be able to play without pressure in a celebratory mood.

Either way, Hull have the quality to do damage to the struggling hosts, who were thumped 6-0 by Charlton recently, but they have conceded against Ipswich and Wolves in their last two away games.

Millwall v Nottingham Forest

The alarm bells are ringing at the New Den as Millwall lie just four points above the drop zone following back-to-back defeats against fellow strugglers Huddersfield and Blackburn - so we can expect them to be hungry for goals and victory on Saturday.

However, Nottingham Forest will also be in an attacking mood as they know only maximum points from their remaining two games is likely to give them a realistic chance of sneaking into the play-off places.

I acknowledge Forest's last three games wouldn't have delivered in this bet but they have no option but to option to throw caution to the wind on Saturday and this could also leave them exposed at the back.
