Tip Reasoning

  • Ben Brereton Diaz has 20 Championship goals already this season.
  • The Chile forward has netted 10 goals in his last 11 appearances, including three in his last two games.
  • Blackburn have won six games on the spin, and have had an extra day’s preparation for this clash.

Surprise packages meet at Ewood Park

Blackburn Rovers and Huddersfield Town ended last season in 15th and 20th, respectively, but have both emerged as contenders for a Premier League return as we enter 2022. Blackburn, spearheaded by the lethal Ben Brereton Diaz, who has 20 goals already this term, sit third in the table after a run of six wins on the spin.

Tony Mowbray’s side have conceded just once throughout that fantastic run of form, in Wednesday’s 2-1 win over Barnsley, keeping five successive clean sheets beforehand. With Fulham continuing to see games postponed by the effects of Covid-19, a win over Huddersfield would take Blackburn into the automatic promotion spots.

Huddersfield are themselves unbeaten in five, winning three successive games over a productive festive period, to move into the playoff places. They required a mammoth defensive effort to hold out for a 1-0 win at Nottingham Forest on Thursday night, facing 23 attempts on their goal that evening, and the shutout was their first in seven matches.

Back Rovers’ Chilean star to net again

Before their recent upturn, Huddersfield had gone over three months without an away win, and given the defensive effort required in Thursday’s win at the City Ground, coupled with Blackburn’s extra day of rest and preparation, Sunday’s trip to Ewood Park may prove too daunting a challenge for the Terriers.

However, Huddersfield are the fifth-highest scorers in the division, and could provide a threat. Backing Brereton Diaz, who has 10 goals in his last 11 games, to net again for the in-form hosts, could be the best value play ahead of this clash. A 2-1 win for the promotion-chasing hosts, meanwhile, should represent a decent correct score prediction.
