It could happen today.
Wigan are in a season-saving run of form. Rovers have this as their must-win match as they travel to Chelsea next weekend.
The reverse fixture in November was an ill-tempered 3-3 draw that saw David Dunn sent off, Robinson bloodied and then winning the penalty that Yakubu hit for last-second equalizer. Today's match could get ugly all around as well. The stakes are just that high.

Wigan host Wolves next week, and they will likely still want a win to ensure their survival - especially if things don't go their way today. They could be important barn door picks, and I'll be watching closely. I have Maloney, Moses and Boyce and will be looking at Di Santo and Al Habsi.
