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


Blackburn Rovers return to Ewood Park to take on Stoke City this weekend.

Both teams seemed to be destined for Championship football next season, but who can finish their season off stronger?

Stoke come into this match fresh of the back of 4 scoreless draws. Whereas Rovers come into the match off the back of a 2-1 loss to Aston Villa.

In this video I speak with David Cowlishaw from the Wizards of Drivel podcast who gives me a quick recap of the Stoke City season, their chances this weekend and more.

We also get a prediction from the cat and take a look at the Championship form table.

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.
