Blackburn returned to winning ways with a 3-1 victory over Norwich City last time out, following back-to-back defeats to Swansea and Chelsea, in the Championship and League Cup, respectively. Rovers now sit 10th in the table on 22 points and know that a win here would see them leapfrog their Lancashire rivals, who occupy the last playoff spot. However, Preston should be a little more confident after they ended a seven-match winless run by beating Coventry 3-2 last time out, coming from 1-0 down to take a 3-1 lead along the way.
