Reason For Blackburn Rovers vs Wigan Predictions

  • Blackburn are on a fine run of form ahead of this clash.
  • Wigan have failed to win any of their last 10 matches.
  • The Latics have won 1 of their last 32 away Championship games.
  • Blackburn have won 9 of 11 home meetings with Wigan.

Opportunity for Rovers

Things have been great for Blackburn in recent weeks, who have seen their season turn around. They’ve won as many games since the 23rd of November (5) as they had in the three and a half months before that. Now they meet a Wigan side who are fighting for survival.

It’s hard to believe these two sides jostled for promotion from League One at the same time. Their second seasons at this level have gone in very different directions. The hosts are up in ninth and in the playoff picture, while Wigan are second-bottom.

Winless Wigan in Trouble

The visitors have fallen to 23rd in the table after failing to win a game since mid-October. When you compare that record to Blackburn – six victories since the start of November – it’s hard to make much of a case for the visitors. They are on the longest winless run of any Championship side, which could be extended here.

Wigan have won just once in their last 32 away games at this level, while their 2-1 loss at Luton in their last trip has left them with eight losses from 11 away matches so far. Unlike last season, their home record isn’t propping them up. They come here with 12 losses in 22 games.

Home Comforts for Rovers

Wigan’s away form sets them up for a loss, while we expect the visitors to go down with a poor result here. The Latics have lost nine of their last 11 matches with Blackburn at this ground, while the home side has won only one of the last 20 league meetings between these two sides.

Blackburn have won their last four matches at home, while their recent strong form makes them worthy favourites against one of the league’s worst travelling sides. We expect Blackburn to follow up on their recent successes, with a home win our tip for this clash.

With Rovers winning by a single goal in their last four at Ewood Park – including back to back 1-0 wins – we’re backing a 1-0 victory. That’s been Wigan’s most frequent away defeat, while the hosts have won by a one-goal margin in 80% of their victories so far this term.
