            Blackburn Rovers vs Stoke City Preview, Tips & Stats

            Blackburn Rovers welcome Stoke City to Ewood Park this Saturday in a big weekend in the bottom half of the Championship table. Both sides are sitting too close for comfort to the relegation zone and need a win.

            Blackburn Rovers currently sit 18th in the Championship after 29 games. Rovers have ten wins, three draws and 16 losses, leaving them on 33 points, only five points above the relegation zone.

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

            In the Third Round of the FA Cup, Blackburn hosted League One Cambridge United. Jack Lankester opened the scoring for Cambridge and Sullay Kaikai was also on the scoresheet in the first half. However, a hat-trick from Sammie Szmodics gave Blackburn the 3 - 2 lead at halftime. Arnor Sigurosson and Harry Leonard both scored in the second half for a 5 - 2 win for Blackburn. Back in the Championship, Blackburn took on West Brom. Jake Garrett scored for Blackburn, but a brace from Brandon Thomas-Asante, a goal from Tom Fellows and an own goal from Dominic Hyam gave West Brom the 4 - 1 win.

            Adam Wharton opened the scoring for Blackburn in the seventh minute but Michal Helik equalised before halftime. However, with only seven shots on target for the whole 90 minutes, neither team could find another goal in the 1 - 1 draw. In the Fourth Round of the FA Cup, Blackburn took on League Two Wrexham. Any Cannon opened the scoring for Wrexham but a brace from Szmodics and goals from Sam Gallagher and Sondre Tronstad gave Blackburn the 4 - 1 win.

            The last time out for Blackburn was against QPR. An own goal from Aynsley Alan William Pears and a goal from Joe Hodge gave QPR the 2 - 0 lead. Gallagher managed to get one back for Blackburn, but QPR held on for the 2 - 1 win.

            Stoke City sit just below Blackburn in 20th in the Championship. In 30 games, Stoke have eight wins, eight draws and 14 losses which leaves them on 32 points, just four points above the relegation zone.

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

            In the Third Round of the FA Cup, Stoke hosted Premier League Brighton. A Jan Paul van Hecke own goal gave Stoke the lead, but Pervis Estupinan equalised before halftime. Lewis Dunk gave Brighton the lead but a penalty from Lewis Baker equalised for Stoke. However, a brace from Joao Pedro gave Brighton the 4 - 2 win. Back in the Championship, Stoke took on Rotherham. Baker scored the only goal of the game in the first half added time to give Stoke the 1 - 0 win.

            Jay Stansfield and Juninho Bacuna gave Birmingham the 2 - 0 lead going into the early stages of the second half. Jordan Thompson did score late on but Birmingham held on for the 2 - 1 win. Stoke were only on the scoresheet through a Jenson Seelt own goal as goals from Mason Burstow, Abdoullah Ba and Pierre Ekwah gave Sunderland the 3 - 1 win.

            The most recent outing for Stoke was against Leicester. Braces from Patson Daka and Jamie Vardy along with a goal from Kasey McAteer gave Leicester the 5 - 0 win.

            Blackburn and Stoke have met 102 times in their histories, with the first meeting coming all the way back in 1888. Blackburn have the slightly better record in the fixture with 45 wins in comparison to Stoke’s 40 wins, with the other 17 games ending in a draw.
