The Championship returns for a full weekend of action this weekend and kicking things off is this meeting between third (Blackburn) and ninth placed Preston. Rovers had lost two of their last three before the international break.

Home and away form is the difference for the Ewood Park outfit as they have won six successive matches in front of their own fans. On the road, it has been two straight defeats and five in seven for Blackburn.

Preston did lose their last game (4-2 to Millwall) before the World Cup but have won three of their last four. After hardly any goals in their opening games four of their last five have gone over 2.5 goals.

Blackburn vs Preston match stats

The odds on both teams to score seem to be set with the idea that Preston are the defensive side that started the campaign. This is far from the case as four of their last five have seen both teams net and have produced 19 goals in total. Blackburn have netted in all of one home game this season so both teams to score is the play.

If Preston do score as we suggest they will then the man most likely to do so is Ched Evans. Evans had three in his last two before the World Cup break and if selected here looks dangerous. He can be taken at 7/2 to score at any time and this is worth an interest.
