      Preston vs. Blackburn Prediction, Tips & Stats

      Blackburn Rovers continue life under new manager John Eustace as they face local rivals Preston North End away from home in the EFL Championship this weekend.

      Preston North End currently sit 10th in the EFL Championship with thirteen wins, six draws and twelve losses from thirty-one games this season.

      The Lancashire club are having a fine season in England's second tier as they find themselves just four points outside of the playoff places despite working with limited resources.

      Many would argue that manager Ryan Lowe has Preston punching above their weight and they've shown a remarkable resiliency in their ability to bounce back from heavy and damaging defeats to remain in contention for a playoff spot.

      They're entering this game in good form having lost just one of their last five games, winning both of their last two outings.

      Their latest game saw them claim a handy 2-0 win away at Cardiff City thanks to goals from Emil Riis and Ben Whiteman.

      PNE are generally very good in front of their own fans and they come into this one having won three of their last four games on their own patch.

      When these two sides met back in November, Preston ran out 2-1 winners thanks to an injury-time winner so they'll feel plenty confident about completing a league double here.

      Blackburn Rovers currently sit 16th in the EFL Championship with eleven wins, three draws and seventeen losses from thirty-one games this season.

      Rovers are having a dismal season on the whole that's been compounded by turmoil behind the scenes involving questionable ownership, and with the club now under a new manager they'll be hoping to put this season's misery behind them.

      After manager Jon Dahl Tomasson left the club by mutual consent, Rovers appointed former Birmingham City manager John Eustace and after two games in charge he has one win and one defeat under his belt.

      A 3-1 win over Stoke City at Ewood Park was followed by a dour 1-0 defeat at Birmingham City in midweek that saw Rovers deliver a pretty inexcusable performance.

      Post-match, Eustace acknowledged the lack of quality in Blackburn's showing and knows he has a big job on hos hands to get this side where they need to be.

      Rovers are on a dismal run of six consecutive losses away from home and if that's going to change here they're going to need to deliver a level of performance that has eluded them for weeks now.

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

      Don’t forget to check out the rest of our previews, tips and offers for this weekend’s action.

      Preston Team News

      Andrew Hughes and Ben Whiteman are both facing late fitness tests as they fight to be involved for the home side. Should neither be deemed fit enough to start, expect Greg Cunningham and Ali McCann to start in their place.

      Duane Holmes, Brad Potts and Kian Best are all out injured

      Blackburn Team News

      Joe Rankin-Costello is one again set for a spell on the sidelines after coming off the pitch injured at St. Andrew's in midweek, so Jake Garrett should take his place in midfield.

      John Eustace may look to spark some attacking inspiration in his side following a dour performance in midweek, so one of Arnór Sigurðsson or Andrew Moran could come in for Ryan Hedges.

      Harry Pickering and Hayden Carter both remain out injured.
