Lawro Predicts - Latics v Blackburn

Lawro Predicts - Latics v Blackburn



Mark 'Lawro' Lawrenson has done his weekly round of Premier League predictions for the BBC, the Match of the Day pundit is forecasting that Saturdays Premier League clash between Wigan Athletic and Blackburn Rovers at the DW Stadium will end in a home win, let's take a look at his reasons:

Wigan v Blackburn

A massive game, but a fact that will not be reflected in the size of the crowd on display.

In the north west we call this a 'towsy' game. It will be a dog eat dog affair, it won't be great football and there will be lots of tackles flying in with both sides really struggling to stay up this season.

Wigan have been on a horrid run but could have got a point at Wolves last time out and the fact that they do have to win may be the incentive they need to defend better.

Roberto Martinez could have jumped ship in the summer but didn't and his situation looks relatively calm when compared to Steve Kean at Blackburn.

Blackburn have been under less pressure away from home and have played better away from their home fans but I back Wigan to come out on top.

Prediction: 2-1


I don't know what a 'towsy' is? Anyway home win for me also, the run has to end sometime, doesn't it? 2-0 Latics win for me
