THE TEAM NEWS

BLACKBURN

  • Blackburn return to action, sitting just three points off the SkyBet Championship playoffs in 10th place and can leapfrog opponents Bristol City with victory here.
  • In preparation for this match, they faced Premier League leaders Liverpool in a behind closed doors friendly at Anfield, losing the game 6-0.
  • Rovers will be without midfield talisman Bradley Dack as he continues his recovery from an ACL injury sustained back in December.

BRISTOL CITY

  • Bristol City lie above Blackburn in seventh place and can move into the top six with victory here, combined with Preston failing to win at Luton Town.
  • The suspension to the season will have given Lee Johnson’s side a chance to recharge their batteries at an ideal time, with the Robins having failed to win their last five Championship matches.
  • Preparations for this match have been hit by an individual at the club positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday, although it has not been revealed whether it is a player or staff member and Johnson claims he has a fully-fit squad to choose from.

THE PREDICTION

Both these teams have plenty to play for going into the restart with each gunning for a play-off place but the two sides had been struggling form-wise shortly before the stoppage. This is set up to be a cautious encounter with both sides desperate not to lose, so a draw could be on the cards.
