            Blackburn Rovers vs Wrexham: Betting Tips, Match Prediction & Preview

            These odds are correct at the time of publication and are subject to change.

            The Fourth Round of the FA Cup concludes this Monday with Blackburn and Wrexham. The two sides are fairing very differently in their respective leagues, making a good Cup run either pivotal for a change in form or a continuation of good form.

            Blackburn currently sit 17th in the Championship after 28 games. Rovers have ten wins, three draws and 15 losses, leaving them on 33 points, nine points above the relegation zone and seven points from the top half of the table.

            Rovers have historic success in the FA Cup, winning two of the first three Cups of the competition in 1890 and 1891. However, since then Blackburn have only made the Final once in 1960 where Blackburn lost 3 - 0 to Wolves and have made two Semi-finals, in 2005, where they lost 3 - 0 against Arsenal and in 2007, where they lost 2 - 1 in extra time against Chelsea.

            Wrexham, on the other hand, currently sit second in League Two. In 27 games, Wrexham have 15 wins, seven draws and five losses which leaves them on 52 points, two points ahead of Mansfield Town and just two points off of top-of-the-league Stockport.

            Wrexham have never won the FA Cup and have never made a Final. In fact, the furthest Wrexham have made it in the FA Cup is the Quarter-finals in 1997, where they suffered a 1 - 0 loss to Chesterfield.

            Blackburn and Wrexham have met just 16 times in their histories, with the first meeting coming back in 1960. In this fixture, a draw is the most common outcome, with ten draws so far, Wrexham picking up four wins and Blackburn picking up two wins.

            The two sides haven’t met since 1982, with the last meeting being a 1 - 0 win for Wrexham in League Two. However, there is a big difference in how each side has played this season. Blackburn have scored 41 goals but have conceded 53 goals, whereas Wrexham have scored 54 goals and have only conceded 37 goals.

            Form Guide

            In their last five games in all competitions, Blackburn have one win, two draws and two losses.

            Liam Delap and Aaron Connolly gave Hull City a 2 - 0 lead before the 20-minute mark, but goals from Sammie Szmodics and Harry Pickering managed to draw Blackburn level before halftime. Just after the hour mark, Alfie Jones put Hull back in the lead and following the red card to Dominic Hyam, Hull held for the 3 - 2 win.

            Blackburn opened the scoring next time out, Arnor Sigurdsson giving Blackburn the lead in the eighth minute, but Sean Morrison equalised before halftime. Szmodics put Blackburn back ahead just a minute into the second half, but Tom Eaves equalised with ten minutes to go forcing a 2 - 2 draw.

            In the Third Round of the FA Cup, Blackburn hosted League One Cambridge United. Jack Lankester and Sullay Kaikai did get on the scoresheet for Cambridge but a hat-trick from Szmodics and goals from Sigurosson and Harry Leonard gave Blackburn the 5 - 2 win.

            Back in the Championship, it was less successful for Blackburn against West Brom. Tom Fellows opened the scoring for West Brom and Brandon Thomas-Asante doubled the lead along with an own goal from Dominic Hyam giving West Brom the 3 - 0 lead at halftime. Jake Garrett found the back of the net for Blackburn, but another goal from Thomas-Asante secured the 4 - 1 win for West Brom.

            The last time out for Blackburn was against a struggling Huddersfield. Both goals came in the first half with Adam Wharton scoring in the seventh minute for Blackburn and Michal Helik equalising before halftime. Neither team could score again and settled for a 1 - 1 draw.

            In their last five games in all competitions, Wrexham have three wins and two losses.

            Jack Earing opened the scoring for Walsall early on but a penalty from Paul Mullin pulled Wrexham level before halftime. However, in the second half, Isaac Hutchinson and Taylor Allen both scored to give Walsall the 3 - 1 win.

            Wrexham bounced back next time out against Barrow. Kian Spence gave Barrow the lead in the first minute, but Wrexham ended the first half with a 3 - 1 lead after two goals from Steven Fletcher and a goal from Mullin in the 14 minutes of added time in the first half. Fletcher completed his hat-trick in the second half to give Wrexham the 4 - 1 win.

            In the Third Round of the FA Cup, Wrexham took on League One Shrewsbury. Thomas O’Connor scored the only goal of the game in the 72nd minute to give Wrexham the 1 - 0 win.

            Back in League Two, Wrexham hosted Wimbledon. Fletcher and Mullin were on the scoresheet again, giving Wrexham the 2 - 0 win despite having 47% of the possession.

            The most recent outing for Wrexham was against Newport County. Following the early red card to Boyle, Seb Palmer-Houlden scored the only goal of the game to give Newport the 1 - 0 win.
