Nonetheless, the slump in form resulted with them falling down to the third place in the league standing and a defeat here could be the final farewell to the title ambitions. The momentum has changed for the team led by Paul Cook, though, when Wigan (off the back of two straight league losses then) shocked the Premier League leaders Manchester City 1-0 at The DW Stadium to advance into the quarterfinal of the FA Cup past the country’s heavyweights.

That shocking victory was followed with another narrow victory over the rock-bottomed Rochdale last weekend when the star man Will Grigg was rested. In his absence, the lone goal came from the left winger Michael Jacobs (his eighth of the campaign).

Cook’s men will be in for a huge challenge on Sunday facing the red-hot Blackburn Rovers side, The RIversiders took advantage of the mentioned drop in from if the Latics’ to win four on the bounce and claim the very top of the League One standings. The most recent success saw them net three past AFC Wimbledon in mid-week’s round. Team’s top scorer Bradley Dack confirmed his fine form by netting a brace.

Blackburn Rovers vs Wigan Athletic: Head-to-head

Wigan Athletic have a dreadful record in the history of matches at Ewood Park.

The Riversiders have won 9, drawn 1 and lost just 1 of 11 home matches against the Latics.

Interestingly, none of last four H2H meetings saw both teams on the scoresheet.

Blackburn Rovers vs Wigan Athletic: Prediction

Wigan have heavily relied on their defensive line of late and we believe that Paul Cook’s ,ain goal will be to keep things tight at the back at Ewood Park (much like he did in the mentioned win over the likes of Man City).

This is why we expect a very close game without top many real goal-scoring chances at both ends, and we’d even not be surprised to see another goalless draw here on Sunday.
