Blackburn Rovers Preview – Will Rovers secure a rare home win?

Blackburn Rovers’ season looks to be ending with a whimper. Rovers have picked up just one win since a 1-0 home victory over Luton Town on 30th January. After a 2-0 triumph over Millwall at The Den in early March, the Blue and Whites have gone on to draw four and lose three of the following seven.

Blackburn did battle to a 2-2 draw against Cardiff City in South Wales last time out. They came from behind twice to earn a point at the Cardiff City Stadium, with Rovers’ second equaliser coming in injury time. Mowbray’s men should have won in Cardiff, as they hit the woodwork several times and dominated the second period.

Our betting prediction:
Blackburn win & both teams to score

(odds taken 1018 GMT, Thursday 15 April)

Blackburn have been poor since January, so Mowbray will be demanding a strong finish from his players. Can they claim a rare win on Friday night?

Derby County Preview – Can the Rams avoid a third straight defeat?

Derby County still have work to do in their battle for Championship survival. At the time of writing, Wayne Rooney’s men are in 20th place with 43 points to their name. They are clear of the bottom three, but 22nd-place Rotherham United still have games in hand.

Derby have struggled for wins of late, picking up just one Championship victory since six wins from eight in January and February. After a 2-0 home triumph over Luton on Good Friday, County have crashed to back-to-back defeats to Reading and Norwich City.

Derby could really do with maximum points having won just one of their ten in the Championship. However, they are the second favourites here, with the bookies pricing the away win at 11/4.


Blackburn Rovers vs Derby County Betting Advice

Back in September, Rovers were ruthless at Pride Park in a comprehensive 4-0 win. Blackburn stunned Derby with three goals in the first 15 minutes, with Bradley Johnson (2) and Tyrhys Dolan on target. Adam Armstrong added gloss to the scoreline with a fourth 13 minutes from time.


Key Facts – Blackburn Rovers vs Derby County Betting Tip

  • Blackburn have won three of the previous four meetings
  • Rovers have claimed just one Championship victory since January
  • Derby have won only one of their last ten league matches


Neither side are in good form, so this might not be a classic at Ewood Park. Nevertheless, Blackburn were unlucky not to have beaten Cardiff last weekend, and Mowbray’s boys will be hoping to do the league double over County on Friday.

Derby are in desperate need of a win, but we fancy Rovers to nick this one. You can get 11/4 for the hosts to win by one goal.

The prolific Adam Armstrong has had another stunning season at Ewood Park, scoring 21 Championship goals so far. Only Ivan Toney (29) and Teemu Pukki (25) have netted more. Armstrong, who bagged a brace in the Welsh capital last weekend, is available at evens to score anytime in this one.
