Our football match prediction:
Wigan Athletic suffered a heavy 3-0 loss to Reading in their last home game in the Championship and they failed to score in a goalless draw with Barnsley as well. The Latics sit in the relegation zone ahead of Saturday’s football match against Derby County, meaning that this has to go down as a must-win game for the hosts. Wigan, though, failed to find the net in last three home games in the league and we are not tempted to put our money on Warren Joyce’s troops. Derby County made a slow start to the season, but it seems as if they managed to overcome the crisis and the Rams will be aiming to build on a win over Norwich City when the face Wigan Athletic at the DW Stadium. Derby aim to move a little closer to the play-offs berth and we predict that the visitors will emerge triumphant in Saturday’s clash.
