Blackburn Rovers Prediction

Blackburn Rovers have a great chance to make it three league wins on the trot in the Championship when they play host to rock bottom club, Ipswich Town at Ewood Park this Saturday following recent back-to-back victories against West Brom and Millwall respectively.

These recent wins would have brought welcome relief to Blackburn manager Tony Mowbray as his side had previously endured a miserable three-game losing streak with defeats to Norwich City, Leeds United and Sheffield United, losing 1-0, 3-2 and 3-0 respectively.

However, with a fairly decent home record of 5-6-2 18/15 under their belts so far this season, Rovers will be confident they can grab another valuable three points here which could lift them up into the top half of the Championship.

Blackburn have suffered just one defeat from their last seven matches at home which was a 1-0 loss to promotion chasing 2nd placed Norwich City, but wins over Sheffield Wednesday and West Brom in recent weeks should give them plenty of confidence here.


Key-Facts – Blackburn Rovers v Ipswich Town

  • Blackburn have lost just once in their last 7 matches at Ewood Park
  • Ipswich Town possess the worst defensive record away from home in the Championship
  • Ipswich have lost their last four away matches all to nil


Ipswich Town Prediction

Ipswich Town ended their own run of three league defeats on the trot in the Championship last weekend when they recorded what could be a vital 1-0 home win over Rotherham United at Portman Road, and they’ll now make the trip up to Lancashire in a more positive frame of mind I daresay.

The appointment of former Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert brought a wave of anticipation and renewed confidence to the club but the results have failed to materialise as the Tractor Boys have gained just two league wins from his 13 matches in charge to date and they still remain firmly rooted to the bottom of the Championship.

It’s ironic that Lambert actually enjoyed his most successful spell as a manager at Ipswich’s bitter rivals, Norwich City during 2009-2012, and even though he’s been assured of his job at Ipswich even if they get relegated, another few defeats could see fan pressure intensify.

Ipswich Town possess a poor away record of 1-2-10 8/27 which includes losing their last four matches on the trot away from home.

Betting Tips Verdict

Blackburn Rovers won’t get a better chance to add to their points tally here against a poor Ipswich Town outfit who have shipped 27 goals on the road so far this season.
