Wigan vs Derby – Prediction, Odds and Betting Tips – 26.12.2019

Match preview: Wigan vs Derby

Eleven league matches without a win for Paul Cook’s Wigan Athletic (D5, L6) sees the Wiganers one point from bottom. The Championship’s lowest goalscorers have drawn three straight league games however, but haven’t won a H2H matchup in six straight attempts (D1, L5).
Winless in five home league games, the ‘Latics’ haven’t scored over 1.5 home goals for seven straight league games and haven’t scored in three straight home H2Hs with Derby. Yet, there is some hope; Wigan have scored first in three Championship matches on the spin.
But looking sheepish themselves, Derby County are hunting their first win in six league matches (D2, L4) and have lost two matches ‘to-nil’ on the spin. Scoring just three goals in their last ten league games, the ‘Rams’ are the lowest goalscorers in the league over that period (GD 5:13).
Without a league win on the road since opening day (W1, D3, L7), Phillip Cocu’s side haven’t scored an away goal for 540 minutes and have shipped over 1.5 goals in five of their last seven trips. Despite the fact that Derby have scored first in just two awaydays so far, they’ve scored first in their last four trips to Wigan, and been victorious on each occasion.
Players to watch: In what could be a midfield battle of brawn, Wigan’s Sam Morsy has nine cautions this season, but five-goal defender Chey Dunkley returns from suspension and could pose a threat from corners.
Derby’s six-goal Martyn Waghorn hasn’t netted in four matches but may have added incentive to do so facing his former employers.
Stat attack: Beware! Just one of these teams’ last six H2H meetings have produced over 2.5 goals (total).
Wigan’s last six home league matches have produced three or more cautions.
Derby have conceded three goals within seven minutes in their last six Championship awaydays.
