Blackburn Rovers

21-y/o starts: The Blackburn XI that Tony Mowbray must play v Wigan tomorrow



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.
