Derby County vs Wigan Athletic predictions, betting tips and match preview for the Championship fixture on Tuesday 5th March 2019. It has been a shocking few weeks for Derby County and they’ve now slipped outside the play-off places. See our predictions and betting tips below.
After being in the play-off places for almost the whole season so far, Derby are now three points outside the top six after a run of four matches without a win, and three losses on the bounce. Frank Lampard’s side were thrashed by Aston Villa at the weekend and that 4-0 defeat was also the third match in succession where they had failed to score a goal. The chances of automatic promotion have now gone but the Rams still have a chance to get back into the play-off places and we’re predicting a win for them against Wigan this week.
Wigan have picked up draws in each of their last four matches and they’re three points outside the relegation zone in the English Championship now. Away from home they have struggled and have only won once all season on their travels, so this looks like the perfect opportunity for Derby County to get back to winning ways.
Each time we preview a Derby County fixture we seem to be drawn to Harry Wilson as an anytime goalscorer. The youngster on loan from Liverpool has bagged himself 10 goals in the Championship this season already and is their top scorer. Striker Jack Marriott has got seven goals in the league so far and he’s one of the favourites in the anytime goalscorer odds for this match.
From a Wigan view point, we are predicting they’ll get on the scoresheet here and Joe Garner could be the most likely scorer – he is their penalty taker now Will Grigg has departed for Sunderland. Despite not predicting many goals in this match, we’re going to keep the faith with Harry Wilson for our betting tip in this midweek fixture.
A Derby victory has already been forecast by our tipster in this one but we do think the visitors will get on the scoresheet. Wigan have sometimes struggled to score away from home this season but have found the net in four of their last five Championship away matches now. Derby have failed to keep a clean sheet in five matches now and looking at their home form, they have conceded in five of their last six at home and four of those have been exactly one goal conceded.
