First Goalscorer Daryl Dike 3/1 with Bet UK

The managerial bounce of Carlos Corberan’s autumnal appointment is starting to wear off at West Brom, with the Baggies winning just one of their last five games, which has left them hanging down in 11th and now seven points off the play-off spots — though they do have a game in hand on those around them.

At one point, Corberan had overseen nine wins from 10 games between November and January, which fired the Black Country club up to the periphery of the play-off positions and quelled early concerns after they started the season in dismal fashion under Steve Bruce. They will want to find that kind of form once again.

Wigan represent a ‘winnable’ game on paper, with Shaun Maloney’s men currently lurking inside the relegation zone, having won just one of their last 13 games. Despite their patchy form, though, they have only lost once in their last six outings, but four of those have been draws. They will need to start winning games if they are to stave off the threat of relegation.

West Brom vs Wigan match stats

Corberan will be turning to John Swift for final third inspiration on Tuesday night, with the midfield architect creating 74 chances for his team-mates this season, the second-highest figure of any Championship player, behind only fleet-footed Morocco international Ilias Chair of Queens Park Rangers (86).

As for who might score the goals, United States international Daryl Dike has started to find a bit of form in 2023. In fact, only Tom Bradshaw, Chuba Akpom (both nine) and Viktor Gyokeres (four) have scored more goals in the Championship this year than Dike (four), who recently notched a brace against Middlesbrough.
