With only a few hours to the game, I am quiet looking forward to it (I hope). It was in a way a good Sunday yesterday for Wigan. Bolton's failure to win was a big plus, but that was counter balanced by QPR winning. Had both of them drawn, then a point against Blackburn tonight would keep us up beyond all doubt.

Now however it won't. That is unless Bolton manage to score nine past Stoke City, and QPR managed to stop Manchester City from winning the title at Loftus Road.

So there are a still lot of if buts and maybes attached to the game and the survival race. Ideally we want three points, that relegates Blackburn (I am sure we would all lose sleep over that) and means that we would be safe beyond all doubt and could go into a final game against Wolves free to play how we wish, and for once enjoy ourselves.

That is of course we win at Ewood Park, a ground we have yet to win at since being in the Premier League. I am sure the lads will want to put that right, and show the cameras just how well they can play.

Keep the Faith!
