Match preview

Two sides in the midst of altogether hit-and-miss Championship campaigns are set to go head-to-head at the DW Stadium on Tuesday, October 11th.

The clash in question will see Wigan Athletic play host to Blackburn Rovers, in one of two rearranged fixtures in England’s 2nd-tier this week.

Starting with the former, Wigan have endured a tough time of things since football’s return on the back of the latest international break.

The Latics headed into last month’s early-season stop-gap flying high, owing to a streak of three wins from four.

Since, however, Leam Richardson’s troops have fallen to successive defeats, at the hands of Hull City and, most recently, Cardiff City by three goals to one this past weekend.

Such woes have culminated in Wigan slipping to 16th in the Championship table, owing to a remarkably balanced record of four wins, four draws, and four losses.

The Latics’ upcoming opponents, on the other hand, will head into proceedings with spirits in an altogether more positive place in the camp.

This comes with Blackburn fresh off an impressive triumph last time out.

After being dealt a hard-fought defeat by Cardiff in their own return to action post-international break, Jon Dahl Tomasson and co. recovered in style last time out, courtesy of a 3-0 drubbing of Rotherham.

Star hitman Ben Brereton Diaz, unsurprisingly, proved the star of the show, notching a brace at Ewood Park to take his season tally to a none-too-shabby seven Championship goals.

Blackburn, in turn, will make the trip to the DW Stadium in the knowledge that a fresh three-point haul will guide them into the thick of the promotion playoff fight.

And we at 101 are backing Tuesday’s visitors to manage exactly that, courtesy of an entertaining 90 minutes featuring goals from both sides.
