Blackburn Rovers Preview – Blue and Whites to return to winning ways?

Blackburn Rovers were beginning to find form again, winning four and drawing three of seven to fire themselves back up the Championship table. However, since a 2-1 home win over Millwall, Rovers have taken just one point from their last three.

Blackburn held high-flying Brentford to a 2-2 draw at the Brentford Community Stadium on December 5th but have gone on to lose back-to-back games since. The Blue and Whites conceded late to lose 1-0 at Ashton Gate before a 2-1 home defeat to Championship leaders Norwich City last time out.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score – No

(odds taken 1645 GMT, Tuesday 15 December)

Blackburn are not an easy nut to crack at Ewood Park. In fact, they had taken ten points from 12 on offer at home before last Saturday’s loss to Norwich. Can they hit back with a vital victory on their own patch in midweek?

Rotherham United Preview – Seventh away reverse on the spin for the Millers?

Rotherham United were promoted from EFL League One as runners-up last term. Naturally, they have found it tough going in the second tier so far, winning just four of their opening 18 Championship games.

Nevertheless, last time out, Paul Warne’s men secured a massive win over high-flying Bristol City at the New York Stadium. Matt Crooks’ goal after just four minutes put the Millers a goal up before Michael Smith doubled their advantage four minutes before the break. Prior to that, United had gone six games without a win, losing five and drawing one.

When Rotherham were last in the Championship, they took four points from their two meetings with Blackburn.

Key Facts – Blackburn Rovers vs Rotherham United Betting Tip

  • Before last weekend’s loss to Norwich, Blackburn had won three and drawn one of four home games
  • Rotherham have lost their last six away from home in the Championship
  • Last Saturday’s victory was the Millers’ first three points since November 7th


Rotherham have not won away from home since beating Wycombe Wanderers at Adams Park on the opening weekend of the Championship season. Blackburn have lost their last two, but Mowbray’s men should make home advantage count on Wednesday. Odds of 7/5 for the hosts to be winning at half time and full time are too good to turn down.

Adam Armstrong has netted a staggering 14 Championship goals already this season, with only Brentford’s Ivan Toney scoring more so far. Take a punt on Armstrong to open the scoring in this one at 5/2.
