Brentford vs Blackburn Rovers Match Preview
Blackburn may just be compiling a run of results that carries them into contention for promotion to the Premier League, and they are worth siding with on their trip to Brentford.
The Championship has had such an open feel to it all season that it always looked like one or two teams would storm through with a late run into the play-offs at least, and Blackburn are fitting that very bill just now.
Rovers have won four on the bounce, conceding only one goal, and they also held top-flight club Newcastle twice over 90 minutes in the FA Cup before bowing out in extra time.
Brentford were in FA Cup action on Monday but will be disappointed at having to contest a replay at home to Barnet, who are three divisions below them, following a 3-3 draw.
Thomas Frank’s side have otherwise been in good form themselves of late, turning a corner just as pressure was starting to build on their Danish manager, but they are still nine points behind Blackburn in the table and have a mountain to climb to reach the play-offs.
Although Brentford’s home form is their strength, they still look way too short here at odds-on against a team who have shown themselves to be much superior over 28 league games and so Blackburn simply have to be backed to head home with at least a point.
