These two mid table sides meet with both sets of fans expecting a push for promotion. Henning Berg has endured a torrid start to his tenure at Blackburn, yet to claim his first home win at Ewood Park.
Berg apologised this week for his side’s poor form. The team were booed off after last week’s 4-1 loss at home to Cardiff City and now sit 13th in the Championship.
Blackpool, under new boss Michael Appleton, lie two places above their Northern neighbours in 11th place. The Seasiders held high-flying Crystal Palace last weekend in a thrilling 2-2 draw. They’ll be hoping to claim all 3 points against an out-of-sorts Blackburn Rovers.
Undefeated in 7, Blackpool have proved to be a difficult side to beat. However 5 of these 7 games have ended as a score draw. Their fans will hope they can claim more victories so they can push for a return to the Premiership.
Jordan Rhodes and Joshua King are likely to lead the line for Blackburn. On loan Aston Villa man Nathan Delfouneso will be Blackpool’s main hope for goals, although Thomas Ince is always a goal threat.
Expect goals on both sides as each team’s back line have been questioned in recent weeks. Blackpool haven’t kept a clean sheet in 6 whilst Blackburn haven’t shut the opposition out in 8.
Over 2.5 goals at 8/11 seems like a relatively safe bet in what should be a thrilling North-Western encounter. Their last duel ended 2-2 in the Premier league almost 2 years ago.
