AFC Fylde vs Wigan predictions and betting tips for this week’s FA Cup second round fixture on Friday 1st December. Will we see an upset on the Fylde coast?
The National League side are building quite a reputation in the lower leagues – they have a fantastic new stadium and a millionaire owner. Their quest to get into the Football League by 2022 is well on track and they have settled into life in the National League well. They’ve even got the BBC on board with a feature about their climb up the leagues. Wigan will be wary of this and will be doing everything to avoid an FA Cup upset at the 6,000 seater Mill Farm stadium. Read our FA Cup predictions for the match below.
It is slightly unfortunate for AFC Fylde that Friday night’s hosts are in such good form, but we’re not sure that will stop the hosts from getting something from this match. Fylde have been on a fantastic run of form themselves with six wins in their last seven matches – including a 4-2 FA Cup win in the last round against Kidderminster. They’ve won their last four at home and kept a clean sheet in four of their last five. The first of our AFC Fylde vs Wigan predictions is for Fylde to win or draw. The odds for this are 2/1 with Ladbrokes where new accounts get a £20 free bet using this link.
One of the biggest AFC Fylde’s biggest weapons is their goal machine upfront Danny Rowe. He’s the National League top goalscorer so far this season and scored 48 goals in 42 league matches last season. Rowe also netted twice in the last round against Kidderminster so he’s an obvious choice for an anytime goalscorer tip. The likes of Wigan’s Will Grigg and Nick Powell are favourites but we’re snapping up the 2/1 with Coral for Rowe to score anytime as our second AFC Fylde vs Wigan prediction.
Both of these teams are capable of scoring goals and I’m predicting this to be a high scoring FA Cup match. Wigan have scored three goals in their last two matches and both teams have scored in their last five games, with five of the last six seeing over 2.5 goals. Fylde have scored eight in their last three home matches. The last of our AFC Fylde vs Wigan predictions is over 2.5 goals and the best odds are 4/6 with Bet Bright.

It looks like the home side will have a clean bill of health for this FA Cup tie. Wigan are without Christin Walton, Craig Morgan and Shaun McDonald for the clash and the first ever meeting between these two sides.
