Match Preview, Blackburn vs Swansea Lineups, and Team News

Blackburn

The team is in the middle of a three-match winning streak which put Blackburn back into contention for a finish in the top six of the Championship. Of course, there are a lot more games to be played, but it is important for teams that have aspirations for a higher goal to get their form in order. Aynsley Pears, Ryan Hedges, Sam Gallagher, and Harry Leonard are on the sidelines.

Provisional lineup: Wahlstedt, Carter, Hill, Hyam, Pickering, Tronstad, Szmodics, Sigurdsson, Rankin-Costello, Brittain, Dolan.

Swansea

The Welsh team had a recent four-game winning streak, but after losing two matches in a row, that run seems far away. Ben Cabango, Josh Ginnelly, Nathan Wood, Nathanael Ogbeta, Joe Allen, Azeem Abdulai, and Steven Benda remain on the injured list.

Provisional lineup: Rushworth, Ashby, Darling, Humphreys, Pedersen, Fulton, Gimes, Lowe, Paterson, Cullen, Yates.

Player to Watch: Arnor Sigurdsson

The Iceland international joined Blackburn earlier this summer from CSKA on a season-long loan deal, but with Sigurdsson's contract expiring anyway at the end of the current campaign, he might stay at Blackburn beyond this season. While having made six appearances, Sigurdsson scored three goals this Championship season all the while starting only a third of those matches.

Sigurdsson is only 24 years old and already has amassed important experience, he was also in Venezia and Norrkoping for a while before moving to England. Sigurdsson has been capped 28 times by the Iceland national team scoring twice.
