Reason For Swansea City vs Blackburn Rovers Predictions

  • Only 4 sides have fewer home points than Swansea this season.
  • The Swans have lost 4 of their last 5 at home.
  • The Welsh side have lost 3 of their last 4 Championship outings.
  • Blackburn have won their last 4 matches.

Swansea’s Top Six Dream

Having built their playoff push on their away form, Swansea’s loss at the league leaders was more of a blow than it should have been. This season was supposed to be a bit of a free-hit for the Swans, but they’ve defied expectation to sit only two points shy of the top six.

The Welsh side have picked up 57% of their points on the road this term, with their recent home struggles leaving them out of the playoff spots. Can their top-six push turnaround with a much needed home win in this clash with Blackburn?

Tough Times at the Liberty

Swansea have seen themselves tumble down the home results table, having started the campaign with five straight home victories. Their form since has massively dropped off, with only four sides picking up fewer points at home than the Swans. Their return of just 1.3 points per game at the Liberty isn’t good enough for a playoff-hopeful.

Things have taken a turn of late, with the Swans picking up four points in their last seven matches at home. They’ve lost four of their last five matches here, with their last two outings here ending in defeat. Now their overall form is poor, with three defeats in four league games. The Swans need to turn that around, but they are likely to struggle in this clash.

Rovers Return to Top 10

While the hosts are struggling, Blackburn are on the rise. The visitors have won four games on the spin to move into the top 10. They overtook the Swans at the weekend, putting Rovers only two points shy of the playoffs. While a top-six finish may ultimately be beyond them this term, their run to move within reach of the playoffs is impressive.

Blackburn come into this clash with five wins in their last six, only losing to Leeds United at Elland Road in that stretch. The away side have moved on to a solid three wins on the road for the season, while they now meet a Swans outfit who have lost more games than they’ve won at home. Given the recent records of the pair, the visitors are well priced for the win here.

Blackburn’s winning streak hasn’t seen them blow sides away. The visitors have won by a single goal in five of their last six games, so we don’t see them thumping Swansea. The hosts have also lost by a single goal in four of their five home defeats, so we think that a 2-1 away victory is the best correct score pick for this game.
