BLACKBURN ROVERS TEAM NEWS

Blackburn welcomes Huddersfield to Ewood Park in the round 12 fixtures in the Championship. Both teams are currently not where they desire to be and it promises to be a thrilling game for the neutrals.

Blackburn have been enduring mixed form despite playing well in their recent games. Manager Tony Mowbray is experienced and has been charged with making a playoff run this season. However, this is unlikely to happen if they don’t pick points in important matches.

Looking at the team news, there are a lot of injury doubts for the home team. Big defender Greg Cunningham is expected to be out for a while after suffering anterior crucial ligament damage in the defeat at QPR.
The club is also going to be without defender DarraghLenihan who suffered a freak injury against QPR and is expected to miss eight weeks of action.

Huddersfield meanwhile have their injury doubts but could welcome two key players. Defender Terence Kongolo has returned to training and could play. Pacey forward Alex Pritchard could also feature as he is back to first-team training.

The Terriers moved out of the relegation zone with a 3-0 victory over Hull City before the international break.
Looking at the history of both teams a draw seems the most likely result. Five of the last six meetings in the Championship have ended in a stalemate. Blackburn manager also holds the lead in the coaches' stats having managed Blackburn to a 4-1 victory of Danny Cowley's previous club Lincoln City.

Blackburn forward Adam Armstrong appears to be a player in form having scored three goals in the last four league goals for the club.

Huddersfield are the team in form having won two of their last three games and would be looking to extend the run on at Ewood Park.
