4-3-3: Steve McClaren must select this Derby XI to smash Wigan on Saturday

Published

Derby County travel to the DW Stadium on Saturday to face Wigan Athletic.

Steve McClaren’s men have now recorded four consecutive wins in the league, climbing from the edge of the relegation zone to just 3 points from a play-off place since the former England boss returned as Derby manager.

The Rams go into the game having beaten Norwich City in their last match, with Bradley Johnson bagging the winner against his former club, while Warren Joyce tasted victory as Wigan boss for the first time on Monday night as they beat high-flying Huddersfield 2-1.

The last time these two sides met, Derby ran out 2-0 winners at the DW Stadium in a win that all but condemned the Latics to relegation to League One.

Stephen Warnock, who could captain Wigan at the weekend, started for the Rams on that day.

A win for Joyce’s side could lift them out of the bottom three, while Derby have a chance of climbing into the play-offs for the first time this season if they pick up the three points.
