Wigan eager to make ground back on Blackburn

Will Grigg is on fire

Will Grigg scores Wigan's winner against Man City
1 of 1

Sky Bet League One
Sky Sports Football, midday Sunday

Wigan’s dream run to the last eight of the FA Cup has handed Blackburn the advantage in the Sky Bet League One title race but the Latics have had plenty of time to ponder since their last league outing and should be fully wound up at Ewood Park.

Table-topping Blackburn sit six points clear of Wigan but Paul Cook’s men have four games in hand and a ten-day layoff since their last match, a 1-0 victory over relegation-threatened Rochdale, leaving them them fresh for the biggest League One showdown of the campaign.

Rovers are the form side - they have lost just once in their last 24 league matches - but defensive lapses can sometimes make their life harder than it needs to be and Wigan have the attacking resources to punish any mishaps.

Blackburn have conceded in five of their last six home matches - Scunthorpe, Northampton and Oldham all escaped with a point - and the well organised Latics should fancy their chances.

Wigan have illustrated their class throughout this season’s FA Cup - a 1-0 win over Premier League leaders Manchester City highlights that - and having shipped just 18 times in 31 league matches, Rovers will have their work cut out to find a breakthrough.

The visitors have won six of their last seven away league matches and in Will Grigg, who has notched 16 league goals this term, they have a striker capable of causing Blackburn plenty of problems.

These are a two quality sides, which both look set for promotion, but punters shouldn't forget how good Wigan were before the distraction of the FA Cup and the big occasion could motivate them to return to their best.

Recommendation
Wigan draw no bet
