Blackburn Rovers head into this fixture following on from a 1-1 Championship tied result versus Rotherham United.

In that game, Blackburn Rovers had 58% possession and 17 shots on goal with 6 on target. The only player to score for Blackburn Rovers was Adam Armstrong (17'). For their opponents, Rotherham United got 14 shots on goal with 5 of them on target. Lewis Wing (86') scored for Rotherham United.

It’s been a rare occasion in recent times that Blackburn Rovers haven’t conceded. In fact, Rovers have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 6 of their previous 6 matches, giving up 9 goals in the process. That sort of trend won’t necessarily be carried forward into this match, however.

A look at their previous results shows us that Blackburn Rovers:

  • haven't been beaten in the league by Birmingham City in their last 2 games.
  • have not been beaten in their last 2 league matches at home.

After a loss in their previous game against Cardiff City in Championship action, Birmingham City and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.

In that game, Birmingham City had 59% possession and 10 attempts on goal with 1 of them on target. Cardiff City had 12 shots on goal with 7 of them on target. Harry Wilson (9', 40', 86') and Mark Harris (68') scored for Cardiff City.

Lee Bowyer's Birmingham City have seen their goal attempts be successful 6 times throughout their most recent sextet of matches. The total of goals that they have conceded during that same period comes to 6.

Taking a look at their past results, Birmingham City:

  • haven't won against Blackburn Rovers when they have played them away from home in the previous 5 matches in the league. Not good.
  • remain unbeaten by Blackburn Rovers in away games against them for the last 3 matches in the league.
  • haven't been defeated in their previous 3 league matches away from home.

👥 Head to head

Checking on their prior head-to-head meetings stretching back to 15/12/2018 shows us that Blackburn Rovers have won 1 of them and Birmingham City 2, with the tally of drawn results being 3.

A combined sum of 16 goals were produced between them in this period, with 8 from Rovers and 8 belonging to The Blues. That is an average goals per game value of 2.67.

The previous league encounter between the two was Championship match day 23 on 02/01/2021 when it ended Birmingham City 0-2 Blackburn Rovers.

That day, Birmingham City managed 54% possession and 7 shots on goal with 1 on target.

For their opponents, Blackburn Rovers had 11 shots at goal with 6 of them on target. Adam Armstrong (10') and Bradley Dack (92') scored.

The referee was Gavin Ward.

📋 Team News: Blackburn Rovers

Looking at personnel, there is just one fitness concern for the Blackburn Rovers boss Tony Mowbray to be concerned about from an otherwise complete group. Bradley Dack (Cruciate Ligament Injury) won’t play.

🗞️ Team News: Birmingham City

Due to a completely healthy squad ready to go, Birmingham City boss Lee Bowyer has zero fitness worries to speak of ahead of this match.

💭 Prediction

Looking at these two teams, we feel that Birmingham City should have enough to score against this Blackburn Rovers side, but that is unlikely to be as many as they will have scored against them.

We think that it’s going to be a very close game with a 2-1 winning margin for Blackburn Rovers by the conclusion of the game. Hopefully this is a good one.
