Match preview

Blackburn have alternated wins and losses over the past seven weeks but they can break the cycle by beating Wigan at DW Stadium.

Despite their inconsistencies, Rovers are seventh and need a win over Wigan to put them level with the top three in the Championship – Sheffield United, Norwich and QPR.

Jon Dahl Tomasson’s side have found life more difficult on the road – losing four of six away games – but are making the short trip to Wigan in good spirits after Saturday’s 3-0 home win against Rotherham.

Rovers’ attack enjoyed a good balance at the weekend, when Sam Gallagher made just his second start since August and provided valuable support to top scorer Ben Brereton Diaz.

The duo was a handful for the Millers, and there were flashes of genius from attacking midfielder Sammie Szmodics, who contributed a goal and an assist.

Blackburn look sharp in attack and have improved at the back, conceding just four goals in their last five matches.

Tomasson’s side have the ingredients to do better on the road and have a great opportunity against Wigan, who are the only second tier team without a win at home.

Wigan lost 3-1 at home to Cardiff on Saturday to leave them with just three points from a possible 18 at the DW Stadium.

The Latics’ away record – four wins in six games – has kept its head above water, but there has been a lack of urgency and confidence in their home performances and that trend may continue.

Key stat

Wigan have not won any of their last eight home games.
