Former Liverpool defender and current Match of the Day pundit Mark ‘Lawro` Lawrenson has done his weekly round of predictions for the BBC and he is predicting that Saturday`s Premier League game between Blackburn Rovers and Wigan Athletic at Ewood Park will end in a home win for Blackburn, let`s see what his reasons are:
Blackburn v Wigan
Blackburn have had two defeats in their last four at home and I think Sam Allardyce has alluded to the fact that they have got to start improving on a home record that was one of the best in the country last season.
I thought they played really well against Chelsea, and big Sam will be saying ‘let’s get in their faces’.
I have got no clue what Wigan will be doing from one minute to the next never mind one game to the next – they are consistently inconsistent and will flirt with relegation.
It seems to me quite a few of their players are there because they think they will get sold on, but I expect this will be a nice old-fashioned Lancashire derby – hopefully with a few strong tackles.
Easy option going for the home side Lawro, I think this will be a 1-1 draw
