            Blackburn vs. Cardiff Prediction, Tips & Stats

            We have an intriguing encounter at Ewood Park on Saturday as Blackburn Rovers face Cardiff City in the EFL Championship.

            Blackburn Rovers currently sit 17th in the EFL Championship with four wins, one draw and six losses from eleven games so far this season.

            It's been a fairly underwhelming season on the whole for a Rovers side that kissed out on the play-offs last season on goal difference only and had, and still have, hopes of going one step further this time around.

            They're coming into this game in poor form overall having lost four of their last five league games, but having won their most recent game in convincing fashion they'll be hopping they've turned a corner here.

            Blackburn travelled to Loftus Road to face QPR last time out and ran out comfortable 4-0 winners courtesy of goals from Tyrhys Dolan, Arnór Sigurðsson (X2) and Sammie Szmodics.

            Blackburn have performed impressively in most of their games but have still come out on the losing end more often than not, mostly owing to a multitude of lapse defensive moments amidst an admirable but naive approach in the majority of games.

            They're entering this one having won two and lost three of their last five games on home soil so they still have a lot of room to improve but having already faced Cardiff at Ewood this season in the EFL Cup, a game they won 5-2, they'll fancy themselves to come out on top in this one.

            Cardiff City currently sit 8th in the EFL Championship with five wins, two draws and four losses from eleven games so far this season.

            The Welsh side will be hugely satisfied with where they currently sit in the table and have improved notably following a poor start to the season.

            They're coming into this game in good form having won three, drawn one and lost one of their last five games in the league, the most recent of which was a 1-1 draw with Watford, with a first half strike from Mark McGuinness earning the Bluebirds a point in an even encounter.

            Cardiff embarked on a four-game winning streak not long back which allowed them to shoot up the table but they're now coming into this one having taken just one point from their last two games and while that's not enough to make them worry yet their fans will be hoping their bubble hasn't burst.

            As previously mentioned, they've already lost 5-2 at this ground this season so they'll need a stark improvement to come away with a win here.

            For our Blackburn vs. Cardiff prediction, we're going for a 2-1 win for the home side.

            Blackburn Team News

            Adam Wharton should be fit again for Blackburn after missing the 4-0 win at QPR with a groin issue but he may now have to settle for a place on the bench after Joe Rankin-Costello's impressive performance in the middle of the park at Loftus Road.

            Bournemouth loanee James Hill should continue at right-back while Niall Ennis will hope to get more game time as he works his way back to full fitness following a long period out with injury.

            Summer signing Semir Telalović was an unused substitute last time out and is still looking to kickstart his Rovers career but with Harry Leonard now fit again he could have fallen even further down the pecking order.

            Cardiff Team News

            Aaron Ramsey is out injured for Cardiff but Kion Etete and Yakou Meite could return to the match day squad after missing time with muscle injuries.

            Etete in particular has been impressive up top this season and if fit he'll battle it out with Ike Ugo for a place in the starting lineup.
