Fulham vs Wigan – Scoring goals proving a problem for both teams

| 29.10.2010

Goals have not been a regular feature in previous meetings between Fulham and Wigan and there is little to suggest that this is set to change this season at Craven Cottage.

Match Odds

Fulham have still only won one game this season and in total have taken the three points in just three of their last 20 Premier League outings.

Mark Hughes has attempted to encourage his own brand of attacking football this season, but has struggled to get his best team onto the pitch, particularly in attack.

Although Bobby Zamora is still out, Diomansy Kamara recently returned to action and Andy Johnson is in line to play his first game since January at home to Wigan.

Both will need games to sharpen their match fitness and help Fulham beat Wigan at odds of 5/6.

Five of the last seven meetings between the pair have ended in draws, while Wigan are currently enjoying a run that has seen them lose once in their last seven games.

Wigan are 10/3 to beat Fulham and win at Craven Cottage for the first time in four attempts.

Correct Scoreline

Only 14 goals have been scored in the last ten Premier League meetings between Fulham and Wigan, with the visitors managing just seven goals in their nine league fixtures so far during the present campaign.

Fulham’s lack of fit strikers has also contributed to their struggles for goals and they have found the target just ten times so far.

It is 8/11 that the game has under 2.5 goals, but better value may be available in attempting to predict the correct score.

Fulham have kept just two clean sheets in their last 13 Premier League outings and Wigan are 8/1 to take advantage of this defensive frailty and win 1-0.

Hughes’ team are 6/1 to beat Wigan 1-0, while the goalless draw which is also more than a likely outcome is 8/1.

There has been under 2.5 goals in ten of the last 11 meetings between the pair. See the whole Fulham vs Wigan match betting odds market.
