Blackburn Rovers vs Wigan Athletic
English Football League Championship
Date: Saturday, 4th March 2017
Kick off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Ewood Park.
Blackburn Rovers will take on fellow strugglers Wigan Athletic in a huge match for both sides.
The teams are currently below the line and with 13 matches left to be played there is just no room for a mistake here.
The Riversiders decided to take a gamble and change their manager in the crucial part of the season. The chairman was obviously not satisfied with the fact Rovers’ Championship destiny is heavily challenged.
This proves to be a huge decision since the Tony Mowbray is off to a flying start. He drew 1-1 with Burton at Pirelli on his debut, while the very next round has seen the team snatching three points against top half Derby County 1-0 at Ewood Park.
The visitors are also desperate to stay in the division. The Tics signed a host of new players during the January transfer window, but they still somehow fail to deliver in the final third.
Warren Joyce’s lads scored a single goal in last four league matches and they are desperate to improve the fact ahead of one of the most important fixtures of the season.
Blackburn Rovers vs Wigan Athletic: Head to head
Blackburn lead the head to head tie by four wins, but Wigan were the victorious side from the first meeting between the two teams in this term of Championship.
Joyce’s men produced probably the best display of the campaign back in August last year in the 3-0 drubbing of the Blue and Whites at The DW Stadium. Will Grigg and Nick Powell were on target.
Blackburn Rovers vs Wigan Athletic: Prediction
It is difficult to say which of the two strugglers will come out victorious. None of the sides can afford a defeat and they have both beet poor up front in the recent period.
