The Sky Bet Championship returns this weekend with plenty of games to look out for and potential talking points too.
The second tier has already caught the eye for the excitement it can produce and there certainly seems to be plenty of outsiders looking in at the competition and how competitive it can be.
With that in mind, then, David Prutton’s Aston Villa prediction reflects the openness of the league with him suggesting that they will only manage a 2-2 draw at home to Wigan this weekend.
Of course, Wigan were fantastic against Sheffield Wednesday and look here to stay already, with their willingness to get on the front foot at all possible opportunities.
And, in his Sky Sports prediction column, he is backing a 2-2 draw at Villa Park.
He thinks that both sides will go into the game on a high after opening weekend wins and that should set up a cracker, with the Latics getting a very good point.
Villa fans might be a little surprised by this but it is a result you can see happening.
Wigan are looking ready to have a go at anyone this season and Villa need to be wary.
The Villans look together after a tough-at-times summer, though, and I think they edge this one 2-1.
