Blackburn Rovers vs Cardiff City match preview

It’s an all-Championship affair in Lancashire, making this clash tough to call.

Of the two, visitors Cardiff City are three points and seven places better off in the table right now, with the Bluebirds having won three-in-a-row.

Following a South Wales derby victory over Swansea, Erol Bulut’s team have beaten both Coventry and Sunderland, the latter on Sunday, with Mark McGuinness bagging a last-gasp winner at the Stadium of Light.

In this competition, having overcome Colchester United and Birmingham City, Cardiff are now one win away from round four, last getting that far in 2011/12, when they were actually beaten finalists.

Hosts Blackburn Rovers meantime hoisted aloft this trophy in 2002, beating Tottenham 2-1 at the Millennium Stadium, although they’ve only featured in the fourth round once in the last decade.

This time round, Jon Dahl Tomasson’s team are the top-scorers in the Carabao Cup so far, ousting Walsall 4-3 before hammering Harrogate 8-0 last month, recording the club’s biggest victory since 1954.

Don’t be surprised if this tie at Ewood Park ends all square and requires a penalty shootout.
