        Blackburn Rovers vs Plymouth Argyle Preview, Tips & Stats

        Ewood Park hosts Blackburn Rovers and Plymouth Argyle this Saturday in the Championship. Both sides sit in the bottom half of the table and need a win to put some space between themselves and the relegation zone.

        Blackburn currently sit 17th in the Championship after 36 games. Rovers have 11 wins, seven draws and 18 losses, leaving them on 40 points, just two points above the relegation zone.

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

        Blackburn could only manage one shot on target in 60% of the possession as they had to settle for a 0 - 0 draw against Cardiff City. It was another draw the next time out against Norwich. Marcelino Nunez scored in the 22nd minute to give Norwich the 1 - 0 lead at halftime. However, Dominic Hyam scored early in the second half to grab a 1 - 1 draw for Blackburn.

        In the Fifth Round of the FA Cup, Blackburn hosted Premier League Newcastle. Anthony Gordon opened the scoring for Newcastle in the 71st minute but Sammie Szmodics equalised just eight minutes later. The tie finished in a 1 - 1 draw and was sent to penalties. Szmodics and Hyam both missed their penalties to give Newcastle the 4 - 3 win. Joe Allen and Jamie Paterson both scored in the first half, and a goal from Szmodics wasn’t enough as Swansea held on for the 2 - 1 win.

        The last time out for Blackburn was against Millwall. Rovers went behind to Millwall after an early second half goal from Michael Obafemi. However, another goal from Szmodics grabbed a 1 - 1 draw for Blackburn.

        Plymouth sit just above them in 16th in the Championship. In 36 games, Plymouth Argyle have ten wins, ten draws and 16 losses which leaves them on 40 points, also just two points above the relegation zone.

        In their last five games in all competitions, Plymouth have one win and four losses.

        The visit from Leeds saw Wifried Gnonto open the scoring in the tenth minute. Georginio Rutter doubled the lead in the second half to give Leeds the 2 - 0 win over Plymouth. The next time out, Plymouth kept West Brom out for the first half, but goals from Cedric Kipre, Michael Johnston and Tom Fellows all scored in the second half to give West Brom the 3 - 0 win.

        Plymouth bounced back against Middlesbrough. Matthew Sorinola and Ryan Hardie both scored for Plymouth to give Argyle the 2 - 0 win for Middlesbrough. However, the next time out saw Plymouth on the wrong side of the 2 - 0 scoreline. An own goal from Brendan Galloway and a goal from Kieffer Moore gave Ipswich the 2 - 0 win, with Plymouth only managing two shots on target.

        The most recent outing for Plymouth was against Sheffield Wednesday. Plymouth had just three shots on target in the 1 - 0 loss to Sheffield Wednesday, with Djeidi Gassama grabbed the only goal of the game in the 60th minute.

        Blackburn and Plymouth have met 51 times in their histories, with the first meeting coming back in 1936. Plymouth have the slightly better record in the fixture with 21 wins in comparison to Blackburn’s 19 wins, the other 11 games ending in a draw.
