Stoke City vs Blackburn Rovers (2-3) – Match Review – 2018/19

Blackburn Rovers picked up a massive 3 points after scrapping a cheeky away win against Stoke City.

Rovers actually cruised to a three goal lead by the opening minutes of the 2nd half, and looked to have secured the win without breaking too much of sweat.

However Stoke clawed their way back into the match, scoring a quick fire double to leave Rovers scrambling. Rovers nearly threw the points away as an effort by sub Peter Crouch nearly made its way into the net, but Blackburn can thank David Raya for his big body save.

The drama was not over for Rovers as Stoke were awarded a penalty in the dying stages of the match, which Stoke failed to convert. A lucky escape in the end.

As for the goals, one for Bradley Dack (of course), Danny Graham and the third by Harrisom Reed.

Stoke City vs Blackburn Rovers – Match Preview – 2018/19

Next up for Blackburn Rovers is another tricky away match when they head to the Bet365 Stadium to take on Stoke City.

Blackburn come into this match off the back of a 0-0 draw against Derby County, whereas Stoke City come into this match fresh off the back of a victory against Swansea City.

Rovers will hope to have Captain Fantastic back in the lineup after Charlie has missed the midweek match against Derby.

In this video we count down to kick off with a look at the current form books of both Stoke and Rovers. We also have a chat with David Cowlishaw from the Wizards of Drivel podcast. Finally we get a cheeky, if not horrendous prediction from Cass the Cat.

Derby County vs Blackburn Rovers (0-0) – Match Review – 2018/19

Blackburn Rovers escape Pride Park with a share of the points as Derby County fail to make all their possession and dominance count in a game that Rovers struggled to get into.

In a match that offered very little to get excited about from a Rovers point of view, the only major opportunity that went our way was a Bradley Dack effort that went close.

Derby on the other hand, looked a real threat from the off, and were so dominant that Tony Mowbray had to make a mid first half substitution. Conway was removed with Danny Graham coming on.

Rovers did start to impose themselves in the last 15 minutes, but we could not really threaten Derby.

However despite the terrible performance, I expect Rovers manger and fans are elated with the result.

In this video we hear from the gaffa Tony Mowbray about the result. Also we get some fan input from both Rovers fan Rob Young and Chris Parsons from the Steve Bloomers Washing Podcast. All that and much more.

Derby County vs Blackburn Rovers – Match Preview – 2018/19

No rest for Blackburn Rovers as we are back on the road for some midweek Championship action when we head to Pride Park to take on Derby County.

Rovers come into the match fresh off the back of a draw against Aston Villa at Ewood Park on the weekend.

Derby County on the other hand come into this match on the back of a defeat to Rotherham United on the road, which saw both Tom Lawrence and manager Frank Lampard sent off.

In this video I speak with Derby County supporter and Steve Bloomer’s Washing Podcast host Chris Parsons about the buildup to the match. We also have some team stats and a cheeky prediction from the Cat.
