Blackburn vs Preston Match Preview

Blackburn saw themselves eliminated from the FA Cup in the Third Round going down 2-1 away to fellow Championship side Birmingham.  In the league, they were last in action on January 1st and lost 2-1 to make it two successive league defeats and no league win in four.

At Ewood Park Rovers were last in action on December 26th and on that occasion they drew 1-1 with Birmingham.  It is back-to-back home draws for the Lancashire side but they have now gone eight without defeat at their own place.

Preston were also eliminated from the FA Cup going down to a 4-2 home loss to Premier League outfit Norwich.  Their last league fixture came New Years Day and saw them lose 2-0 to Middlesbrough and they have taken just two points from their last four league games.

Away from Deepdale, the Lilywhites were last in action on Boxing Day and picked up a useful point in a 1-1 draw at Leeds.  The Lancashire outfit are five without a victory on the road though each of their last two have finished all-square.

Both these sides are struggling for form at the moment and can fix a bad Christmas by picking up a Lancashire derby victory.  Rovers home form makes them the more likely winners but the loss of Bradley Dack has impacted badly on them.  A better angle is to go low on goals as Preston have netted just two in their last seven on the road.  Under 2.5 goals is the obvious play while no in the both teams to score market also appeals.
