Wigan suffered a second successive defeat on Saturday when they went down 3-1 at home to Cardiff a result that dropped them to 16th spot. It is three defeat in four for the Latics who started the campaign well but have struggled of late.

At the DW Stadium, the Lancashire outfit are still chasing their first success having drawn three and lost three of the six played here. Both teams to score is a common feature of games in front of their own fans and has happened in four of the last five.

Blackburn continued their sequence of win one, lose one by comfortably beating Rotherham 3-0 at the weekend. Ben Brereton continued his recent good form with a brace making it five goals from his last seven.

Away from Ewood Park, Rovers have lost their last two and four of their last five struggling on their travels. They need to tighten up on the road having conceded a total of nine from their last five.

Wigan vs Blackburn Match Stats

Both teams to score looks the play here as Blackburn looked good going forward at the weekend bagging three at home to Rotherham. Four of the last five at the DW Stadium have seen this occur. These two sides also met in the FA Cup back in January and that one ended 3-2.

After a slow start to the season (perhaps caused by transfer distractions or perhaps from a busy summer) Ben Brereton is slowly beginning to find form again. He netted two at the weekend and looks value to net at any time. He has fine five goals in seven and will fancy his chances against a leaky Wigan defence.
