Recent respective form guides

Blackburn Rovers's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Rovers have scored 5, a worringly large 9 have been leaked at the other end.

Bolton Wdrs.'s away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While the The Trotters have hit 5 goals, 9 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Blackburn R.'s 39 points from 26 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 9th position. Bolton Wdrs. find themselves struggling down in 15th position in the league having picked up 25 points from their 26 matches.
