Match of the Day 2 - 2008/09 - 26/04/2009

Adrian Chiles presents highlights of two Premier League fixtures, with Arsenal hosting Middlesbrough and Blackburn Rovers hosting Wigan Athletic. The difference in their league positions would suggest a comfortable home win for Arsenal, but the Teesiders have proved surprisingly stubborn opponents against the Gunners in recent seasons. Wigan won 3-0 when the sides met in December 2008 - Paul Ince's last game in charge of Rovers before being sacked days later. With Blackburn looking tougher since the arrival of Sam Allardyce, Wigan boss Steve Bruce can anticipate a greater challenge in this match.
