Wigan Athletic face Derby County at Pride Park tonight, hoping for their first three points on the road this season.
The Latics have struggled so far, picking up just one point away from home, in a 2-2 draw against Hull City.
Paul Cook’s side fare much better at the DW Stadium. In their last four home matches, Wigan have kept four clean sheets and picked up ten points, which sees them sitting 18th in the table.
As expected, Dujon Sterling replaces the suspended Nathan Byrne. While, captain Sam Morsy returns to the starting XI, replacing Michael Jacobs.
It seems Cook is looking to pack the midfield tonight, and break quick, using the pace of Jamal Lowe and Gavin Massey.
Kieffer Moore is still searching for his first Latics goal, and he leads the line again after a good performance against Nottingham Forest on Sunday.
Lets have a look at how some of the Latics fans reacted to Cook’s line-up tonight to face Derby…
why’s he brought morsy straight back in?

Morsy playing further forward? Has worked well in the past
