Blackburn Rovers Preview – Can the Blue and Whites upset the league leaders?

Tony Mowbray’s Blackburn Rovers have blown hot and cold this season. However, when they are good, Rovers are very, very good. The Blue and Whites have scored a staggering 16 goals in seven league games, winning 5-0 and 4-0 (twice).

After drawing 0-0 at home with Cardiff City before losing 1-0 to Nottingham Forest at Ewood Park and 3-1 to Watford at Vicarage Road, Blackburn were back to their blistering best against Coventry City last weekend. Goals from Adam Armstrong (2), Harvey Elliott and Sam Gallagher gave them a resounding 4-0 win at St Andrew’s Trillion Trophy Stadium in Birmingham.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1258 GMT, Monday 26 October)

Blackburn are capable of beating any team in the Championship these days, although they are certainly one of the most unpredictable sides in the division. Having failed to win any their last two at home, can Mowbray’s men get the better of the league leaders at Ewood Park on Tuesday? The home win is priced at evens.

Reading Preview – Will the Royals maintain unbeaten start?

Veljko Paunovic’s Reading have without doubt been the surprise package in the Championship this season. Not many would have had the Royals down as promotion candidates in their pre-season predictions, but Paunovic has made a stunning start at the Madejski Stadium.

Reading are riding high at the top of the Championship table at present, racking up an incredible 19 points from 21 on offer. The Berkshire club have won six and drawn one of seven. So far, the Royals have seen off Derby County, Barnsley, Cardiff City, Watford, Wycombe Wanderers and Rotherham United.

Reading are three points clear at the top of the pile in England’s second tier, and Paunovic would love to see his side maintain or extend that gap in midweek. Having said that, a draw would not be a disastrous result for the leaders.


Blackburn Rovers vs Reading Betting Advice

When these two sides met at Ewood Park in the Championship back in July, Blackburn edged a seven-goal thriller. Sam Gallagher’s late goal gave Rovers a 4-3 win. At the Madejski Stadium in the reverse game, Blackburn won 2-1 thanks to goals from Adam Armstrong and Bradley Dack.


Key Facts – Blackburn Rovers vs Reading Betting Tip

  • Blackburn did the double over Reading last term, scoring six times along the way
  • Reading are top of the table, winning six and drawing one of seven
  • Rovers are the top scorers in the division having netted 16 times so far


These two teams have been involved in some high-scoring meetings of late, and we could be in for another goal fest at Ewood Park in midweek. However, we can see the pair cancelling each another out in Lancashire. Back the draw and over 3.5 goals at the eye-opening price of 11/1.

Blackburn’s Armstrong has been outstanding so far this season. The 23-year-old has already netted eight league and cup goals. Take a punt on the Rovers hitman to strike first on Tuesday at 15/4.
