Wigan welcome West Bromwich Albion to the DW Stadium as both sides go looking for a much-needed Premier League three points. Bookmakers online are offering free bets to new customers as well as money back specials ahead of the game. Roberto Di Matteo’s side have made an interesting start to life in the Premier League after finishing runners-up to Newcastle United in the Championship last season. The former Chelsea midfielder has got his side playing good, attractive football at the Hawthorns, but as of late they have not been getting the required results. The Baggies went down 2-1 at Bloomfield Road against Blackpool the other week after having two men sent off, and on Wednesday they managed a 2-2 draw at West Ham. Wigan meanwhile managed to gain a valuable point at home to Liverpool. A goal from Spain World Cup winner Fernando Torres looked to have set Roy Hodgson’s men on their way, but Hugo Rodallega got the Latics back into the encounter with a second-half strike. Wigan, who have been in the relegation zone for most of the season, know that these are the type of fixtures they’ll need to win to ensure Premier League survival. But Albion are dangerous on the road, as demonstrated by their superb 3-2 win away at the Emirates against Arsenal last month. It’s West Brom’s Peter Odemwingie who bookmakers think will get on the scoresheet first in this one and he is favourite with most firms.
