Blackburn Rovers Preview – Mowbray’s men to extend unbeaten run to four?

Ahead of this round of Championship fixtures, Blackburn Rovers are still very much in the mix for promotion. Tony Mowbray’s troops have gone under the radar this season, but their promotion rivals are starting to take notice, as Rovers are just five points adrift of sixth in eighth place.

Blackburn nearly picked up a huge win at Brentford last week. Rovers were superb for an hour, but the Bees struck back with two late goals to draw 2-2. Prior to that one, Blackburn had picked up back-to-back wins, beating Hull City 3-0 at Ewood Park and Charlton Athletic 2-0 at The Valley.

Our betting prediction:
Blackburn to win both halves

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1345 GMT, Tuesday 25 February)

Fulham are the only team to have won at Ewood Park since September. Since losing to Luton Town, Blackburn have won six, drawn four and lost only one of their following 11 Championship matches on their own patch.

After losing ground in the hunt for the top six last week, Mowbray’s side will be desperate to return to winning ways on Wednesday. The home team are priced at 11/8 to get the victory.

Stoke City Preview – Can the Potters build on last weekend’s home win?

Stoke City put in an excellent performance against play-off chasing Cardiff City last weekend. A Callum Paterson own goal put them a goal up after 25 minutes, with Joe Allen bundling in a second with 18 minutes to go. In the end, the Potters ran out comfortable and deserved 2-0 winners over the Bluebirds.

That was just what the doctor ordered for Stoke after losses to Preston North End and Queens Park Rangers. They have really struggled on the road this season, losing 11 times already. In fact, only bottom club Luton have suffered more away defeats (15) up until now.
