Blackburn Rovers will be looking to get themselves to safety sooner rather than later and took a big step towards that last night.
Rovers have adapted pretty well to life back in the Championship and have never really been under threat from the drop.
They were on a bad run, though, that needed to be addressed before things got serious and they took a positive step towards doing that last night as they beat Wigan 3-0.
A good win for Tony Mowbray’s men, then, and it is clear that Rovers have got plenty going for them at the moment.
However, one thing that has apparently caused a bit of friction is the fact that Scotland could potentially play Charlie Mulgrew in the international break after he was called up – as per Alan Nixon on Twitter:
BLACKBURN. Not happy with idea of Mulgrew playing for Scotland while nursing a hamstring. More online later.

The defender hobbled off in the loss to Preston and did not feature last night, with it clear that he is still looking after the knock.
Rovers have every right to be unhappy with this news.
Mulgrew is a good player, one of their best in fact, and even though they are not under threat from relegation directly at the moment, they’d rather not risk him being out for longer than he needs to be.
Scotland have plenty of cover, too, so if he plays the Lancashire side has every right to be cross.
