Blackburn preview: Still not out of the woods yet

Although Blackburn currently sit in 17th place in the Championship table, they are just five points ahead of the first team in the relegation zone. That being said, there are three more games left in the season, so things would have to take a really bad turn for Blackburn to go down, especially with them doing ok lately, losing just two of their last eight games in the league.

Yasin Ayari, Ryan Hedges, Arnor Sigurdsson, Harry Leonard, and John Fleck are currently on the sidelines with injuries.

Player to watch: Sammie Szmodics

With 24 goals in the Championship this season, Szmodics is the top scorer in the league. The Irish forward also has four assists to his name and he's clearly the player to watch in this game.

Szmodics to score two or more?

We already saw Szmodics score multiple goals in five Championship matches this season and given that he's the best scorer in the league this season, he clearly has the quality to score more than once in this game.
