          Blackburn vs. Hull Prediction, Tips & Stats

          Ewood Park plays host to an intriguing fixture in the EFL Championship on Saturday afternoon as Blackburn Rovers face Hull City.

          Blackburn Rovers currently sit 7th in the EFL Championship with one win and one draw from their opening two matches.

          Rovers began their campaign with an impressive 2-1 win at home to West Bromwich Albion before being held to a 2-2 draw away at Rotherham United last weekend.

          The result at Rotherham was a fairly underwhelming one for a Rovers side hoping to mount a play-off push this season as they found themselves 2-0 down just three minutes into the second half.

          However, manager Jon Dahl Tomasson made a number of changes and Rovers improved dramatically in the second half and, aided by a red card for Rotherham's Fred Onyedinma, Blackburn salvaged a point thanks to a brace from Sammie Szmodics - who incidentally missed a penalty in the first half before giving away the first goal.

          Rovers will be fairly satisfied with the paint given the circumstances but it's a game they should have won and they'll now look to make amends for those dropped points at home to a solid Hull team.

          It's been a hard summer for Blackburn amidst rumours their manager is set to walk from his post due to lack of transfers.

          Rovers' squad is thin and full of academy graduates and unless they can find the means to provide Tomasson with the four new signings he's requested they may well lose his services.

          For now, though, he remains in charge and while he's there they'll continue to be a tough side to beat.

          Hull City currently sit 12th in the EFL Championship with one win and one defeat from their opening two matches.

          The Tigers' campaign started with an unlucky 2-1 defeat away at Norwich City one the opening day before opening their account with an impressive 4-2 win at home to newly promoted Sheffield Wednesday last weekend.

          Hull firmly outclassed their fellow Yorkshire club last weekend a fine hat-trick from Ozan Tufan followed by a goal from Aaron Connolly sealed all three points in their first win of the season.

          Liam Roseniors men are hoping to kick on from a mediocre campaign last time out and backed by a decent summer in the transfer market they'll believe that they possess enough quality to mount a play-off push this season.

          Star man Tufan, last weekend's hat-trick hero, is vital to their chances this season and he missed a significant period of time with injury during the last campaign so if they can keep him fit they should be a much more fearsome prospect this time around.

          Rovers are tough, tough side to beat on their own patch so a draw would be good going for Hull here.

          For our Blackburn vs. Hull prediction, we're going for a 1-1 draw.

          Blackburn Team News

          Manager Jon Dahl Tomasson has largely put his faith in a similar XI in his first two games this season so expect some continuity from Rovers here with Adam Wharton seemingly likely to start in midfielder ahead of club captain Lewis Travis.

          Blackburn did start very poorly against Rotherham last weekend but the introduction of Niall Ennis, Callum Brittain and Ryan Hedges led to a marked improvement in performance so don't be surprised if we see one or two of those names from the start.

          Hull Team News

          Ozan Tufan bagged an impressive hat-trick for The Tigers last weekend and his involvement here is a no brainer.

          Aaron Connolly bagged a goal off the bench last weekend and will hope to force his way into the starting lineup, but whether he can displace Liam Delap up front remains to be seen.

          All in all, expect Liam Rosenior to show a lot of faith in the side that battered Sheffield Wednesday last weekend.
