Blackburn Rovers Preview – Will Mowbray’s men make home advantage count?

Tony Mowbray’s Blackburn Rovers were in patchy form before the league temporarily stopped back in March. After three successive draws, Rovers were beaten 3-0 by Derby County at Pride Park in their last outing.

They have been tough to beat in 2020, however, losing only two Championship matches since a 3-2 defeat at Nottingham Forest on New Year’s Day. Overall, Blackburn have won 14, drawn 11 and lost 12 of 37 league fixtures.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 2010 GMT, Thursday 18 June)

Only three teams have left Ewood Park with maximum points this season, with just Charlton Athletic, Luton Town and Fulham winning on their patch. Since that defeat to Luton in September, Rovers have won six, drawn seven and lost only once at home.

Blackburn are one of many chasing down a play-off spot in this season’s Championship. Before the campaign gets back up and running, the Blue and Whites are three points away from sixth-place Preston North End. Three points could be vital this Saturday.

Bristol City Preview – Can the Robins return to action with a big three points?

Bristol City are also one of the chasing pack, as Lee Johnson’s boys are just a point behind Preston. The Robins have had a solid season in the second tier so far, picking up a respectable 55 points from 37 fixtures.

Bristol City were in poor form before the enforced break, though, winning only one of seven in the Championship. During that run, Birmingham City, Leeds United, West Bromwich Albion and Huddersfield Town all got the better of the Robins. However, after three losses on the spin, City picked up back-to-back 1-1 draws with Millwall and Fulham.

After narrow wins over Reading and Queens Park Rangers, the Bristol club have taken just one point from their last three fixtures on the road. Can Johnson’s troops get back on track with a big three points on their travels at the weekend?


Blackburn Rovers vs Bristol City Betting Advice

Only two points separate the pair in the current Championship table, and these two sides are well matched on paper. After one win in seven, the Robins will be desperate to get back to action with a win, especially as Blackburn will leapfrog them with three points of their own.


Key Facts – Blackburn Rovers vs Bristol City Betting Tip

  • Only three teams have won at Ewood Park this season
  • Bristol City have won just one of their previous seven in the Championship
  • These two play-off chasers are separated in the table by just two points


In the reverse fixture at Ashton Gate in December 2019, Blackburn put on the perfect away performance to leave with all three points. Bradley Johnson’s early strike sent them on their way, with Adam Armstrong doubling Rovers’ advantage late on.

Although this could be close on the scoreline, Blackburn will fancy their chances of doing the league double over Bristol City on Saturday. Check out the tempting price of 3/1 for the home team to win by one goal.
