CONFIRMED: Blackburn and Wigan line-ups

Ewood Park

Here is how Blackburn Rovers and Wigan Athletic will line up for this afternoon’s Championship match:

Blackburn Rovers starting XI: Robinson, Baptiste, Hanley, Kilgallon, Olsson, Marshall, Evans, Cairney, Conway, Rhodes, Gestede

Subs: Steele, King, Varney, Williamson, Taylor, Duffy, Tunnicliffe

Wigan Athletic starting XI: Carson, Taylor, Ramis, McManaman, Huws, Boyce, Cowie, Perch, Kiernan, Kvist, Delort

Subs: Al Habsi, Tavernier, Riera, Maloney, Barnett, Forshaw, Waghorn

The last time these two sides met it was a humdinger, with Blackburn winning 4-3 back in May.

Fans hoping for a repeat may be left disappointed in terms of the score-line but possibly not the result, with Wigan’s record at Ewood Park disappointing to say the least.

The Latics have won just once in their previous 10 visits to Blackburn in all competitions – that a 1-0 Premier League win in 2012.

This season both sides have seven points after five matches, with Wigan’s goal-difference keeping them two places higher than today’s hosts at the time of writing.

The Latics are on something of a run after winning their last two matches, while Rovers have won two and lost two of their last four games.
