Blackburn are in with a real chance of finishing in the automatic promotion spots right now with Tony Mowbray getting quite the tune out of his men in recent weeks. Can they grab three points against relegation threated Barnsley? Find out with our Blackburn vs Barnsley match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

Mowbray's men to win

Blackburn's home form – and their form in general – has been mighty impressive of late. They were mauled on their own patch by Fulham back in early November with fans calling for Mowbray's head. Those fans are silent on the subject now. Since then, the Ewood Park faithful have seen four consecutive wins whilst their away form hasn't been too shabby either! Barnsley meanwhile haven't won in 13 away games losing six of the last seven. They've lost four of the last five games when travelling to Blackburn as well.

Rovers to run riot

We've already made the prediction that Blackburn will win this game but now we go for the bigger rewards by backing them to do it with a one goal handicap. Blackburn have won four home games on the bounce with a combined score line of 12-1; three of those games have been won by more than a one goal margin. Barnsley's away form over the past five reads as four losses and a draw. The losses are an even split with two one goal defeats and two larger than that; with that form somewhat 50/50, Blackburn's hot streak swings it for us.

Blackburn vs Barnsley: Check out the team lineups

If you look at how things stand right now it is 100% plausible that Blackburn and Barnsley are separated by an entire division next season with one side flying high and the other looking in real danger of dropping into League One. This game probably won't decide either teams fate but three points sure would be welcomed by both.

Blackburn Predicted Lineup

Blackburn have looked fantastic of late with a real grit and spirit shown after they were embarrassed by fellow promotion contender Fulham. This game won't in itself define their season but another win won't do any harm in their ambitions to keep the much coveted Ben Brereton Diaz.

Predicted XI – Kaminski, Lenihan, van Hecke, Wharton, Nyambe, Travis, Rothwell, Pickering, Buckley, Khadra, Brereton Diaz

Barnsley Predicted Lineup

Blackburn might hold Premier League aspirations but Barnsley, who have been in the promised land before, are just praying they live to fight another day in the second tier. In particularly away from home, they've been woeful so far this season. It must change.

Predicted XI – Collins, Helik, Andersen, Kitching, Williams, Gomes, Benson, Brittain, Styles, Leya, Morris
