Improving Blackburn will be out to continue their surge up the table when they entertain Nottingham Forest later this evening.
The Lancashire side are currently 11th in the table, four point off 6th placed Ipswich and are a 7 game unbeaten run.
A 1-0 win over Rotherham last Friday made it back to back wins for Paul Lambert’s side and they could climb up to 7th with a win tonight, and there’s little doubt that with a busy period of fixtures over Christmas Rovers’ fans will be looking to push in to the playoff places.
The former Villa boss is likely to make some changes to his side after a gruelling run, telling BBC Radio Lancashire: “Two games in three days is hard. We’ll need to look at that. It’s a big ask to ask the same group to go again. But for the ones who’ve not played as much, it’s an opportunity.”
One of that could make way is Corry Evans. The former Hull player played the full game on Friday but has been struggling with a groin injury and could be rested.
Chris Brown, Chris Taylor and Danny Guthrie could all start after late appearances on Friday while Simon Eastwood and Matt Kilgallon will hope to start after being benched last time out.
Nottingham Forest meanwhile drew 1-1 with Wolves on Friday night to make it one defeat in their last five games. The club are 15th in the table but are just 7 points off the playoff places, but its been slow progress for Dougie Freedman’s side.
Dexter Blackstock could start the game after coming off the bench to score against Wolves while fellow substitutes Jamie Ward, back in contention after a back injury, and Jonny Williams could also be in contention to start following impressive substitute appearances.
Its important that Forest now start turning draws into much needed wins as the City Ground faithful will not want to lose too much ground on the playoff places, with plenty of games and points up for grabs in the coming weeks.
The last three meetings between these two have been goal-fests with on average 5 goals a game shared. Last season at Ewood Park the teams drew 3-3 with Michail Antonio rescuing a point for Forest with an 88th minute goal.
If tonight matches that we could well be in for yet another cracker.
