Match Preview | Blackburn Rovers (H)

16 September 2022

It's a third home game in a row for the Hatters who take on Blackburn Rovers on Saturday afternoon.

An entertaining 2-2 draw with Coventry City in midweek means that Nathan Jones' side are winless in their first six home games this season.

Commenting on the opposition, the boss said:"They are a good side, a really strong side but we enjoy playing against really strong sides.

"We were actually better against Sheffield United than we were against Wigan for example. It will be a tough game, they have real good players and they're in really good form so it’ll be a tough game."

Blackburn recorded a 2-0 win over Watford in midweek, thanks to goals from Ryan Hedges and Dominic Hyam which propelled them back into the play-off places. 

Under new boss Jon Dahl Tomasson they have won five out of their first nine league matches so far this season and will look to build on their eighth place finish last term.  

Ben Brereton Diaz leads the way in the goal charts for Rovers so far this season, picking up where he left off with 22 goals to his name last time out. 


Last time we met:

It was a goalless draw when the two sides met at Kenilworth Road back in January. Cameron Jerome went closest to opening the scoring, hitting the inside of the post from close range as Blackburn remained second in the Championship at the time.

Match Reports

Report | Luton Town 2-0 Blackburn Rovers

17 September 2022

Second half goals from Carlton Morris and Reece Burke saw Luton Town return to winning ways with a 2-0 win over Blackburn Rovers.

After a quiet first half, Town took the lead through Morris who stabbed home from close range after Jordan Clark’s cross.

The second came less than ten minutes later, as Burke surged up the pitch and produced a brilliant curling effort from 25 yards.

Nathan Jones made five changes from the midweek draw against Coventry City. Henri Lansbury came into the starting line-up for his first start of the season, with Burke, Tom Lockyer, and Amari’i Bell making it three changes in defence.

Cauley Woodrow started up front, with Elijah Adebayo and Harry Cornick missing out through injury.

The game’s first chance fell to the away side. Ben Brereton Diaz thought he had done enough to put Rovers ahead with his effort, but Dan Potts raced back in time to clear it off the line.

Lansbury was the first to threaten for the Hatters, breaking into the box before firing on goal, which was well saved by Thomas Kaminski.

After a quiet and cagey first half, Town started the second half on the front foot. Clark and Woodrow combined well in the box, but both players were unable to get shots anyway before Rovers eventually cleared their lines.

The Hatters continued to threaten, and came close to the opener through Clark’s snapshot which went just wide of the post.

And Town’s bright start was rewarded just before the hour mark as Carlton Morris got ahead of the Blackburn defender and stabbed home from Clark’s cross.

Morris then almost turned provider, flicking a header into Woodrow’s path, who would see his volley blocked well by a defender.

It wouldn’t take long for Luton to add their second of the afternoon, and they did in sensational fashion. Burke picked the ball up just past the halfway line and broke forward, with the defender producing a fantastic curling effort to beat Kaminski from 25 yards.

Luke Freeman and Cameron Jerome were introduced as Jones made a double switch, replacing Woodrow and Lansbury.

Morris’ afternoon came to an end in the game’s dying embers, as he was replaced by Fred Onyedinma. Gabe Osho was also introduced late on, replacing Clark.

Town would see the game out comfortably and claim all three points, their first of the season at Kenilworth Road.



Town: Morris (58’), Burke (67’)


Att: 9,889 (712 away)
