📋 Team News: Blackburn Rovers

There is just the lone fitness concern for the Blackburn Rovers gaffer Tony Mowbray to contend with from an otherwise complete group. Bradley Dack (Cruciate Ligament Injury) is out of contention.

It seems likely that Rovers could line up in a 4-3-3 system in the match featuring Thomas Kaminski, Amari'i kyren Bell, Derrick Williams, Darragh Lenihan, Ryan Nyambe, Joe Rothwell, Lewis Holtby, Bradley Johnson, Ben Brereton, Adam Armstrong and Tyrhys Dolan.

🗞️ Team News: Cardiff City

Owing to a fully healthy group ready to go, Cardiff City manager Neil Harris does not have any fitness worries to report coming into this clash.

It’s our belief that The Bluebirds seem likely to utilise a 4-2-3-1 lineup using Alex Smithies, Jordi Osei-Tutu, Sean Morrison, Curtis Nelson, Aden Flint, Leandro Bacuna, Marlon Pack, Joshua Murphy, Lee Tomlin, David Hoilett and Kieffer Moore.

🧠 Prediction

Our feeling is that Cardiff City would be disappointed if they were not to break down this Blackburn Rovers side, although it may not quite be as many as the goals that they could concede.

Our tip is for a very close game with a 2-1 winning margin for Blackburn Rovers at the end of the 90 minutes. There looks to be little in this one.
