Bournemouth v Blackburn Match preview

Scott Parker must be feeling some pressure after seeing his team register just one win in six league games. The Cherries were able to hold league leaders Fulham to a 1-1 draw but need to return to winning ways since the six point cushion over third placed West Brom is not going to last that long.

Blackburn on the other hand, are on a roll and have moved on from the 7-0 drubbing at the hands of Fulham earlier in the season. The Rovers have amassed 13 points from five games and have conceded just two goals. They’re in the playoffs spot but have a realistic chance of closing the gap and aim for an automatic promotion spot.

Parker is likely to stick with the same formation that he used against Fulham with Ben Pearson likely to be selected ahead of Emiliano Marcondes. Jefferson Lerma is facing an FA charge but the Colombian is available for now.

For the visitors, Daniel Ayala, Sam Gallagher and Thomas Kaminski have been declared fit after spending some time on the sidelines.

Bournemouth possible starting lineup:
Travers; Stacey, Cahill, Cook, Smith; Billing, Cook, Marcondes; Christie; Anthony, Solanke

Blackburn Rovers possible starting lineup:
Pears; Lenihan, Van Hecke, Wharton; Nyambe, Travis, Rothwell, Pickering; Buckley; Brereton, Khadra
