Time is running out if Blackburn Rovers are going to snatch a play-off place.

Tony Mowbray’s side were actually second in the table as recently as 9 February but, having lost eight of their last 14, have slipped down to eighth.

The Blue and Whites lost both games over Easter weekend, 2-1 at Peterborough before a 1-0 home reverse against Stoke.

As a result, Rovers start the weekend three points below the play-off line.

After this, Blackburn face second-placed Bournemouth away before hosting Birmingham on the final day, probably needing seven points to get into the top six.

Thus, this is very much must win.

Preston North End meanwhile were champions of England in 1889 and 1890 but haven’t played top-tier football since 1961.

This isn’t going to change with Ryan Lowe’s men currently 15th, not going to go up or down this year.

The Lilywhites lost 3-0 at Craven Cottage on Tuesday, the night Fulham sealed promotion, ending their three match unbeaten sequence.

Despite having essentially nothing to play for, Preston would love to all but end their Lancashire rival’s hope of promotion.

Who will win this local derby at Deepdale?
