Martin Olsson could return to the Rovers side.

Olsson has been on the bench for Rovers’ last three games due to a niggling groin complaint but manager Steve Kean says the problem has settled down, while Bradley Orr (Achilles) will be assessed ahead of kick-off and fellow defender Grant Hanley (knee) remains sidelined.

Kean has confirmed striker David Goodwillie, who was given a community service order earlier this week for assaulting a man in Glasgow, will be part of the squad.

Wigan manager Roberto Martinez has a full squad to choose from.

Latics, who were the Premier League form side during April, know that a point at Ewood Park could keep them up depending on how other results go this weekend.

And Martinez makes the short trip with everyone to pick from, with striker Franco Di Santo free of a calf knock and defender Ronnie Stam (hamstring) also available.

Blackburn (from): Robinson, Orr, Dann, Martin Olsson, Lowe, Nzonzi, Pedersen, Hoilett, Dunn, Yakubu, Bunn, Givet, Formica, Petrovic, Rochina, Marcus Olsson, Goodwillie, Vukcevic, Henley, Modeste.

Wigan (from): Al Habsi, Kirkland, Pollitt, Caldwell, Boyce, Figueroa, Alcaraz, Gohuri, Crusat, Lopez, Beausejour, Watson, Moses, McArthur, McCarthy, McManaman, Jones, Gomez, Stam, Thomas, Diame, Maloney, Sammon, Di Santo, Rodallega.
