Blackburn Rovers Prediction

Blackburn have been in free-fall mode for a while now as the hosts have lost eight of their last 10 matches overall in the Championship with only a 2-2 draw at Birmingham City and a long-awaited 3-0 home win against Wigan Athletic, the rare highlights in what has been a difficult and disappointing sequence of results.

Having been promoted from League One at the end of last season, this campaign was always going to be one of consolidation for Blackburn Rovers under manager, Tony Mowbray, but with just one defeat from their first 10 matches of the new Championship season, the hosts may have been wishing for more at this stage.

Blackburn’s home record stands at 8-6-5 26/18 and they come into this clash having recorded a 3-0 win over Wigan which ended a three-match losing streak against the likes of Bristol City, Mowbray’s former club, Middlesbrough and Preston North End.

Midfielder Dack (10 goals) and forward Graham (13 goals) continue to be Blackburn’s most likely outlets for goals, while at the back, Rovers have managed to keep six clean sheets on home turf to date.

 

Key-Facts – Blackburn Rovers v Stoke City

  • Blackburn Rovers have kept 6 clean sheets at home this season
  • Stoke City are without an away win from their last 11 trips
  • Stoke have also failed to score in 7 of their 19 away matches so far this season

 

Stoke City Prediction

Stoke City are most definitely the draw specialists in the Championship as The Potters have drawn their last four matches in the second tier 0-0, amidst a total of 18 stalemates from their total of 39 matches played this season which is an incredible draw ratio.

Recent 0-0 stalemates with QPR, Derby County, Reading and Sheffield Wednesday make them a very possible candidate for another draw at Blackburn Rovers today, but they do bring an unbeaten eight match sequence into this encounter at Ewood Park.

Within these last eight matches though, seven have been draws, so we’ll definitely want to have the draw on our side when making a prediction for this clash. Stoke’s results away from home though indicate that the visitors seem highly unlikely to walk away with all three points here.

The Potters’ away record stands at a draw-laden 2-12-5 17/24 which includes going 11 away matches without a win, a run that includes no fewer than 8 stalemates within this sequence.

Stoke have also failed to score in 7 of their 19 away matches so far this season and therefore may struggle to find the back of the net again away at Blackburn Rovers this Saturday.

Betting Tips Verdict

Blackburn’s results have been poor of late but they look the better equipped to get something from this clash.
