Blackburn Rovers Prediction – Can Blackburn break into top six?

Having won 5 of their last 6 matches overall in the Championship, 9th placed Blackburn Rovers look set for further success in this upcoming Lancashire against bottom club, Wigan Athletic, and another three points for Tony Mowbray’s side would see Rovers move up into 6th place,

Recent wins against Barnsley, Brentford, Stoke City, Derby County and Bristol City have maintained Blackburn’s challenge for a possible play-off spot later in the season, and they’ll be hoping this winning momentum can produce positive results over the festive period.

Rovers also possess a reasonable looking home record of 6-3-2 15/10 and this includes Blackburn winning their last 4 matches on the trot at Ewood Park with victories over Sheffield Wednesday, Barnsley, Brentford and Derby County.

Midfielder Dack (9 goals) along with forwards Armstrong (5 goals) and Graham (2 goals) look the most likely for the hosts on Monday night, and the hosts have lost just 1 of their last 12 matches on home turf in the Championship.

Wigan Athletic Prediction – Can Wigan halt decline?

Following a miserable run of 10 matches without a win in the Championship, Wigan Athletic now find themselves bottom of the table as the visitors have slumped to 6 defeats within this poor 10-match stretch, and they face a tough trip to Blackburn to face their in-form hosts on Monday night.

Just 2 points separate Wigan from fourth from bottom side Luton Town but this 10-match run without a win means that Paul Cook’s Wigan side must now be at rock-bottom confidence-wise, while their results away from home have been poor throughout this season to date.

Wigan still remain one of only two sides yet to record an away win this season (Middlesbrough are the other team), and The Latics possess an away record that stands at a disappointing 0-3-8 9/21 which is the worst record on the road in the Championship so far this term.

With just 1 away win out of their last 32 matches on the road in the Championship, it’s hard to see how Wigan can cause a confident Blackburn side serious problems here at Ewood Park.


Key-Facts – Blackburn Rovers vs Wigan Athletic

  • Blackburn have won 5 of their last 6 matches in the Championship
  • Blackburn have lost just 1 of their last 12 matches on home turf
  • Wigan have won just 1 of their last 32 away matches in the Championship


Betting Tips Verdict

Blackburn with home advantage and winning momentum behind them should account for Wigan here.
