After a slow start to the season, Rovers have been excellent and they have plenty of players who wouldn’t look out of place in the Championship. They don’t lose often but they have dropped here against both Oldham and Northampton. Wigan are tough to beat. They’ve conceded just 18 goals this season and are being touted as the “Juventus of League One” thanks to their no-nonsense back-line.
