Match preview

One of the more difficult to call fixtures of the upcoming Championship gameweek is set to play out at Ewood Park on Tuesday, October 18th.

This comes as Blackburn Rovers prepare to play host to Sunderland.

Both sides are primed to head into the action with spirits high in the camp, on the back of respective three-point hauls at the weekend.

Hosts Blackburn secured a return to winning ways at the expense of relegation-battling Middlesbrough, owing to an early effort on the part of Sam Gallagher.

Rovers, in turn, have climbed back up to 5th in England’s 2nd tier, just a solitary point adrift of table-topping Burnley.

Sunderland, though, were too triumphant last time out.

This came courtesy of a comeback downing of Wigan Athletic, featuring goals from Elliot John Embleton and Dennis Cerkin.

Tony Mowbray’s side, as a result, sit four points adrift of their upcoming hosts, with a game in hand.

Proceedings playing out into an eventual stalemate, on the surface, may therefore look the safest bet at Ewood Park on Tuesday.

Making such a call so difficult to make, though, has been Blackburn’s frankly remarkable recent stretch of results.

Jon Dahl Tomasson’s troops are the only side in the Championship yet to see one of their 15 fixtures end in a draw to this point in the season.

Not only that, but, since all the way back in late August, a full 10 (yes, ten) outings, Mowbray and co. have alternated, every gameweek, between wins and losses.

Fresh off a victory last time out, this of course means that, based on all metrics, Blackburn are in line for a defeat at the hands of Sunderland on Tuesday.

We at 101, though, are nevertheless backing the hosts to break this trend, en route to a first stalemate of the term at Ewood Park.
