THE PREDICTION

Two of the league's worst away sides meet at the DW Stadium with both managers under big pressure to turn things around. Derby's capitulation at Reading was not helped by a red card to Malone in the early stages but they have lost their last six on the road and this looks like a lifeline for Wigan.
