Blackburn Rovers host Wigan Athletic tomorrow evening in another local game after last weekend’s disappointment against Preston North End.
Tony Mowbray’s side have dropped off in recent weeks after a pretty dreadful run of form.
Rovers have not won in their last seven games and have lost six of those, this after a run of three successive victories.
Blackburn have slipped down to 17th in the table and off the pace of the play-offs, and 11 points ahead of the relegation zone and play-off places respectively.
A second home game in four days will give Mowbray a chance to make amends for the loss to Preston this past weekend and get a much-needed win to arrest their current slump.
With that said, this is Blackburn XI that Mowbray must field in order to halt their slide.
GK: David Raya
Raya has been a consistent member of the Rovers this season and will surely need to start tomorrow.
CB: Ryan Nyambe
A right-sided centre-half in a 3-5-2 formation which may be used again with Charlie Mulgrew injured.
CB: Derrick Williams
Williams could be the main man in the middle for Rovers tomorrow.
CB: Amari’i Bell
Ousted this past weekend but came on for Mulgrew and could play again here.
RM: Harrison Reed
Reed kicks off the five-man midfield.
RCM: Richie Smallwood
Smallwood should retain his place in the starting XI despite coming off in the 72nd minute last time out.
LCM: Lewis Travis
The 21-year-old has been drip fed Championship football this season and should come back in the side for the first time since the Rotherham defeat at the start of March.
LM: Elliott Bennett
Bennett was on the left of a midfield four last time out and could be there again.
CAM: Bradley Dack
The mercurial attacker will be deployed in the number ten role once more.
ST: Adam Armstrong
In a front pair with Danny Graham at the weekend, expect Armstrong to stay there.
ST: Danny Graham
That lone striker tomorrow will be Graham who will have ample support behind him as they look to get a win over struggling Wigan.
