Derby County are playing at home against Wigan in a postponed game of round 33 of the Championship. The Rams are on a run of four games without a win and as expected dropped to the seventh place in the standings. Frank Lampard’s players lost the previous three games without even scoring a single goal, while over the weekend were humiliated with 4-0 as guests of Aston Villa. In these three fixtures, The Rams don’t play on the needed level and in 270 minutes didn’t create a single chance for a goal.
Wigan improved their form and are on a run of five games without a loss. Over the weekend, The Latics warmed up for Derby County with a goalless draw against Middlesbrough, which are also in the leading positions in the standings. At this moment, Wigan are three points ahead of the relegation zone mainly because of their poor form away from home. As guests, The Latics have just one win – 3-0 against Stoke City at the start of the season.
Despite the vast difference in the standings, we think that Wigan are the favourite to take the victory on Tuesday. Derby are in crisis, and it’s not ready to chase promotion in the Premier League this season, while The Latics will try to save their place in the Championship. In recent weeks, Wigan are showing some good performance in defence, and we expect that they will not be defeated on Pride Park Stadium.
