Match preview

The upcoming Championship gameweek is set to be kicked into gear on Friday, March 10th, when two sides fresh off altogether impressive results go toe-to-toe at The Bet365 Stadium.

The clash in question will see high-flying Blackburn Rovers make the visit to a Stoke City outfit on the rise.

Beginning with the former, Blackburn currently represent one of the English 2nd tier’s most in-form clubs.

After a concerning stretch of results saw Jon Dahl Tomasson’s troops tumble out of the promotion playoff spots entirely, Rovers have since bounced back in scintillating fashion over the course of the last month.

This run includes a head-turning triumph at Leicester City in the FA Cup and, most recently, victory over Sheffield United.

After welcoming the 2nd-placed Blades to Ewood Park, Harry Pickering’s finish inside five minutes proved enough to guide Tomasson and co. to all three points, and a place in 4th in the Championship standings.

Safe to say, then, that Friday’s visitors will head into proceedings at The Bet365 confident in their chances of making it six wins on the bounce.

Such a result, though, could well prove a tricky one to come by.

This comes with upcoming hosts Stoke fresh off a frankly remarkable result of their own last time out.

After putting some distance between themselves and the relegation battle courtesy of two wins from four, the Potters made the trip to the Stadium of Light, eyeing a surprise victory over promotion-chasing Sunderland.

Few, in turn, could have predicted what was in store in England’s northeast.

Not only did Alex Neil’s men go on to emerge from the action triumphant, but they did so by five goals to one, courtesy of strikes on the part of all of Josh Laurent, Tyrese Campbell (2) and Dwight Gayle (2).

Stoke, as a result, have all but secured their survival, now looking towards the heights of mid-table in the English 2nd division.

We at 101, though, are backing the Potters to be brought back down to earth later this evening, favouring visitors Blackburn to ultimately emerge on the right side of a close scoreline come the full-time whistle in Staffordshire.
