York vs Wigan Predictions


This could prove a tricky night´s work for Wigan against their non-league hosts. 

While I´m backing an away win, I also expect York to score, so BTTS is my second selection for Friday´s FA Cup contest. 

  • York have seen BTTS in 5 of their last 7 home matches
  • Wigan have won 8 of their last 11 matches (including penalty shootouts)
  • Wigan have won 2 of their last 4 away matches (FA Cup)
  • Wigan have seen BTTS in 3 of their last 5 matches

Head to Head


Friday´s FA Cup contest is the first match between York and Wigan since 1999. The Latics scored a 3-1 on their last visit to York on League One duty nearly a quarter of a century ago.

Wigan are unbeaten in all four previous matches between these sides since 1997, while three of those games saw BTTS. 

York Form


National League side York have enjoyed a decent run of form over the past month. Neal Ardely´s men have picked up three wins while losing just one of seven fixtures across all competitions. 

Despite recent improvements, York find themselves 19th in the National League, and just one point outside the drop zone. The Minstermen have proven tough to beat in recent home matches, though, with just one of their last seven ending in defeat. 

York Team News


Ardley could be deprived of the services of two first-team regulars for Friday´s FA Cup clash. Dipo Akinyemi missed last weekend´s draw at Maidenhead with a shoulder injury and could again miss out. 

Elsewhere, Alex Woodyard is unlikely to feature unless an appeal for last week´s red card against Maidenhead proves successful. 

Wigan Form


Sean Maloney´s Wigan side make the journey to York in good form, with only one defeat in their last 11 matches. Unbeaten in six, the Latics enjoyed a comfortable 3-0 win against Fleetwood Town this past weekend. 

Wigan secured their place in the second round of the FA Cup with a 2-0 win at Exeter City earlier this month. 

Wigan Team News


Maloney is unable to call on fellow Scot Liam Morrison, who is unavailable with a thigh injury sustained on U21 duty. In addition to Morrison´s absence, Wigan must cope without the services of long-term absentees Jason Kerr (metatarsal) and Thelo Aasgaard (ankle).

Verdict

Wigan´s superior quality and experience should prove the difference in a keenly contested cup tie at LNER Community Stadium.

I´m backing the Latics to win, while I also expect BTTS in Friday´s FA Cup clash in North Yorkshire.
