What The Bosses Say - Blackburn v Latics




Latics go into the final league game of the season happy in the knowledge that they have already qualified for the playoffs, opponents Blackburn on the other hand look likely to miss out, despite being on a fantastic run of form.

A win at Birmingham last Tuesday guaranteed a top six finish for Uwe Rösler's side, just the opponents need sorting out, it'll be either QPR or Derby with Rösler claiming he isn't bothered which.

Blackburn need a minor miracle if they are to qualify in sixth spot, above them both Brighton and Reading need to lose whilst Rovers will need a victory over the Latics, plus Bowyer's men need to overturn a seven goal disadvantage in the Goal Difference column, a tough ask, but the Blackburn boss still harbours hope.

In the build up to the game both bosses have spoken to the media, let's take a look at what they've had to say:

Latics boss Uwe Rösler - 'Blackburn are coming off the back of a very good run'

'They've played with no pressure in the last few months and that's been a very good thing for them to have'

'They're full of confidence and they'll try to finish a season in which they probably had higher notes on a positive.

'Mentally for us it's important that we build momentum after beating Birmingham on Tuesday because after the Arsenal game we've had only the Reading game where we hit near our best and nearly secured our play-off spot then but since then things slipped away from us a little bit for different reasons.'



Blackburn boss Gary Bowyer - 'All we can do is concentrate on our game and try and beat a very good team in Wigan Athletic'

'Uwe Rösler has done a fantastic job there to turn it around from where they've come. To still have a chance of promotion is a phenomenal effort from him.

'His mentality will not allow them to ease up one little bit, he'll be on that touchline and he'll be organising them and making sure that they're as competitive as they can be.

'So we are aware of the challenge that lies ahead but as ever we'll just concentrate on us and see what we can perform at.'
