Blackburn Rovers midfielder Corry Evans says he is back to full fitness after an ankle injury and ready to help the club improve their recent form.

Tony Mowbray’s men have slipped down to sixth in the League One table after winning just two of their last five matches in all competitions.

A defeat to Oldham in the league unsettled them for a short while, before they responded with a draw against Plymouth and a win against Portsmouth. Evans has missed the club’s last four league games but he had been playing with an ankle injury.

The 27-year-old stepped off the bench against Pompey but he insists he feels ‘brand new’ ahead of the clash with Wigan.

The Latics are sitting pretty at the top of the table and Evans is relishing the chance to get one over on the former Championship side.

He told the Lancashire Telegraph: “I was playing for about a month with a niggle on my ankle and I had some excess fluid in there which caused me some discomfort.

“I took a knock on it while I was away in the international break and have given myself some time to rest for a week or so and had an injection to clear things up.

“It’s back to normal and I feel brand new. They (Wigan) are doing well, scoring a lot of goals and winning a lot of matches and rightfully so they are at the top of the league.”

Wigan are 1.85 favourites to win, the draw is 3.50, while Blackburn are priced at odds of 4.20 to win all three points.
