Betting Tip: Gillingham @ 13/5 with bet365

After three consecutive away matches, Wigan return to the DW Stadium hoping to build on two wins and a draw achieved against Barnsley, Fleetwood and Scunthorpe.

Three home matches give the Latics an opportunity to announce their automatic credentials, although Thursday’s clash against Gillingham is fraught with danger in the sense that defeat would see the Kent side go well clear.

Justin Edinburgh’s team are nine points better off than their opponents ahead of this match, with the Gills one of the surprise packages in League One and they’re like an express train at the moment.

Wins at Millwall and Swindon have been followed by home victories against Colchester and Bradford. They’re getting the job done at a critical time in the season and should be backed at a nice juicy price.

Wigan recently lost at home to Blackpool and that means it’s three matches without a victory in front of their own supporters. Gary Caldwell’s side find it difficult to break down teams as fifteen goals in eleven games will testify.

True enough, just five have been conceded although it will be a tall order containing a side who average nearly two goals per game and can make a big statement in front of the Sky cameras.
