Derby County vs Wigan Athletic

Frank Lampard desperately needs his side to find form and this Tuesday will have the chance to do so when they return to Pride Park, where they will go up against Wigan Athletic. Lampard’s first season as a manager had been going very well with his side at one point sitting as title contenders, but poor form has seen them fall outside of the top six. As for Paul Cook’s men, they have had a tough season and are trying their best to steer clear of the bottom three which sits just three points below them. When these sides met at the DW Stadium, the Rams clinched the three points with a narrow 1-0 win.

Derby County are in serious need of a confidence booster as their recent form has been filled with disappointment. The Rams head into this match sat down in seventh place, three points off the pace of Bristol City who sit in sixth. County have gone five games without a win and more worryingly have lost their last four matches on the bounce. Aston Villa dealt the most recent defeat and left Lampard red-faced when they eased to a 4-0 win. If you fancy the hosts to shake off their poor form then SkyBet is offering odds of 17/20 for them to win.
