It is going to be a tough game

Tony Mowbray is anticipating a tough match against stubborn opposition when Rovers take on Wigan Athletic this Saturday.

As Rovers look to make it back-to-back wins in the league at Ewood tomorrow, the boss knows that it won't be easy against a Latics side with similar Championship ambitions.

Rovers go into the game two points ahead of Wigan, and know a win could see them move out of the bottom three, but Mowbray insists it will be far from easy.

"The Championship is a really tough league there are no easy games, so just because Wigan are right down at the bottom with us doesn't mean Wigan aren't going to be a pretty good team," said the manager.

"I was speaking to Steve McClaren after the game the other night and he said how resilient they were against Derby in a 0-0 draw. They are going to make life difficult for you to score and get behind and they can frustrate you.

"They've got the lad Bogle who is making quite a ripple in the league, he's upsetting people, he's powerful, he's strong and he wants to score goals.

"So we've got to be very mindful that it is going to be a tough game."
