Match Preview, Team Information, and Blackburn vs Leicester Lineups

Blackburn

It has been some time since the last occasion when Blackburn played in the Premier League and with the way they started the current campaign, their fans might wait a bit longer for that to happen again. Blackburn won only three times in eight matches. Ryan Hedges, Sam Gallagher, and Niall Ennis are out because of health issues.

Probable lineup: Pears, Carter, Brittain, Hyam, Pickering, Wharton, Travis, Moran, Szmodics, Sigurdsson, Leonard.

Leicester

The only negative day Leicester had this season was a match against Hull which they lost at home. Other than that game, they won the other seven which puts them at the top of the Championship standings. Thomas Cannon and Dennis Praet are expected to miss the game with injuries.

Probable lineup: Hermansen, Vestergaard, Doyle, Faes, Pereira, Ndidi, Winks, Dewsbury-Hall, Mavididi, Vardy, McAteer.

Player to Watch: Kasey McAteer

Leicester is trying to make a quick return to the Premier League after they started the season in a great run of form and after selling some important players over the summer, the younger generation is coming through from the club's academy. Kasey McAteer is one of those players.

McAteer was promoted to the senior squad this summer and thus far had a terrific season leading the team in scoring with four goals while making six appearances. The 21-year-old is making sure that the club's brass knows they have a real gem on their hands.
