Tip Nottingham Forest - Wigan
Martin O'Neill played for Nottingham Forest in the team that won the European Cup. Now he's their manager and has to try and resurrect their season. They are seven points behind the promotion play-off places and can't allow that gap to get any wider. Only one of their last nine league and cup games have been won, though that was a 4-2 home win over league leaders Leeds United on New Year's Day. Home form has seen Forest win six, draw four and lose four of their league games with ten points from their last seven. O'Neill will have had all week to find out more about his players and this looks a good opportunity to get a win.
Wigan Athletic keep getting relegated to League One, winning promotion back and then getting relegated again. Last season saw them in the promotion part of the cycle but they go into this game two places and six points above the relegation zone. They can't blame their home form for being in trouble as they have seven wins but it's a different story on their travels. 14 away league games have produced just five points with 11 defeats. Their one away league win was at Stoke City way back in August. Only one of their last nine league games have been won with just two in the last 15. Back Nottingham Forest to get the win in this game.

Conclusion Nottingham Forest - Wigan
A home game against struggling Wigan is just what Nottingham Forest need at the moment. They are inconsistent and struggling to keep in touch with the top six with a seven point gap between them and the promotion play-offs. Wigan are again battling to avoid relegation and their away form is dreadful with just five points out of 42 on their travels. Go for Forest to get the home win here.
