I seem to remember a fair bit of gloating from both teams'fans when we descended into League 1 but obviously we will exhibit a lot more class than that if both or either of these local rivals gets relegated and we get promoted. Or not.

Maybe we'll just laugh at them in the time honoured tradition?

Wigan are seriously off the pace at seven points from safety with 5 to play. They have a history of saving themselves at the death but it may be a step too far for them this season. Now Rovers have slipped to 4 points and big GD from safety.

Heart breaking isn't it?

Plenty of points still to play for but I can't see how either team is going to claw back the gap to Bristol City - although with Forest and Burton just a point ahead of Bristol, it's a big target to aim for. Still, both Lancashire clubs going down IMO.

Is there any hope for either team?

Only decent things to come out of Wigan are Uncle Joe's Mint Balls.
Blackburn became the first town to undertake the mass fingerprinting of people following a murder in 1948. Must have taken ages. And ages.

Just looked at the fixtures and it seems Rovers have a decent chance to pull it back in their next two "six pointer" games against relegation rivals Forest (A) and Bristol City (H). If they can win those all they have left is 3 midtable sides to play (Wolves A, Villa H and Brentford A) 

A chance if Mowbray can pull it together.

Wigan on the other hand have a much tougher run in: Barnsley H, Brighton A, Cardiff H, Reading A, Leeds H. I think they're already gone.

Whilst its easy to gloat about them- I'd actually like both of them to stay up so we can take 6 points off both of them next season. They're local derbies and its always nicer to beat your neighbours than more distant clubs
Beating them would mean we have bragging rights for longer.

Wigan at home to Barnsley tonight. 
Although Wigan are 7 points and GD away from safety, they have a reasonable chance against mid-table Bansley. ex Manure's Nick Powell could make his return to the team although our own Andy Kellett is injured along with Omar Bogle and Will Grigg. 

Must win obviously - and I think they have a chance to overtake Rovers tonight. Their next match is away at Brighton so they'll be desperate to get 3 points.

Rovers have a bottom of the table clash with Forest tomorrow. Could Clough finish them off?

Wigan come back from 2 down to win 3-2,with an 11 minute hat trick from Nick Powell.

Unbelievable! Pressure back on Rovers today. Both teams 4 points off safety now although Wigan have played a game more. Crucially Bristol City have a winnable game at home to QPR and Burton travel to Brum who have been up and down under Zola.

Rovers win away at Forest - how is that even possible?

Rovers season on the line today. Home tie against Bristol City is a real six pointer and a win could take them out of the drop zone with Burton v Brum perhaps having an effect. Somewhat tougher for Wigan away at Brighton...

HT. Rovers and Wigan both losing. Burton and Bristol winning. Forest drawing. Not looking great for our neighbours.

Wigan lose again but Rovers throw the kitchen sink at it and salvage a draw. Now only a point behind Forest so the big question is whether or not Zach Clough could end up back in League 1 whilst we are promoted?

Zola has resigned as Blues manager the shithouse. Can see them going down and Blackburn surviving.

Yeah Brum are in freefall although they've appointed 'Arry to sort them out.

That said they've got 3 tough fixtures: Villa in the derby, Huddersfield and a six pointer against Bristol so they could well open the door for Rovers.

After both Wigan and Rovers drew, if Brum get anything from Villa they're both f****d. We really could be a division above them both next year.

Wigan are gone, assuming we do the business next week then I would prefer a trip to Deadwood than Birmingham tbh.

Not quite but they are working on it. I have a sneaking suspicion that Rovers will save themselves now that Villa have beaten 'Arry's Brum (narrowly).
Brum have to play Huddersfield and Bristol City - both tough games but despite being 2 points ahead of Rovers have a much worse GD so they need points which they aren't likely to get.
Rovers have two games against mid table teams so might well nick a win and that might be enough.
