n.b. Preview written by Club Everton Forum member Dixie
Wigan are without a win in their past eight Premier League games, a run Everton will want to continue when they visit DW Stadium on Saturday.
Wigan have won only three matches this season and scored fewer goals than any other side (20), leaving them three points adrift at the bottom of the league.
They face a resurgent Everton who have been gathering momentum of late and are up to 10th place following their shock 1-0 win at home over leaders Manchester City, thanks to ex-Manchester United midfielder Darron Gibson’s deflected strike.
Undefeated in four, with two wins and two draws, Moyes’ men could not have hoped for a better opponent than rock-bottom Wigan to keep that run going.
Moyes is unlikely to hand starts to his new acquisitions Jelavic or Pienaar although the former is most likely after Stracqualursi’s lung-busting performance midweek which earned the Argentine a standing ovation from a rapturous Goodison crowd.
