Updated Saturday, 4th April 2009
This week FootyMad's match preview focuses on the game between Everton and Wigan Athletic at 15:00 on Sunday, 5th April 2009 in the Premier League.
Everton prepare to entertain Wigan Athletic at Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon, and hold the advantage on previous meetings between the two. Of the 4 games played, Toffees have recorded 2 wins, and Wigan Ath. have come away with 1 victories.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Goodison Park was just last season, in August 2007, the Toffees carving out a narrow 2-1 victory in a Premier League match.

Recent respective form guides
Everton could not have a more impressive recent home form, having won each of the last six games. During these games, Toffees have smashed 14 goals past the opposition and conceded a paltry 3.
In complete contrast to Everton, Wigan Ath. are having a torrid time on their travels, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. Only 3 goals have been registered in this time, with 5 leaked at the wrong end.
Everton find themselves in a respectable 6th position, courtesy of the 48 points they have accumulated from 30 games. Wigan Ath.'s 41 points from 30 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 7th position.
