Blackburn R. prepare to entertain Wigan Athletic at Ewood Park on Sunday afternoon, aiming to preserve their record of never having lost at home to the visitors. The majority of those games have been won by the Rovers.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Ewood Park was less than a year ago, in April 2006, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1-1 final scoreline in a Premiership match.
