There are just four rounds of fixtures left in the regular Championship season and things are still so close in the race for the play-offs as just six points separate fifth-placed Millwall and Watford down in 12th. Blackburn are currently two points behind Millwall but have dropped out of the play-off spots after West Brom’s win on Tuesday. And they’ve been here before

Over the past few seasons Blackburn fans have celebrated good starts only to suffer heartbreak as they eventually tail off, and the worries will be creeping in again. Although Blackburn are only outside the play-off spots on goal difference and have two games in hand on Millwall, Jon Dahl Tomasson’s men are winless in their past four games, including dropped points against three teams in the bottom half of the table.

Hoping to capitalise on that poor run are Coventry, who currently sit one point behind Rovers in ninth, also falling one place after Tuesday’s matches. The Sky Blues lifted themselves up the table thanks to an eight-game unbeaten run in February and March that included victories over Millwall and Sunderland and a draw against Luton.

That run came to an end with a shock 4-0 hammering at the hands of Stoke, which was followed by draws with Swansea and Watford, but Coventry returned to winning ways at the weekend, beating QPR. Coventry have a decent final run in too, facing Reading and Birmingham who are both in the bottom half of the table, though they end the campaign against fellow play-off hopefuls Middlesbrough.

Blackburn vs Coventry match stats

As mentioned, Blackburn aren’t in good form right now so it’s probably not the best time for them to face the team directly below them in the table. On top of two draws and two defeats in their past four games, Blackburn failed to find the net in three of those matches. At the same time, Coventry have kept 19 clean sheets in the Championship this season, with no club managing more.

When it comes to corners, these two sides are pretty even. Coventry win on average 4.5 corners per game and concede 5.4, while Blackburn win 4.46 and concede 5.39.
