Blackburn Rovers vs Nottingham Forest preview

While most of their Championship rivals featured in FA Cup games at the weekend, Blackburn Rovers set off to Wales to take on Swansea in a Championship clash knowing that three points would be enough to put pressure on the chasing pack for the automatic promotion spots, namely, QPR and Bournemouth.

It wasn’t to be, however: Tony Mowbray’s team ended up losing, 0-1. It was Blackburn’s second defeat in the last four games.

Worse still, the result meant that Bournemouth, who were only a point behind Blackburn at the weekend, are now still a point behind but with two games in hand, and QPR, who are two points behind also have two games.

With both sides ready to leapfrog Blackburn regardless of how Mowbray’s team performs in the upcoming weeks, tonight’s match against Nottingham Forest very much has the feel of a must-win game among the fans at Ewood Park. Certainly, it does if Blackburn’s EPL aspirations are to hold true.

And good news for Blackburn fans at the old stadium, Ben Brereton Diaz will likely return vs Forest. The Chilean international has 20 goals this season to date, and Blackburn struggles to ripple the net without him.

Nottingham Forest did participate in the FA Cup at the weekend, claiming a famous win against Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester City side.

Forest dominated the game, and goals from Philip Zinckernagel, Brennan Johnson, Joe Worral, and Djed Spence ensured an outstanding 4-1 win to savor for fans at the City Ground.

If Cooper’s Forest can keep up that kind of performance for the remainder of the season, it’s hard to deny that they would be worthy candidates for EPL status.

And, with five wins in the last six games played in all comps for Forest, Blackburn Rovers should expect a highly competitive game come 7.45 pm on Wednesday.
