Wigan vs Blackburn Rovers Betting Tips

Wigan host Blackburn this weekend, aiming to extend their commendable unbeaten run as they claw away from the relegation places. Their 2-1 defeat by Preston on February 8 was their last Championship loss. Blackburn are just a point and two places behind Preston, at the time of writing.

This makes for an interesting test that Paul Cook's players have to overcome. They relish big games: beating both leaders West Brom and second-placed Leeds is evidence of that.

However, they have been too inconsistent this term and struggled, particularly towards the end of 2019. Saturday sees them host a Blackburn side hoping to reach the playoffs this summer.

Their 3-1 win over fellow hopefuls Bristol City last time out saw them break into the top eight. There are a cluster of sides who are quietly aiming for a postseason berth, from Cardiff to 13th-placed QPR. Anything is possible between now and the end of the campaign, while form is an unreliable outlier in games like these.

Their H2H meetings are fairly even over the past few seasons, with neither side particularly dominant. It rather typifies both sides' standing in the Championship: established clubs unable to bridge the gap to Premier League promotion.

Adam Armstrong came off the bench to score during Rovers' 3-1 win over Bristol last Saturday. He's their top scorer (12) and while creative midfielder Bradley Dack is sidelined, perhaps their main attacking focal point.

Wigan vs Blackburn Rovers Correct Score Predictions

Wigan will be quietly confident they can emerge with all three points. They should be, given their recent form – but Blackburn cannot afford to drop points against them if they harbour serious promotion hopes.
