Blackburn Rovers will look to extend their unbeaten streak to 10 games when they face Wigan Athletic in the FA Cup third round.

Daniel Ayala and Sam Gallagher are likely to be among the Blackburn players who will be given the opportunity to play at DW Stadium this afternoon.

Aynsley Pears, Tyrhys Dolan, Tayo Edun, Daniel Butterworth and Bradley Johnson are also in line for the starting lineup. While Leighton Clarkson is no longer an option for Blackburn after returning to club Liverpool in this winter market.

News from Wigan

League One team Wigan have achieved their own unbeaten streak of 13 games in all competitions and will be looking to keep up.

Given how he managed his team earlier this week, coach Leam Richardson can select the same starting eleven he used in the game against Oldham.

Joe Bennett and James McClean can return to the team after missing that game, while James Jones and Kelland Watts are both options after they remained as backups and were not used.

Key player of Blackburn

The talented German player Reda Khadra is a great midfielder, very versatile, capable of playing multiple roles on the offensive front. Very fast, a feat that makes him particularly effective on the attack front, he is often praised for his spirit of sacrifice and strength of character. Equipped with an excellent sense of position, he also knows how to define in front of goal.

6:40 AM10 days ago

Key player of Wigan

Will Keane was the striker who at Old Trafford thought would make it to the first team. He was the center forward of the generation that won the youth cup in 2011, still remembered today. There were also Lingard, Johnstone, or even his twin brother Michael, today Everton center-back, then right-back.

After several injuries and many team changes, he trained for several weeks with Wigan until, finally, last year, he was offered a professional contract in the third division of English football.

6:30 AM10 days ago


Such has been Blackburn's level of performance in recent weeks that everyone associated with the club was disappointed with a goalless draw against Huddersfield Town in their final match. That result ended the Rovers' six-game winning streak, though on the other hand they extended their period without experiencing a loss to nine games.

Combined with the nervous 2-1 win over Barnsley, coach Tony Mowbray may be concerned the momentum is starting to turn, but that doesn't mean he won't be delighted with his current situation. Although at risk of being overtaken by third-placed Fulham, Blackburn are only three points behind the leaders, a scenario that will weaken the priority of advancing in this competition.

However, given the number of unchanged starting lineups he recently named, Mowbray now has the opportunity to give playing time to players who want to be actively involved during the second half of the 2021-22 season.

6:25 AM10 days ago


With local pride at stake, Leam Richardson cannot make as many modifications as he would like at a time when he will be wary of catching up in League One. However, with no league games played since December 18, Richardson will be grateful for the competitive nature of this FA Cup.

A near-complete team thrashed Oldham Athletic 6-0 in the EFL Trophy on Tuesday night, but Wigan didn't have to really work hard to fire their hosts at Boundary Park. Many of the same players will hope to re-enter the first FA Cup tie between the two clubs since 1998, when the Rovers won 4-2 at Ewood Park.

6:20 AM10 days ago

The match will be played at the DW Stadium

The Wigan vs Blackburn match will be played at the DW Stadium, in Wigan, with a capacity of 25,138 people.

Tomorrow night from Wigan, in the North West of England, the activity of the Third Round of the FA Cup will continue.

In a match of great rivalry, Leam Richardson's Latics host Tony Mowbray's Rovers at DW Stadium.
