Both teams to score at Bournemouth vs Blackburn Rovers 5/6 for Saturday’s Championship showdown

Competition: Championship

Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 5/6 @ 888sport

Two sides who really find themselves battling it out at the top of the Championship table, Bournemouth will welcome Blackburn to the Vitality on Saturday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, throwing away the lead late on last weekend and having to settle for a point away at fellow automatic leaders Fulham, there is no doubt that Bournemouth will be seeking a boost here. Although the Cherries might have gained plenty of plaudits after bringing Scott Parker to the Vitality over the summer, it appears that they are in the midst of a recent wobble. Although the south coast outfit might still find themselves sat in pole position to book a Premier League return this season, Bournemouth have failed to win any of their four Championship contests since returning from November’s international break. With their recent blip highlighted by a shock 3-2 defeat away at relegation scrappers Derby, the former Fulham boss knows that his side must bring an end to their sluggish month spell.

As for the visitors, while Bournemouth might be enduring a recent wobble, the same cannot be said for a high-flying Blackburn squad. Although Tony Mowbray’s men had to settle for a sluggish bottom-half finish last season, it is no secret that the Rovers have their sights set on clinching a play-off spot this time around. Opening up this weekend’s fixtures sat fourth in the table, the former West Brom boss has seen his side claim 13 points from their last five Championship contests. With their stellar run of form highlighted by a 4-0 romp against Peterborough last month, some around Ewood Park might be smelling a chance on the south coast here. In a matchup that famously produces a lively affair, we’re backing both teams to find the net here.
