Blackburn vs Swansea Match Preview
Blackburn lost last time out at Norwich but still give the leaders a few scares and can be happy with an end of season run that has seen them win four of their last five. They sit in 14th and a victory here and defeats for Preston and Hull would see them end the season in the top-half of the table.
At Ewood Park, Rovers have won each of their last two and three of their last four which includes victories over Derby, Wigan and Bolton. None of the last nine Championship fixtures at this ground have seen both teams find the back of the net. They have kept clean sheets in three of their last four here and have conceded just four times in the last nine.
Swansea are unbeaten in their last four and drew for a second successive time in midweek at home to Derby in a game that finished 1-1. It means they sit ninth in the table and a victory here would confirm that as their finishing place for the season. If they could improve their form away from Wales then they could be promotion candidates next time out.
Away from the Liberty Stadium, the Swans victory last time out brought to an end a seven-game losing road record. A lack of road goals has been an issue for the Welsh outfit who have netted just four from their last eight. Three of their last five on their travels have been level going into the break.
Both these teams are ending the season in decent form and will be hopeful of a top-six finish next season though neither have much to play for here. A draw seems the most logical conclusion but we prefer a couple of anytime goalscorer bets in a fixture that should see goals.
The first of which is Joe Rothwell who looked lively against Norwich last time out and given licence to get forward in an open game is going off at generous odds to net here. The second of which is George Byers who does not score many but the midfielder looked an attacking threat in midweek at home to Derby and looks worth an interest.
