Blackburn have no choice but to try and beat Wigan in order to keep their survival hopes alive, whereas the Latics would make a giant step towards keeping their Premiership status even with one point from Ewood Park.
While Rovers have spent much of the league campaign in the bottom three, they managed to climb out of the relegation zone with back to back wins over Wolverhampton and Sunderland in March.
However, Steve Kean’s side have since lost 6 of their next 7 league games and they now sit three points adrift of safety.
Even if their chances are now slim to none, Rovers still have something to hope for as the two victories could see them leapfrog Bolton and QPR in the standings.
Blackburn travel to Stamford Bridge on the final day of the season and with Chelsea likely to be preparing for the Champions League final at the time, Rovers could spring a surprise and bring all three points from London.
This may be a long shot, but odds of 15.00 (14/1) offered by William Hill on Blackburn to stay up could be worth a shot.
Martin Olsson should start after recovering from a groin injury, but Bradley Orr is injury doubt. Grant Hanley is ruled out for the season.
Probable starting line-up (4-2-3-1): Robinson – Orr, Dann, Lowe, Marcus Olsson – Dunn, Pedersen – Formica, Hoilett, Martin Olsson – Yakubu.
The whole of England is wondering why Wigan weren’t able to hit the ground running earlier in the season, as if that had happened, the Latics would probably now be sitting in top half of the standings.
Roberto Martinez’s side have been absolutely brilliant of late, beating the likes of Liverpool, Man Utd, Arsenal and Newcastle during the run of 5 wins in last 7 games that saw them finally climb away from the relegation zone.
Wigan should have no problems avoiding the drop seeing they play host to Wolves on the final day of the season, but, boosted by the 4-0 win over Newcastle, the Latics will try to finish the job at Ewood Park and they look a great bet at 2.90 (19/10) offered by BetVictor.
Roberto Martinez will have fully fit squad to choose from after Franco Di Santo and Ronnie Stam recovered from injuries, but he is unlikely to make changes to the side that hammered high-flying Newcastle.
Probable starting line-up (3-4-2-1): Al Habsi – Caldwell, Alcaraz, Figueroa – Boyce, McCarthy, McArthur, Beausejour – Moses, Maloney – Di Santo.
