  • Blackburn won just two of their nine competitive away games this season.

Stoke to edge clash of playoff hopefuls

Stoke suffered a shock 1-0 defeat to Bristol City in midweek, though they hung onto their place in the top-six by a hare’s breadth as Blackburn closed the gap with their comprehensive 4-0 victory over Peterborough.

Despite their contrasting fortunes in the last round, Stoke have a convincing record when priced up as favourites at home in the league this term, winning five of their eight such matches. Consequently, they will fully expect to bounce back from their minor setback last time out.

Meanwhile, visiting Blackburn seek only their second set of back-to-back league wins of the season, though they will be mindful of the fact that they have followed up four of their seven victories of the season prior to the last one up with a defeat.

Another damning statistic for fans of Tony Mowbray’s Blackburn is the fact that they hold a mere 30% win-rate when priced up as outsiders in their league games this term (W3, D2, L5).

We think they will at least get on the scoresheet here in a nip-and-tuck 2-1 defeat as only two home sides kept them from scoring all season, that is despite their poor overall travelling form (W2, D4, L3).
