Ex Luton player offers prediction for Hatters’ game with Wigan



Former Luton Town and Wigan Athletic man Emmerson Boyce has said that he hopes both clubs can avoid relegation this season.

The ex Barbados international spent a combined 15 years at the two clubs and was speaking ahead of their meeting on Saturday.

Having spent much of the season in the bottom three, Wigan have climbed up into 19th place following a run of three consecutive wins.

Luton, on the other hand, remain in the relegation places but are just five points adrift of safety.

Speaking in an interview with Luton News, Boyce said: “I’ve seen both of them quite a lot over the course of the season and I think Graeme Jones’ teams are how Wigan were under (Roberto) Martinez, frustrating one week and then have a magnificent performance the week after.

“Their form is quite similar, but it’s going to be a really, really interesting game.

“I’m going down myself at the weekend and I guess whoever can hold their nerves will walk away with the points.

“It’s an interesting time of the season, this is the home straight now and fingers crossed both of them can get out of trouble, difficult as it might seem.

“I’ll go 2-2, I want to see a few goals, and a last minute equaliser from somebody.

A win for Luton could see them jump ahead of Barnsley and off the bottom, while Wigan could move five points clear of the bottom three if results go their way.

The verdict

Wigan have had a remarkable turnaround in recent weeks and have won five of their last eight Championship matches.

The Latics also have home advantage in this crucial clash at the bottom, which makes them the marginal favourites.

However, Luton have been difficult to predict this season and have also seen their form pick up in recent weeks and should not be written off.
