Blackburn Rovers vs Wigan Athletic: Open Thread

Blackburn’s Premier League status is hanging by a thread. Anything other than a win tonight at Ewood Park will send them down to the nPower Championship next season. Meanwhile, a win for Wigan Athletic today will guarantee their Premier League survival for another season. Needless to say, there’s everything to play for in today’s match (2:45pm ET/7:45pm BST; live on ESPN2 and in the United States).

Blackburn team: Robinson, Olsson, Givet, Dunn, Modeste, Pedersen, Dann, Orr, Hoilett, Yakubu, Lowe

Wigan team: Al Habsi, Alcaraz, McCarthy, Caldwell, Di Santo, Maloney, McArthur, Boyce, Beausejour, Moses, Figueroa

With a relegation battle like this one, expect plenty of fireworks on the pitch tonight. Plus, if the night doesn’t go well for Rovers, expect a lot of abuse to be directed at manager Steve Kean by the Rovers supporters.
