Blackburn Rovers vs West Bromwich Albion match preview

Two sides to have narrowly missed out on a spot in last season’s Championship promotion playoffs are set to lock horns as part of the new term’s opening round of fixtures this weekend.

The matchup in question will see Blackburn Rovers act as hosts, in a meeting with West Bromwich Albion at Ewood Park.

Beginning with the former, Blackburn, of course, spent the bulk of last season looking a near-lock for a top-six finish, only for a late stutter to culminate in Jon Dahl Tomasson’s troops being pipped to the post on goal difference.

The ensuing efforts of the powers that be at Ewood Park to reinforce the club’s squad over the summer to date have not exactly inspired confidence, either, with the departures of all of Ben Brereton Diaz, Thomas Kaminski and Bradley Dack likely to be hard felt.

Will boss Tomasson be able to overcome such obstacles to rally his troops for another playoff push this time round?

Hopeful of putting an early dent in such endeavours, as alluded to above, will be West Bromwich Albion.

The Baggies have too bid farewell to key performers this summer, with Dara O’Shea’s absence set to be sorely felt at the heart of the club’s backline.

And, like Blackburn, West Brom’s subsequent reinforcement drive has left plenty to be desired.

Nevertheless, after clawing their way back from relegation candidates to an eventual 9th-placed finish last time out, the expectation will remain for Carlos Corberan’s side to establish themselves in the thick of the Championship playoff battle.

All of this considered, we at 101 view an eventual sharing of the spoils as the most likely outcome upon the final whistle bringing proceedings to a close at Ewood Park this Saturday afternoon.
