Blackburn Rovers vs Oldham Athletic Match Preview
Two clubs desperately in need of a boost to kick-start their season go head-to-head in the Carabao Cup – and it is much more likely that Blackburn get up and running with a victory.
Both of these Lancashire outfits have lost their two league matches, with Blackburn sitting joint bottom of the Championship table after being beaten 2-1 at home by Charlton and 2-0 away to Fulham.
The first of those performances was much the better by Tony Mowbray’s side, for whom optimism was high entering 2019-20 after losing only one of their final six games last term and they were being tipped in some quarters to challenge for the play-offs this time around.
Oldham, however, look to be in a poorer state despite a 3-2 win at home to Liverpool Under-21 in the Leasing.com Trophy last week, not least because of the adverse publicity brought upon the club by Paul Scholes’ scathing assessment of how it is being run following his short-lived reign as manager last season.
Laurent Banide, a Frenchman who has spent most of his coaching career in the Middle East, hardly seemed a perfect fit for English League Two and so it is proving up to now, with the Latics having lost by one-goal margins away to Forest Green and at home to Crewe.
Essentially, with two divisions between these clubs, this looks a great chance for Blackburn to lift their confidence with a win, although it may be wise not to expect an emphatic scoreline while Rovers are still searching for a positive result.
