Blackburn Rovers vs Derby County Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

Both teams are struggling for form but who will come on out on top in this Tuesday evening (19:45) game? Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

The last three games between the pair have seen honours even with one win for either side and one draw. Blackburn won the last meeting back on September 24th as they came back from one down to emerge victorious 2-1.  Matej Vydra gave Derby the lead only for Rovers to level a minute later with a Marvin Emnes strike and then Danny Graham grabbed the winner.

Tony Mowbray took charge of Blackburn for the first time on Friday night and his first game ended in a 1-1 draw with Burton. Rovers took the lead through a Matt Palmer own goal before Albion drew level in the second-half thanks to a Marvin Sordell effort.

Betting Tips and Predictions

It is now no win in five for Derby and four defeats from their last five away league games. The Rams are stuck in mid-table while Blackburn are battling relegation. While it is wrong to say that the team who has to win will come out on top the prices suggest that Rovers in the draw no bet market are the value selection.  Tony Mowbray will have no problems getting his team motivated and they showed some encouraging signs against Burton (especially in the first 45 minutes):

Danny Graham looks the best bet in the scorer markets for the Lancashire side as he has 11 for the season and has five in the last eight league home matches. Take a play on him to score first with the each-way anytime option.

Blackburn Preview

The point at Burton last time put to an end a two-game run of defeats though it is just one victory in their last eight league games. They need to start picking up points as they sit in 23rd place three points behind Bristol City in 21st though they do have a fixture in hand.

At Ewood Park, it is two wins and one draw from their last four games for Blackburn. Newcastle and QPR are recent victims here and Rovers will be confident they can get something against an out of form Derby.

Six of their last seven in the league have seen both teams find the back of the net with three of their last six ending 1-1. Just one of the last four Blackburn home ties in the Championship has gone over 2.5 goals. 12 of the last 17 goals in Rovers home fixtures have come in the last thirty minutes.

Derby Preview

It is now six games in all competitions without a victory for Derby and just eight points from their last nine. This means that they sit in mid-table with 48 points from 33 fixtures, ten from the play-offs and 17 above relegation.

The Rams have lost four of their last five on the road including each of their last two. They have though taken seven points from their three previous road trips to sides in the bottom five of the table.

12 of their 16 away matches this season have gone under 2.5 goals.  Each of their last five fixtures has seen one or both sides keep a clean sheet. None of their last five have been all square at half-time.
