Blackburn Rovers Preview – Mowbray’s men to return to winning ways?

Blackburn Rovers are in mid-table at Christmas, collecting a respectable 28 points from 20 games. Rovers are five points adrift of the play-offs and 12 points clear of the bottom three. Overall, Blackburn have won eight, lost eight and drew four.

Tony Mowbray’s men have blown hot and cold this season. Before a run of three defeats in four, the Blue and Whites went seven games undefeated, winning four and drawing three. However, they have taken just three points from the last 12 on offer.

Our betting prediction:
Blackburn to win to nil

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 0731 GMT, Friday 25 December)

Rovers are a tough nut to crack at Ewood Park. Since back-to-back home defeats to Nottingham Forest and Reading in October, Blackburn have lost just one of six on home turf. The Lancashire side have won four of their previous five at Ewood Park, but can Rovers make home advantage count on Boxing Day?

Sheffield Wednesday Preview – 11th league loss for the Owls?

After last weekend’s results, Sheffield Wednesday moved off the foot of the Championship table for the first time this season. With Wycombe Wanderers only drawing, Wednesday’s 1-0 home victory over Coventry City put the Owls ahead of the Chairboys on goal difference.

Tony Pulis had a tough start to life at Hillsborough, failing to win any of his opening eight games in charge. Before last Saturday’s crucial home win over the Sky Blues, Sheffield Wednesday had lost four in a row.

The Sheffield club have been woeful away from home in recent months, losing six and drawing one of their last seven away league games. The Owls have not won on the road in the Championship since a 1-0 triumph at St Andrew’s Trillion Trophy Stadium on October 17th. Can they return to the Steel City with a positive result?


Blackburn Rovers vs Sheffield Wednesday Betting Advice

Back in January, Blackburn left Hillsborough with a thumping 5-0 win. Former Tottenham Hotspur man Lewis Holtby was the hero in that one, netting a brace. Rovers also won the reverse fixture at Ewood Park, with late goals from Tosin Adarabioyo and John Buckley giving the Blue and Whites a dramatic 2-1 home win.


Key Facts – Blackburn Rovers vs Sheffield Wednesday Betting Tip

  • Blackburn have won four of their previous five at Ewood Park
  • Wednesday have taken just one point from their last seven away matches
  • Rovers have picked up three wins from their past four meetings with the Owls


With Sheffield Wednesday so poor on the road, while Blackburn have been strong at Ewood Park in recent weeks, we can only see one winner here. We fancy Rovers to pick up a comfortable home victory on Boxing Day. Back Blackburn to be winning at half time and full time at 7/4.

Only Brentford’s Ivan Toney has netted more Championship goals this term than the prolific Adam Armstrong. Check out the tempting odds of 15/4 for Blackburn’s main man to score two or more goals in this one.
