Recent respective form guides
Derby County's home form is most definitely relegation standard, collecting just 1 solitary point from the last six. While Rams have scored 4, a worringly large 14 have been leaked at the other end.
Wigan Ath.'s away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While the Latics have hit 6 goals, 12 have hit the back of the wrong net.
Derby County find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 21 games have yielded only 7 points. Wigan Ath. are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 17 points from 21 matches.

FootyMad's prediction ...
Nothing seems to be going right for the Rams at home recently, and I can see no immediate turn around in fortunes as the Latics come away with an easy victory. Away win
