Defeating Middlesbrough in the previous round, for the first time in this season, Blackburn climbed to 2nd place in the rankings. With a stable performance in recent times, it will not be difficult for coach Tony Mowbray’s team to aim for the next 3 points.
Luton entered this competition after a 2-1 home win over Bristol City. This was the time when the Kenilworth Road home team played much better than before. Considering the last 5 appearances in all competitions, Luton has only lost 1 and won 4. This team has won 10, drawn 8 and lost 8 through 26 matches played in the Championship. Holding 38 points, Luton is currently ranked 10th on the rankings. Although 6 points behind the top 6, Luton still has 2 unplayed matches in hand.
If he plays well in the offset matches, Luton can completely break into the promotion play-off group. At home, Luton is playing well and has won all 3 recent times to welcome guests. The attack is a solid fulcrum for Luton, when the last 4/5 matches the strikers of this team have scored 2 or more goals. It’s okay to play, but when the immediate opponent is called Blackburn, it is too difficult for Luton to retain a positive result right on the holy land of Kenilworth Road.
Before this season’s English First Division kicks off, Blackburn must not put too much faith in the battle for promotion tickets. In fact, the away team played not so prominently at the beginning of the season. However, things gradually changed in the second half of the season, when Blackburn continuously had explosive performances. After 28 matches played in the Championship this season, Blackburn won 15, drew 7 and lost 6.
Currently with 52 points, Blackburn is in 2nd place in the rankings and is 5 points behind Fulham who is leading. If the current ranking is maintained, of course Blackburn will have a ticket to participate in the Premier League next season. That said to understand, each Blackburn’s upcoming match is important, but a final. Blackburn’s form is still very stable with the last 7/10 wins.
