Blackburn Rovers are without doubt the form team in the EFL Championship right now. After six straight wins, Rovers have moved to within four points of leaders Bournemouth. Tony Mowbray’s men will be looking for seven victories on the bounce when Huddersfield Town visit Ewood Park on Sunday. The Terriers are also in good form, but Blackburn are the odds-on favourites with the bookies. Read our in-depth betting preview for the latest odds and top tips.

Blackburn Rovers Preview – Seven on the spin for Mowbray’s men?

Tony Mowbray’s Blackburn Rovers have been in staggering form in recent months. They head into 2022 having won nine of their last 11 in the Championship. They have gone from mid-table mediocracy to genuine title contenders.

Blackburn are unbeaten since suffering a huge 7-0 home loss to Fulham two months back. They have gone on to take 22 points from a possible 24 and win six in a row. Last Wednesday, the Blue and Whites edged past Barnsley at Ewood Park.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score
5/6

(odds taken 1134 GMT, Saturday 1 January)

 
At the time of writing, Blackburn are in third spot on 45 points, level with second-place Fulham and four points adrift of leaders Bournemouth. Can they keep up with the pace and make it seven wins on the bounce this Sunday?

Huddersfield Town Preview – Can the in-form Terriers cause an upset?

Carlos Corberan’s Huddersfield Town have punched above their weight this season. Many had them down to struggle before a ball was kicked, but the Terriers find themselves in the play-off places at the halfway stage. Overall, Town have won 11, lost eight and drawn six.

Since back-to-back defeats to Queens Park Rangers and Middlesbrough in late November, Huddersfield have gone five games unbeaten. They drew with Barnsley and Coventry City before securing successive wins over Bristol City, Blackpool and Nottingham Forest.

Huddersfield could be the dark horse in the race for the play-offs this season. They have previous experience of securing promotion to the Premier League via that route. Can Corberan’s troops send out a real signal of intent and make it four wins on the bounce in this one?
