Kick Off: 3PM Saturday 12th January 2013.
Martin Jol has his hands full with a long injury list and missing key players in Duff and Riise. With a total of eight players out injured Fulhams squad is being tested to the limit.
Snatching an away win at West Bromwich has helped their cause no end because prior to that victory they were nosediving with the terrible away defeat to Liverpool making them look like a team that were just not trying.
Wigan also have five players out and in their last match they were crushed by a rampant Man United and they have only an away win at an understrength Aston Villa for 3 points in their last four games.
With the amount of injuries that both teams are taking into this game it means they will both be understrength but there is no reason not to go with favouring a draw here between two teams struggling for any consistency.
The draw is priced evenly across most bookies at 13/5.
