Blackburn will be hoping to build on their 2-1 success in the League Cup in midweek when they won away to League Two side Bradford. In the league, it has been back-to-back 3-0 defeats for Rovers.

At Ewood Park, the Lancashire outfit have played two and won two defeating QPR 1-0 and West Brom 2-1. Having won just two of eight to end the season in front of their own fans Rovers know they need to get points at their own place if they wish to make the play-offs this season.

Dean Holden is the manager in the dugout for Stoke as Michael O’Neill was let go on Thursday following just four points from their opening five. At the time of writing (Thursday afternoon) Sean Dyche was the man heading the betting to take over the Potters.

On the road, the Staffordshire side have played two and lost two going down 2-0 at Millwall and 3-1 at Huddersfield. If you extend this into the previous campaign then it is three straight defeats and five from seven on their travels.

Blackburn vs Stoke Match Stats

The value here has to be on the home victory given that Blackburn have won both their games at home this season. They did lose their last two but both were on the road while Stoke have lost at both Huddersfield and Millwall in this campaign. The home side can take advantage of the troubles of the managerless visitors and register a home win.

The Potters have been behind at half-time and then again at full-time in each of their three previous road games. In both home games Rovers have also been leading going into the interval. Backing Blackburn HT/FT is another recommended play.
