Blackburn Rovers Preview – Can Rovers return to winning ways on home soil?

Jon Dahl Tomasson made a superb start to life at Blackburn Rovers, guiding the Blue and Whites to four straight league and cup wins. However, they have gone off the boil of late, losing four of their past five Championship games.

After a trio of defeats, Blackburn returned to winning ways with a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Blackpool at Bloomfield Road. However, they followed that up with a disappointing 3-2 home reverse to Bristol City last time out.
