Match preview

The action in the 2nd tier of English football is set to be kicked back into gear at Ewood Park this coming Saturday, December 10th.

This comes as a high-flying Blackburn Rovers outfit in the thick of the battle for promotion prepare to play host to mid-table Preston North End.

The day’s hosts, after a previously stellar stretch of form, will head into proceedings in search of a bounce-back result.

This comes after Jon Dahl Tomasson’s troops slipped to a 2nd defeat in three in the club’s final outing prior to the World Cup break.

A trip to Turf Moor to take on table-topping Burnley in one of the most highly-anticipated fixtures of the Championship season to date ultimately culminated in Blackburn being utterly outclassed.

A 2nd-half Ashley Barnes double, either side of Anass Zaroury’s finish inside the closing quarter of an hour, gave rise to an altogether one-sided 3-0 final scoreline in Lancashire.

Tomasson and co, as a result, have slipped out of the automatic promotion places, just shy of the halfway mark of the term.

Back-to-back friendly wins over Hearts and Dutch giants Ajax over the last week, though, will no doubt inspire confidence when it comes to the chances of a swift return to winning ways on the competitive front at Ewood Park, too.

Hopeful of stopping Blackburn from precisely that on Saturday afternoon? A Preston North End side with sights set on a bounce-back three-point haul of their own.

The Lilywhites, ahead of their most recent outing, had represented one of the Championship’s most in-form sides.

En route to solidifying themselves front and centre in the tussle for a promotion playoff spot, Preston rattled off a trio of successive victories, over Middlesbrough, Swansea City, and Reading.

In turn, it came as a major source of disappointment upon Ryan Lowe’s men, last time out, slipping to a deserved defeat.

A visit to the Den for a showdown with Millwall saw the hosts rack up four goals, to climb clear of Preston in the table, owing to superior goal difference.

The tight nature of the standings in England’s 2nd tier at present, though, means that a surprise victory for Saturday’s visitors to Ewood Park could, remarkably, guide them as high as 4th.

But we at 101 view such a scenario as altogether unlikely, with Blackburn looking clear favourites to ultimately emerge on the right side of the scoreline come the full-time whistle in Lancashire.
