Blackburn have just two wins in their last 11 matches.
However, at home to a struggling Blackpool side, Tony Mowbray’s team should be good enough.
The Seasiders have failed to score in just 17 percent of their away games this season, so goals from both teams are likely.
Brereton Díaz made his long-awaited return from injury on Saturday netting 20 times.
The striker had been enjoying a strong season before the injury.
He will now be hoping to return from injury and get Rovers back into the top six.
Match preview: Blackburn Rovers vs Blackpool
Blackburn were held to a 2-2 draw with Coventry on Saturday with the hosts snatching a late equaliser.
Mowbray’s team were denied a win deep in stoppage time as Viktor Gyökeres netted for Coventry.
The striker scored in the 99th minute to stop Blackburn from taking all three points.
Rovers have now won just twice in their last 12 and their playoff hopes are starting to fade.
The loss of Ben Brereton Diaz to injury has been a massive blow for them.

The Seasiders were beaten away at Preston having also suffered a defeat against Nottingham Forest.
Neil Critchley’s side lost 1-0 against their rivals with Cameron Archer scoring the only goal in stoppage time in the first-half.
