Blackburn Rovers Preview – Blue and Whites to make it three wins on the spin?

Blackburn Rovers have made a good start to their season, winning two of their opening three in the Championship. Rovers started their 2020-21 campaign with a 3-2 Carabao Cup victory over Doncaster Rovers. They were then beaten by the same scoreline at Bournemouth on the opening weekend of the Championship season.

Blackburn’s season has taken off since their narrow defeat at Newcastle United in the EFL Cup. Tony Mowbray’s men have won their last two in the Championship, seeing off Wycombe Wanderers 5-0 and Derby County 4-0. Rovers were 3-0 up after just 15 minutes at Pride Park last weekend.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 0615 GMT, Friday 2 September)

Blackburn were in the play-off picture for large chunks of last season but fell away at the end. Can Mowbray’s troops sustain a promotion challenge this time around?

Cardiff City Preview – Can the Bluebirds bounce back with a positive result?

Neil Harris did a fine job at the Cardiff City Stadium last season, guiding the Bluebirds to fifth place and a spot in the play-offs. Unfortunately for the Welsh side, they were beaten by Fulham in the semi-finals.

Cardiff have made a poor start to this campaign, though. After falling to a heavy 3-0 defeat at Northampton Town in the first round of the EFL Cup, City got their Championship season going with a poor 2-0 home loss to Sheffield Wednesday. However, two Kieffer Moore goals gave them a 2-0 win at Nottingham Forest on matchday two.

Blackburn are the team in form, but Cardiff will be desperate to secure a positive result at Ewood Park having lost two of their opening three league matches. This is a tough one to call, so our money is going on the draw. The 1-1 draw is nicely priced at 21/4 with Unibet.
