Blackburn Rovers and Hartlepool United go head-to-head at Ewood Park on Wednesday in first-round EFL Cup action. Jon Dahl Tomasson’s Rovers are the only team in the EFL Championship with a 100% record after two games, and the home side will be eager to make it three wins in three this Wednesday. Hartlepool have taken one point and failed to score in their opening two EFL League Two games. We have the latest odds and best tips in our betting preview.

Blackburn Rovers Preview – Tomasson to keep up 100% record?

Blackburn Rovers were in the promotion mix for large chunks of the 2021-22 season. However, they fell short in the end, and Tony Mowbray opted to leave Ewood Park in the summer. Former Newcastle United & AC Milan striker Jon Dahl Tomasson took over in June.

Tomasson has got off to a stunning start, as Rovers sit proudly at the top of the Championship table after two wins out of two. On matchday one, Lewis Travis netted in a 1-0 win over Queens Park Rangers. The Blue and Whites then stunned Swansea City last weekend, leaving South Wales with a 3-0 success thanks to efforts from Sammie Szmodics, Ben Brereton Diaz and Travis.

Our betting prediction:
Blackburn to keep a clean sheet

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1121 GMT, Tuesday 9 August)

Blackburn will have one eye on this weekend’s mouth-watering matchup against West Bromwich Albion. However, they will be looking for a comfortable cup win before that one. The home side are the clear favourites at 2/5.

Hartlepool United Preview – Pools to crash to another defeat?

Paul Hartley has started life at Hartlepool United with a draw and a defeat from his opening two League Two matches in charge. Pools kicked off their campaign with a bad 4-0 away reverse at Walsall.

Hartlepool restored some pride last weekend, holding Wimbledon to a 0-0 draw at The Suit Direct Stadium. However, they have yet to score a goal under their new boss.

Blackburn Rovers vs Hartlepool United Betting Advice

These two clubs have been around for a very long time, but this will be just the third meeting between Blackburn and Hartlepool. They met in the League Cup way back in 1975. United won 2-1 away from home and held Rovers to a 1-1 draw on home turf.


Key Facts – Blackburn Rovers vs Hartlepool United Betting Tip

  • Blackburn are top of the Championship table
  • Hartlepool have yet to score a goal this season
  • This will be the first meeting between the pair since 1975


Blackburn have made a superb start to their Championship campaign and were particularly impressive at Swansea last time out. Tomasson is likely to chop and change his team, but we fancy Rovers to secure a comfortable cup win. They have kept two clean sheets so far, and you can get 6/5 for Blackburn to win to nil on Wednesday.

The home side will be looking to dominate this cup tie from start to finish. Rovers have been leading at the break in both wins thus far, and we like the look of evens for the hosts to be winning at half time and full time here.
