Wigan Athletic vs Derby County Prediction

Wigan has been showing excellent improvements while staying at the ultimate bottom of the table. They have drawn three of the last five league clashes.

Their previous encounter was with Huddersfield and it ended in a 1-1 draw at home. Since they are hosting again, the host will have more strategies to work.

Even at home, the Latics have been showing better composure at home. Evidently, the host has marked two draws in their recent two home matches.

The Latics will be looking to build on their two winless game run at home. Hence, we can expect Wigan to perform well at home.

Meanwhile, things are going south for Derby when they travel to their opponents. Apparently, the Rams have lost their last five away fixtures in the campaign.

Besides that, Derby has recorded only one win in their 11 away games this season in the league so far. Hence, we can expect the Rams to have trouble at Wigan.

Apart from that, their previous league encounter with Reading cost three points in the 3-0 scoreline. Also, they are winless in the past five fixtures in the campaign.

Henceforth, we can expect the host to have the upper hand in the game. To be safer, we can go with a double chance in the clash favoring Wigan.
