Blackburn Rovers vs Wigan Athletic Match Prediction

By William Hall

Blackburn welcome Wigan to Ewood Park this weekend for a huge game at the bottom end of the Championship. The two sides are separated by just two points coming into this game and are both currently in the relegation zone. However, a win for either of them could lift them out of the bottom three. Blackburn come into this one of the back of an impressive win over Derby which would have fueled them for this game with Wigan also picking up a point, drawing 0-0 at home to Nottingham Forest. Our SBAT preview will bring you a form guide, team news and betting preview.

Betting Tips and Predictions

I can see this game being very scrappy and edgy. Both sides have everything to play for in this game meaning the players will be massively under pressure. Blackburn have been looking better recently and are not losing by much but with them being under a lot of pressure this weekend, I would not put much on them.

 

Draw 23/10

Under 2.5 goals 8/15

Blackburn preview

As previously mentioned, Blackburn come into this game of the back of a 1-0 win over Derby County which has put them on the blink of getting out of the bottom three. However, they have to remain calm at this stage as that was their first win in five games. They will see this as a perfect opportunity to turn their season around once and for all and finally get out of the relegation places, against all the odds. Blackburn strikers Danny Graham and on loa Southampton striker Sam Gallagher have formed a good partnership this season as the pair have scored 21 goals between them. If you were having a bet on a goalscorer in this game over the weekend, I would defiantly suggest it being one of those two. With Blackburn being the home team in the fixture, they will definitely feel they have an advantage and it is one they really need to take advantage on as it could prove critical come the end of the season.

Wigan Preview

Wigan are two points below Blackburn at this stage, also meaning they are a win away from getting out of the relegation zone. It has been a very long and tough season for Wigan, but it is a season that they can still make a successful one if they can get something from this game. If they go and lose this match, I really cannot see them making up the points to stay in the division come the end of the season. However, if they can even get a point from this one, there may still be some hope within the side to go out and stay in the Championship. Away from home Wigan are a bit hit and miss. They have won two of their last five, losing the other three. They will be hoping they can put on another good performance this weekend which they are more than capable of doing. Wigan haven’t really got a player who is running away will the goalscoring this season, but they have a squad who are always chipping in now and then which is helping them pick up points.
