Got m ticket yesterday, still waiting to see my first win this season, well fingers crossed

Savage might be fit enough to play, which is good news.

PREVIEW: DERBY v WIGAN ATHLETIC
Posted on: Thu 21 Feb 2008

Paul Jewell is rightly regarded as a legend at Wigan Athletic for what he achieved as their manager.

He arrived in the summer of 2001 with the Latics languishing in Division Two and left in the summer of 2007 with them established in the Premier League.

Along the way he guided them to a record-breaking promotion and a first-ever major cup final appearance - not bad for a club that didn't arrive in the Football League until three years after Derby won the last of their two titles.

Jewell's last act was to keep Wigan in the top-flight on the final day of last season thanks to a dramatic win at Sheffield United.

He resigned his role a few days later and took a break from football before returning to the game with the Rams in November.

Jewell will be made welcome by the home fans but he will, for the first time, be sat on the away bench.

MATCH FACTS


This will be the first top-flight meeting between the two sides at the JJB Stadium - and indeed the first top-flight meeting anywhere in Wigan.

Derby came from behind to win 2-1 on their last visit, on Boxing Day 2004, thanks to goals from Grzegorz Rasiak and Tommy Smith.

Gary Teale came on for Wigan that day but he misses out on a return having been loaned to Plymouth Argyle this week.

THE REFEREE


Staffordshire's Alan Wiley is the man in the middle for his first visit to Wigan's JJB Stadium this season.

He has been in charge of Derby twice during 2007/08 - bizarrely, the home and away games against Liverpool.

In his 31 games so far this season Wiley has flashed 106 yellow cards and added a further three reds.

wasn't even bothered about the game honestly, can't get too wrapped up in a match against Wigan away

btw in case nobody realized, the match ended 2:0

Jimbo, you went to the game. I must applaud you. How you can motivate yourself to do that I will never know. :thmbup:

If Carlsberg did forum signatures......

There must have been a good 3000 Derby fans there, we need our bloody heads looking at.

Yesterday was shocking even by this seasons standards.
