Wigan v West Ham – Match Preview

West Ham boss Sam Allardyce

Wigan will desperately be looking to halt their dip in form when they welcome West Ham to the DW Stadium this Saturday.

Roberto Martinez has seen his side pick up just one Premier League victory this season, coming against Southampton back in August.

Six games have followed without a win, which now sees Wigan just a single point above the drop zone.

Meanwhile West Ham continue to impress, comfortably beating Southampton 4-1 last time out. They have now only lost one in their last six Premier League games.

Wigan will once again be without winger Albert Crusat (knee) and defender Antolin Alcaraz (groin), while Japanese international Ryo Miyaichi is doubtful with a groin injury.

Sam Allardyce will continue to be without long term absentees Ricardo Vaz Te and Jack Collison but is set to welcome defender Joey O’Brian back into the squad, following an injury he picked up in the win at QPR earlier in the month.

Prediction: Wigan 1-2 West Ham
