After staging a quite remarkable comeback in the match against Wigan, Blackburn Rovers were left to pick up themselves for yet another Premier League weekend. Blackburn Rovers came into the match against Stoke City with some kind of form, whereas their opponents had been on an extremely poor run of form in recent weeks.

However, it looked like Stoke city were recovering from their European adventures, as they dominated against Blackburn. Stoke played extremely well to bring an end to the four consecutive defeats that they have been suffering in the League.
