Tony Mowbray watched the likes of Shrewsbury Town and Wigan Athletic open up an advantage over Blackburn Rovers in the League One table as a result of playing in the last few weeks. Blackburn, however, had not been in action for the last 19 days. This is not to a combination of matches being called off and the international break.
The last game for Blackburn was the second week of March. Now, the club is preparing for a return to league action with the team set to host Bradford City at home on Thursday. Blackburn may have played a game more than Wigan, but they have played one fewer than Shrewsbury Town, who have a two-point advantage in the table. As a result, Blackburn could potentially go top of the table with a victory in the game against Bradford.
