Rovers midfielder Elliott Bennett says he and his team-mates need to start right when Wigan Athletic visit Ewood Park on Sunday lunchtime.

A top-of-the-table clash looks like it'll be a mouth-watering prospect in East Lancashire, and Benno insists the side are relishing the chance to go up against the Latics.
 
After his first goal of the season, as expected, Benno's in buoyant mood, but says Rovers will have to respect Wigan when Paul Cook's side make the short trip north.
 
The Latics have been in and around the top three all season, and recently beat Manchester City in the FA Cup.
 
“Wigan have had a fantastic season," Bennett admitted. "We’re really looking forward to the game and will have to be at it from the first minute.
 
“Wigan are a good side. They haven’t been up there all season without being a good team. We’re relishing the opportunity against them again.
 
“It was a tight affair at their place, even though we did go down to 10 men. We’re really looking forward to it."
 
Can Rovers make it five wins on the spin when Wigan come to Ewood Park on Sunday for the mouthwatering top-of-the-table battle? Come and see for yourself! Ticket remain for the game and you can purchase yours by clicking here.
