Blackburn v Burnley Preview, Championship, Saturday 9th March 2014

Blackburn Rovers were having a great time last month as form was going from strength to strength after seeing off Derby County with a draw and then beating Reading away from home. Rovers should really be pushing for promotion here yet see themselves six points away from Wigan who occupy that last play off position. A win here on Sunday however could turn that around as it would be an unexpected result giving Burnley’s current run of form.

Burnley are in exceptional form right now after beating and earning draws against the best since their last loss back in December against Middlesbrough. With their last game to 3rd placed Derby over with, the win would of filled them with the confidence to finish this season 2nd to Leicester City who are currently top. With eight points between them and The Foxes it will be a tough ask but certainly a challenge that would be accepted by the Burnley side and manager.

Blackburn v Burnley Team News

Blackburn Team News:

Blackburn Rovers will be hoping the clubs top goal scorer Jordan Rhodes enters this match very much up for it and in fine form, because it will take someone like the talented young Scotsman to earn a hard win against this Burnley side. Rhodes has currently scored sixteen goals in thirty two games which is exceptional for the striker.

Burnley Team News:

Ex Manchester United youth goalkeeper Tom Heaton may of finally found his home after being released by the English Champions, Cardiff City and Bristol Rovers before finally signing for Burnley on a free. The 27 year old has been in fine form this year and is set to make his 34th start come Sunday. Burnley strike partnership of Sam Vokes and Danny Ings is certainly lighting up the league with 35 goals between the pair and only 1 goal between them which is creating this exciting and friendly battle as the clubs top scorer.

Previous Average Goals Per Game Statistics

In the 53 games played in total between these two clubs we can see that there has been 188 goals scored which is giving us a very high average of 3.5 goals per game. But lets be realistic here as we can clearly see that in the last 5 head to heads that figure is way off at just 2.4 goals per game. The last three games have been 1 – 1 draws so I have to ask what are we to expect come Sunday lunchtime at Ewood Park?

Blackburn v Burnley Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

This Sunday lunchtime is set to be a great start to any lazy day watching football matches from anywhere around the globe. With the English Championship among the top exciting leagues, this fixture could see a lot of people fans and neutrals watching it on Sky Sports 1.

As for chances I personally feel it will be a tough game for Burnley although I do feel they will win the match over the ninety minutes. Blackburn Rovers are not to be over looked however as their form has also been good in recent weeks excluding their last result against Bolton Wanderers which see them on the receiving end of a 4 – 0 hammering away from home.

As for predictions for this game, I wont lie I feel as though it is a tough one and personally see both teams scoring on the day. You could go for both teams to score and either the draw or a Burnley win, although this time I will go for the latter. My second prediction will be for Burnley to win and Danny Ings to score on the day. You could also choose Sam Vokes instead if he takes your fancy on the day.
