Blackburn vs Charlton Match Preview
Blackburn will be looking to build on their 15th place from last season which was their first after promotion from League One. They have added well to the squad this summer with Stewart Downing, Bradley Johnson and Sam Gallagher joining while they have kept Bradley Dack. Bookmakers think they are set to be in the middle of the pack and are 14th favourites for the title.
At Ewood Park, Rovers were strong at home last season with ten victories, seven draws and just six defeats from their 23 games. The 21 goals that they conceded at their place was the joint-fourth best in the division.
Charlton finished third in League One last season and had to come through the play-offs to gain promotion. It has been a tough summer as they have lost a key few players while they have had to look around for free transfer bargains. It is no surprise then that they are favourites for relegation but in Lee Bowyer they have a smart manger.
Away from the Valley, Athletic lost eight times which while still decent was the second worst of any of the top seven. They have though lost just two times on the road since 2019 in the league and will hope to keep this momentum going.
It is hard to argue with the prices on offer here which make Rovers the strong favourites given their home record and the expected gap in finishing places between these sides next season. Danny Graham, Sam Gallagher, Bradley Dack, Lyle Taylor are all good forwards so goals could come in this game so take a home victory and over 2.5 match goals and a smaller value interest on the same result and over 3.5.
