Blackburn begin play in a fairly good position in the mid-table in the current Championship table. They aren't setting the world alight, but the job they are doing should be plenty enough to remain afloat if they can keep it up come season's end. They have only lost once in ten matches so far and are in 14th place, making them a full nine clear of the relegation zone at the moment. They are also only a point from the promotion places, so if they can start turning draws (they've had three in their last five games) into wins, they could challenge for an unlikely playoff berth.

A man to watch in the away team will be David McGoldrick, who scored a brace in the 3-2 win over the Lions and we predict that he is going to pose a big threat for the opposition defenders. Blackburn Rovers have been scoring goals for fun in all competitions of late, but the game against Sheffield United will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. The Blades proved their worth in back-to-back wins over the likes of Preston and Millwall and they must be brimming with confidence ahead of the trip to Lancashire. Sheffield United aim to secure promotion to the Premier League, whilst the Riversiders main goal is to avoid relegation to League One. Wednesdays football match at Ewood Park pits together Blackburn Rovers and Sheffield United, the two teams who have entirely different ambitions for the 2018/2019 Championship season.

That will offer hope to Blackburn, who have a very impressive record of scoring in 92% of their away league games this term. 75% of those matches produced goals at each end and they really havent been playing like a newly promoted team, taking the game to the likes of Stoke and Leeds away from home with those games both producing 3-2 scorelines.


Sheffield United, meanwhile, have went from strength-to-strength and then some this term. They had a good season last term, but it all fell apart late on. This Championship season has begun well for them, much like last time around. Their win on Saturday makes it three from their last five and gives them ten points from 15 on offer in that span. That is good enough for fourth place as it stands, meaning they are very much in the running for not only the playoffs but also the automatic promotion places.

Two performances on Saturday were important from Sheffield United as the won from 2-1 behind at Millwall. For starters, Mark Duffy came up trumps with two assists in the match. He also has a threat in front of goal having scored twice this term, so he can bother a back line in multiple ways. The other player to have a big day was striker David McGoldrick. He scored twice in the final 11 minutes of normal time and was on the end of one of Duffy's assists to take his tally up to four in the Championship.

Rovers come into this one following a tricky run of fixtures and theyve suffered late heartbreak twice over the past week, conceding three late goals as 4 points have slipped away in defeats to leaders Leeds and 2nd placed Norwich. Its 4 matches without a win as a result for Blackburn but they already have a big cushion on the bottom three and a steady mid-table finish looks the most likely outcome for them this term.

Your View?

Theyve not won back-to-back games since early October when a victory in the reverse fixture at Ewood was followed up by a 1-0 win over Hull. Sheffield United will be hoping for a little more than that and their 3-1 win over Derby on Boxing Day was timely given theyve been struggling for consistency over the past couple of months.

Expert Verdict: It's still very early in the season, but as things stand Sheffield United once again will be fighting for most of the season for the promotion places. That means any points they can grab away from home will be invaluable to them. Blackburn, meanwhile, will just be happy to not be relegated in truth. It's been tough on them yo-yoing up and down the ladder, so a draw here in this match would not be the worst thing for either side.
