Wigan 2-2 Derby Highlights
Paul Jewell’s return to the JJB Stadium ended in defeat as second half goals from Paul Scharner and Antonio Valencia gave Wigan all three points.
Scharner pounced on the hour mark to turn the ball in at the far post after Emile Heskey’s close range effort was parried by Derby keeper Roy Carroll.
Valencia wrapped up the points six minutes from time, crashing a shot into the roof of the net from six yards out. The result moves Wigan up three places to 14th while Derby remain bottom.
The Rams have now gone a club record 21 league matches without a win and are heading ever closer to the Championship.
It was the visitors who managed the first effort on goal after six minutes, Stephen Pearson shooting straight at Wigan keeper Chris Kirkland from the left hand side of the 18 yard box.
