Paul Cook's side head into the game in 20th place on 36 points, three points clear of Rotherham United in the final relegation place, knowing a victory against Blackburn could see Latics rise back up to 19th above the Royals who face Leeds United at 8.00pm.

Rovers sit 17th on 44 points after a tough run of six defeats from their previous seven matches, including a derby day loss to Preston North End last Saturday.

EARLY TEAM NEWS

WIGAN ATHLETIC

Latics made four changes against Reading FC on Saturday, with Antonee Robinson returning from an ankle injury, Jonas Olsson making his debut in defence, Nick Powell starting for the first time since his hamstring and calf injuries and Joe Garner in for Leon Clarke.

Squad rotation saw a number of players miss out on the 18-man match day squad, with Anthony Pilkington sidelined through an injury to his knee.

Speaking on iFollow Latics on Monday morning, Latics boss Paul Cook said the forward could return at the weekend against Bolton Wanderers, but is more likely to be involved after the international break.

Cook said:

"Anthony has had a problem with his knee, but I've been updated this morning and he's going to be back out on the grass this week, with a small chance of a return to the squad at the weekend."

He also added:

"It's been a tough week and it was a tough journey home for everyone on Saturday.

"We always come in a bit later on a Monday, have a bit of lunch and regroup properly.

"Our supporters will know that we make team selection decisions based on what is right and correct. What we want with the remaining games to come is to have our best players fit for as many games as possible.

"We all know the importance of every game, so we have to make decisions with the club's best interests at heart."

BLACKBURN ROVERS

Tony Mowbray has selection issues at the back for Tuesday night's game, with hamstring injuries to three of his key defenders.

Darragh Lenihan hasn't feature for Rovers since the start of February, whilst Jack Rodwell missed Saturday's clash with Preston North End and Charlie Mulgrew limped off.

Wigan Athletic fell to a hugely disappointing defeat at Blackburn Rovers on Tuesday night as their Sky Bet Championship away troubles continued.

Danny Graham scored either side of half-time to give Tony Mowbray’s side the lead before Bradley Dack’s late goal ensured all three points for the hosts.

Latics made one change to their starting XI from Saturday's 3-2 defeat at Reading, with Wales international Lee Evans replacing Nathan Byrne who missed out due to illness.

Dack shot wide for the first chance of the game on two minutes before Nick Powell curled a free-kick over from the edge of the area minutes later.

Joe Garner headed off target from a Lee Evans corner before Dack spurned a couple of opportunities for the hosts as Latics struggled to gain control of the game – the first of those two chances for Dack being well-saved by Jamie Jones.

Latics took a huge blow eight minutes before half-time, though, as Reece James caught Harrison Reed when trying to clear in the penalty area and referee Christopher Kavanagh pointed to the spot. Graham stepped up and put away the penalty clinically.

Cook replaced Gavin Massey with Callum McManaman at half-time and the winger immediately created an opportunity for Powell, but his header went off the outside of the post and wide.

A James cross then found Garner but he headed off target once more as Latics’ search for a goal continued.

However, their task was made much harder when a long ball forward found Graham in behind the Latics defence and he slotted home calmly.

Evans fired wide from range and substitute Josh Windass forced a save from David Raya as Latics looked for a response but, in truth, chances were rare.

Dack’s third summed up a hugely frustrating defeat with Latics facing their most important game of the season on Saturday when local rivals Bolton Wanderers visit the DW Stadium.
