Wigan Athletic vs Blackburn Rovers (3-1) - Match Review




Another shambolic performance form Blackburn Rovers as we are beaten by Wigan Athletic 3-1 at the DW Stadium.

No real response from Rovers following their defeat on the weekend against Preston, as Rovers lacked ideas and any attacking urgency.

Problems at the back gave Wigan opportunities to score and they took full advantage.

The only conciliation for Rovers was a late own goal which gave them a small lifeline, that was later taken away.  Not great, we need a win fast!

Wigan Athletic: Walton, Morsy (c), Kipre, Burn, Evans, James, Naismith, Byrne, Roberts (Connolly, 79), Powell (Windass, 22), Vaughan (McManaman, 79) .
