Norwich City vs Blackburn Rovers Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) game from Carrow Road will have implications at both ends of the Championship table. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Norwich have dominated recent meetings between the pair winning each of the last three including in the reverse fixture on the opening day of the season. The Canaries were rampant that day coming out on top 4-1 thanks to a goal each from Jacob Murphy, Wes Hoolahan, Cameron Jerome and Steven Naismith.  Blackburn got a small consolation in the second-half when Anthony Stokes bagged.

The Canaries were held to a 1-1 draw at Ashton Gate on Tuesday evening. They took the lead through Yanic Wildschut before Bailey Wright netted for Bristol City and in the end the East Anglian side were hanging on for the point.

It is now four games unbeaten for Rovers since Tony Mowbray took over and they rescued a point on Tuesday evening at home to Cardiff. They were trailing for most of the game before a 90th minute Derrick Williams goal kept up that unbeaten run.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Norwich were desperate against Sheffield Wednesday and not much better against Bristol City.  Alex Neil seems to have lost the faith of the fans and the players yet the board are in no hurry to make a change. The atmosphere could turn to mutiny if Rovers get off to a good start here and I think they look well worth backing in the draw no bet market against a side who look done for motivation and confidence.

The under 2.5 goals is the outsider here and although this tends to go against the notion for Norwich they might struggle to break down a Blackburn side whose ambition might extend to just a point.  Alex Neil showed in midweek by subbing on a defender for a midfielder when the game was 1-1 that he is not prepared to throw away points either so take the game to have under 2.5 goals.

Norwich Preview

Just three points from their last five games mean that Norwich looks out of the promotion mix for the season. They sit in eighth place some nine points behind Sheffield Wednesday in sixth meaning they must go on a great run and hope the Owls form drops off.

It is seven matches unbeaten in all competitions for the Canaries though they have drawn the last two. Taking care of business against sides in the bottom half is something that Alex Neil and his team do well though winning each of their seven previous at Carrow Road against teams in the bottom eight.

Two of the last three for Norwich have gone under 2.5 goals though over the season 25 of 36 have gone over. It is seven games without a clean sheet for the East Anglian side who have the third worst defence in the division. Just one of their last ten has been goalless at half-time

Blackburn Preview

It is four games without defeat since the appointment of Tony Mowbray with two wins and two draws. The mini-revival has seen them climb up to 20th but with two relegation spots available (Rotherham look dead and buried at the bottom) and six teams within six points of each other indicate it is all to play for.

It is no win in the last seven on the road for Blackburn but they have picked in recent weeks with three draws from their last five and those two defeats were just by the one goal to Sheffield Wednesday and Ipswich.

The last four Rovers matches have produced a grand total of just six goals which shows that Tony Mowbray has worked on the defence. The last three goals for the Lancashire side have come in the second-half. The Lancashire side have managed just two wins on the road all season.

Norwich Team News

The Canaries will hope to welcome back Wes Hoolahan who missed the midweek game with Bristol City due to tiredness. Tim Klose (back) is a doubt as are Youssouf Mulumbu (thigh), Nelson Oliveira (foot), Matt Jarvis (hamstring) and Graham Dorrans (knee). Louis Thompson will miss the rest of the season after Achilles surgery.

Blackburn Team News

Corry Evans (groin) is back in training though this game will likely come too soon for him. Sam Gallagher is a doubt after coming off in midweek with a knock though he should be okay.
