Match Preview | Blackburn Rovers (H)

27 January 2022

The Hatters are hoping to secure back-to-back wins when they welcome promotion-chasing Blackburn Rovers to Kenilworth Road on Saturday.

Nathan Jones’ side were far from their best in the 2-1 win against Bristol City in midweek but will look to continue their good run of form against the top teams in the division.

Blackburn Rovers are the surprise package of the Sky Bet Championship this season and currently sit in the automatic promotion places having lost just two matches in the league since November 3rd.

Their fortunes changed for the better after Fulham inflicted a heavy 7-0 defeat on Rovers but with the help of striker Ben Brereton Diaz, who has 20 goals to his name, they have given themselves a fighting chance of returning to the Premier League for the first time since 2012.

 

Last time we met:

It was the late, late show as Luke Berry rescued a point in the 98th minute as the Hatters battled back from two goals down to draw at Ewood Park!

Highlights from that meeting can be found via our YouTube channel below...
