Wigan vs Derby Match Preview

Wigan were in action Monday night and battled out a goalless draw at Blackburn their third in successive games.  A lack of goals is an issue at the moment with just two from their last three and six in the last  eight.

At the DW Stadium, the Latics last played December 14th and on that occasion they were held to a 1-1 draw by Huddersfield.  It is back-to-back home draws for Athletic and no victory in the last five in front of their own fans.

Derby continued their recent woes by going down 3-0 at Reading but the game clearly turned on them playing 87 minutes with just ten men.  It is six without a victory for the East Midlands outfit who have lost four of these.

Away from Pride Park, the Rams have lost six successive Championship matches and failed to net in any of those.  Phillip Cocu needs to find a new formula on the road as you have to go back to August 3rd for the last (and only) victory on their travels.

It is hard to argue with the prices on offer here if Wigan had not been in action Monday night they might have appealed but as such they don’t.  Nor though do Derby who played with ten men for 87 minutes and will not be much fresher.

Sometimes when legs are tired the game is open and teams make mistakes and other times it is a tight gruelling affair with little creativity on show.  We lean towards the latter and as such no in the both teams to score market appeals.  Under 2.5 goals makes sense from that point of view but to get a little extra value go under 1.5 goals.
