Blackburn Rovers take a slender lead into the break against Wigan Athletic at the DW Stadium.

Blackburn Rovers are beating Wigan Athletic 1-0 at half time in the Championship.

Rovers were ahead after only eight minutes when Tommy Spurr collected Scott Carson's drop to fire home.

Wigan's first effort of the afternoon came when James McArthur fired wide after good build-up play from Jean Beausejour.

Ben Watson then inadvertently kicked the ball out for a corner to Blackburn as he tried to play it back to Carson.

James McClean had a chance from a 30-yard free kick but he struck the wall before hitting the rebound down the throat of Jake Kean in the away goal.

Rovers were reduced to 10 men, however, when Grant Hanley was sent off for striking Nick Powell in the face.

Powell then had a chance to level the scored but headed into Kean's hands.
