Stoke v Blackburn Prediction - Preview
Stoke City F.C.
Stoke City are currently seated 6th in the Championship table. In their last match, they lost narrowly to Bristol City 1-0 at Ashton Gate. Tyreeq Bakinson’s 38th-minute goal made the difference in the game, which also saw Joe Allen being sent off in injury time. Manager Michael O’Neill expressed his frustration as his men were unable to capitalise on the game’s opportunities, as a win would have moved them up to third position. They have a chance again this weekend when they host Blackburn, who happen to be just a point clear of them.
- Stoke have conceded an average of 1.05 goals per match this season.
- The last time the Potters lost to Blackburn was in November (1-2 in the League Championship).
Blackburn Rovers F.C.
Blackburn Rovers are just below Stoke in the league table with 30 points. They are coming off of a huge win, beating Peterborough United 4-0 at Ewood Park. The Blue and Whites went ahead on Harry Pickering’s 16th minute goal. Minutes later talisman Ben Brereton Diaz doubled the lead, and Darrah Lenihan added another netter just before the break. Brereton Diaz got his second 15 minutes into the second half, and Thomas Kaminski picked up his fourth clean sheet of the season. Manager Tony Mowbray praised his young squad after the game, citing their winning mentality as the key to their victory. They hope to keep the momentum going as a tough challenge awaits them with the Potters at Britannia.

Stoke v Blackburn Prediction - Final Thoughts
Stoke will be the favoured side going into the game, having the home crowd behind them, and being one of the stronger candidates for promotion. However, Blackburn’s emphatic last win has gotten them on-form and eager to spoil the party at Britannia Stadium. With Brereton Diaz being one of the top men in the league, and the Rovers youngsters being in the groove, they are in a position take the battle to the Potters and succeed in doing so. With that, let’s take a look at our predictions.
