Blackburn to win 2-1 (10/1)

Blackburn Rovers have suffered a huge collapse over recent months.

Tony Mowbray’s side will miss out on the play-offs having won just three times in their last 16 matches.

However, their last away outing saw them beat Preston 3-0 and on Saturday they face a struggling Birmingham City side.

The Blues have lost three of their last five matches.

Ben Brereton Díaz to score first (7/2)

Brereton Díaz has had an excellent season for Blackburn in front of goal.

Despite missing several months through injury, the forward has netted 21 times for Rovers this season.

He will be looking to finish the season with a bang and put himself back in the shop window.

Match preview: Birmingham City vs Blackburn Rovers

Birmingham City have had a truly shocking campaign.

The Blues head into the final day of the season 20th in the table.

They look set to remain there too with Hull and Cardiff three points ahead of them and both with far superior goal differences.

Lee Bowyer’s side have now won just once in their last nine matches.

The Midlands club drew 1-1 with Cardiff City last Saturday.

Blackburn Rovers’ play-off hopes are over

Several months back, Blackburn Rovers look like a side destined for the play-offs.

However, a major collapse has seen them drop into 9th place.

Now, heading into the final day of the season, their promotion hopes are over.

Just three wins in their last 16 matches is the type of form which has seen them miss out.

Rovers were beaten 3-0 at home by Bournemouth last Saturday which proved to be the final nail in the coffin.
