Blackburn Rovers vs Hull CityEnglish Championship, KO: 19:45 Sep 14, 2021, Ewood Park
Two reams in desperate need of a win clash at Ewood Park as Blackburn Rovers host Hull City in an English Championship fixture. While both sides have found things difficult this season, Blackburn have fared slightly better than the visitors.
Things have not been smooth for Blackburn Rovers this season with just two wins from their opening six matches. They head into Tuesday’s clash off the back of a 2-2 draw with Luton Town with Tyrhys Dolan and Harry Pickering getting the goals.
Despite their difficult start to the season, Blackburn Rovers have only suffered one defeat. They have been forced to three draws already this season and will be keen to return to winning ways.
Blackburn Rovers have struggled at the back this season and will need to tighten up if they hope to turn their recent string of draws into wins. The problem for Tony Mowbray’s men appears to be an inability to see out wins having thrown away the lead in their last two matches.
Hull City travel to Blackburn off the back of a 0-0 draw against Swansea last time out in the Championship. They were second best for long periods in the contest and finished with just a single attempt on target.
Like Blackburn, Hull City have also endured a difficult start to the season and have failed to secure a win since the a 4-1 victory over Preston North End in their opening fixture. Grant McCann's men are currently on five matches winless run and sitting dangerously close to the relegation zone.
Hull City are also in the middle of a goal drought and have failed to find the net in their last five matches.
