Market: Blackburn Rovers win
Odds: 1/1 @ Bet 365
Dreaming of mounting what would be a shock play-off charge, a high-flying Blackburn will welcome Derby to Ewood Park on Saturday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, putting in another eye-catching display and picking up a 2-1 win away at Stoke last weekend, Blackburn find themselves enjoying what has been a stellar resurge. Winning each of their last three matches on the bounce and the mood around Ewood Park starting to soar, it will undoubtedly be their continued success on home soil most impressing Head Coach Tony Mowbray. Also enjoying a three-match winning run in front of their own supporters, the Lancashire outfit are unbeaten in their last five matches at Ewood Park, a run that stems back to the 28th of September.
As for the visitors, throwing away a one-goal lead against QPR last weekend, Derby are still drastically struggling to adjust to life under former PSV boss Phillip Cocu. Someway off mounting any kind of play-off charge, fans around Pride Park will be hugely concerned by their side’s issues on the road. Remarkably, the Whites have lost each of their last four matches on the road, including a 3-0 hammering away at Fulham in their last appearance outside of Derby. Even more worrying for Saturday’s guests, last year’s play-off finalists have failed to record a single strike in any of their four defeats on the road.
