            Leeds vs Blackburn Rovers Preview, Tips & Stats

            Blackburn Rovers make the trip to Elland Road to take on Leeds in the early Saturday kick off in the Championship this weekend. Leeds are looking to close in on the top spot on the table, whereas Blackburn aim for a top half finish.

            Leeds currently sit third in the Championship after 42 games. The Whites have 26 wins, nine draws and seven losses, leaving them on 87 points, one point from both Ipswich and Leicester.

            In their last five games in all competitions, Leeds have two wins, two draws and one loss.

            The visit from Millwall saw Wilfried Gnonto open the scoring for Leeds to give them the lead at halftime. Dan James added another late in the game to secure the 2 - 0 win for Leeds. Vakoun Issouf Bayo gave Watford the lead just after the 30 minute mark but Crysencio Summerville equalised for Leeds. Emmanuel Dennis regained the lead for Watford just before the halftime whistle, but an 85th minute goal from Mateo Joseph rescued a 2 - 2 draw for Leeds.

            Leeds were back to winning ways against Hull City. Sam Byram opened the scoring in the ninth minute for Leeds but Fabio Carvalho equalised before halftime. However, an 88th minute penalty from Summerville and a 97th minute goal from James gave Leeds the 3 - 1 win. The next time out saw Leeds stumble against Coventry. Ellis Simms and Haji Wright gave Coventry the 2 - 0 lead early in the second half. Joel Piroe did get on the scoresheet for Leeds, but Coventry held on for the 2 - 1 win.

            The last time out for Leeds was against Sunderland. Leeds had just one shot on target in 70% of the possession as they played out a 0 - 0 draw.

            Blackburn, on the other hand, currently sit 18th in the Championship. In 42 games, Blackburn have 12 wins, ten draws and 20 losses which leaves them on 46 points, just three points above the relegation zone.

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

            The trip to the Riverside Stadium saw Blackburn and Middlesbrough both register just three shots on target. Neither side could convert any of these shots as the game finished in a 0 - 0 draw. The goal from Conor Chaplin in the ninth minute was the only goal of the game as Ipswich handed Blackburn a 1 - 0 loss.

            Blackburn bounced back the next time out against Sunderland. A brace from Sammie Szmodics gave Blackburn the 2 - 0 lead at halftime. Ryan Hedges and Tyrhys Dolan added to the scoresheet and even with the late goal from Sunderland’s Chris RIgg, an even later goal from Andrew Moran secured the 5 - 1 win for Blackburn. However, the visit from Southampton saw Blackburn only manage three shots on target in 31% of the possession in another 0 - 0 draw for Rovers.

            The most recent outing for Blackburn was against Bristol City. Braces from Tommy Conway and Nahki Wells along with a goal from Anis Mehmeti gave Bristol City the 5 - 0 win.

            Leeds and Blackburn have met 103 times in their histories, with the first meeting coming back in 1924. Leeds have the better record in the fixture with 48 wins in comparison to Blackburn’s 32 wins, the other 23 games ending in a draw.
