Wigan Athletic Preview – Will the Latics extend unbeaten run?

Since losing four of five league and cup games over the New Year period, Wigan Athletic have lost just one Championship fixture. Paul Cook’s men have made themselves extremely hard to beat, winning six, drawing three and losing only one of their last ten Championship encounters.

Since a narrow 2-1 defeat to Preston North End in early February, Athletic are undefeated in seven (four wins, three draws), taking 15 points from a possible 21. As a result, Wigan have moved up to 17th, three points clear of the bottom three. They still have work to do in the race for survival, but things are looking much rosier in the DW garden nowadays.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score – No

(odds taken 1410 GMT, Friday 26 June)

Wigan returned to action last weekend with an excellent win against Huddersfield Town at the John Smith’s Stadium. Goals either side of the break from Jamal Lowe and Anthony Pilkington did the business for Cook and his side. That was Wigan’s fourth win in five Championship games.

Blackburn Rovers Preview – Can Rovers make it back-to-back wins in the Championship?

Blackburn Rovers got their Premier League promotion bid back on track with a superb win over fellow top-six hopefuls Bristol City last Saturday. Having gone four matches without victory, the 3-1 success over the Robins was just what the doctor ordered at Ewood Park. Corry Evans, Tosin Adarabioyo and Adam Armstrong got the goals for Rovers.

Tony Mowbray’s boys have had a fine season in the second tier so far. With eight matches to go, Blackburn are well and truly in the mix in eighth spot. Preston North End are holding on to the final play-off place, but several clubs are chasing down Alex Neil’s men, including Blackburn, who are just a point behind.

Before losing 3-0 at Derby County before the enforced break, Blackburn had won two and drawn two of their previous four away games in the Championship, winning at Sheffield Wednesday (5-0) and Charlton Athletic (2-0), and drawing with Middlesbrough (1-1) and Brentford (2-2). Can Mowbray’s men get back to winning ways on the road this weekend?
