      Blackburn vs Sheffield Wednesday Predictions

      The former Aston Villa boss got off to the perfect start at Blackburn by winning 2-1 away to local rivals Preston in his opening match last weekend. It actually extended Blackburn’s unbeaten run to 4 matches and they could move into the top half with another 3 points here.

      Sheffield Wednesday have also been going well of late though with just 1 defeat coming from their last 13 matches in all competitions. That loss did come in surprising circumstances though when they lost 3-1 at out-of-form Charlton in their last away match.

      Wednesday have adopted a more positive attacking style this season and they will certainly come here with that mentality again. Both teams have scored in 75% of their away matches in the Championship this season which is testament to the philosophy employed by Carlos Carvalhal since he took charge in the summer.

      Blackburn will be looking for the win too and in 9 goal Jordan Rhodes they have arguably the division’s most deadly finisher. Therefore we should see goals here and at 5/6 you have to fancy both teams to net at some point in the game.

      The home side are perhaps the more likely victors though in Paul Lambert’s first game at Ewood Park. All but 2 of Sheffield Wednesday’s victories this season have come at Hillsborough and Rovers have only lost 1 of their last 7 home games.

      It should be a close game but a 2nd 2-1 win in the space of 8 days for Blackburn looks a decent shout at odds of 8/1.
