Wigan vs Blackburn Match Stats

Wigan have made a solid start to life back in the Championship with ten points from their opening seven games (one game lower than most) which puts them 15th. Last time out they picked up a good three points on the road with a 2-1 defeat of Luton which makes it four points from their last two.

At the DW Stadium, the Latics are without a victory this season having played four, drawn three and lost one. Their last three have seen both teams score with two of these ending in a 1-1 draw.

Blackburn were tipped by many to struggle a little more this season than previous ones but it has been a good start with 12 points from their first eight and sat in seventh place. They are though struggling for form with four of their last five ending in defeat.

Away from Ewood Park, Rovers have been a mixed bag this campaign with wins at Blackpool and Swansea and defeats at Reading and Sheffield United. Ben Brereton enjoys a road trip with two in his last four on his travels.

Wigan vs Blackburn Match Stats

Each of the last three and five of the last six Wigan games have seen both teams manage to find the back of the net. Blackburn come into this on the back of a 3-2 thriller with Bristol City that showed both their strength going forward and their weaknesses at the back. Backing both teams to find the back of the net looks the play in this one.

After a slow start to the season (perhaps caused by transfer distractions) Ben Brereton is slowly beginning to find form again. He looked lively in the last game to bring his tally to the season for four. Two of these have come in road matches and he looks good value to net at least once here.
