Blackburn Rovers Preview – Can Tomasson’s troops keep up 100% record?

Jon Dahl Tomasson has made an excellent start to life as Blackburn Rovers boss. The former Newcastle United & AC Milan striker took over at Ewood Park from the long-serving Tony Mowbray in the summer.

Blackburn kicked off their Championship campaign with a hard-fought 1-0 win over Queens Park Rangers. Rovers followed that up with an impressive 3-0 victory against Swansea City in South Wales last weekend. Tomasson’s men made it three wins from three with a convincing 4-0 home triumph over Hartlepool United in the first round of the EFL Cup in midweek.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score – No

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 0827 GMT, Saturday 13 August)

Victory on Sunday will have their Championship rivals really start to take notice. The home win is generously priced at 7/4.

West Bromwich Albion Preview – Will the Baggies stay unbeaten?

Steve Bruce’s West Bromwich Albion have drawn their opening two league fixtures, though the Baggies are unbeaten in three league and cup matches thus far. In game one, Albion came from behind to draw 1-1 with Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium.

West Brom also drew their second match 1-1, this time against Watford at The Hawthorns. They did pick up a win in the first round of the EFL Cup against Championship opposition on Thursday, as Karlan Grant’s goal gave the Baggies a 1-0 victory over Paul Heckingbottom’s Sheffield United.

Blackburn Rovers vs West Bromwich Albion Betting Advice

West Brom are unbeaten against Blackburn in four, winning two and drawing two. In this fixture last term, Alex Mowatt and Matt Phillips scored in a 2-1 Albion victory. The reverse game at The Hawthorns ended in an uneventful 0-0 draw.

Blackburn’s last win over the Midlands outfit came in January 2019 – Charlie Mulgrew and Bradley Dack were the scorers in a 2-1 Rovers success at Ewood Park in that one.


Key Facts – Blackburn Rovers vs West Bromwich Albion Betting Tip

  • Blackburn are the early leaders of the Championship
  • West Brom have drawn both league matches 1-1
  • Rovers have yet to concede a goal this term


Blackburn have won three out of three under Tomasson, scoring eight and conceding none. However, this will be their toughest challenge yet, and we fancy West Brom to leave Lancashire with all three points. Back the away side to prevail at the decent odds of 8/5.

Karlan Grant has looked sharp at the start of this season, scoring in each of his last two games. The former Huddersfield Town man is priced at 11/2 to net the opening goal at Ewood Park.
