20-y/o starts: The predicted Blackburn Rovers XI to face Barnsley on Wednesday

Published

on

Blackburn Rovers will be seeking to continue their fine form in the Sky Bet Championship on Wednesday evening as they take on Barnsley at Ewood Park. 

Heading into the game off the back of a five game winning run, Rovers are by far and away one of the second tier’s in form sides and are certainly showing that they mean business with regards to making a push for promotion this season.

Currently occupying third place – just four points behind the leaders Bournemouth with a game in hand on the Cherries – Tony Mowbray’s side will be aware that another victory for them tonight could move them to within touching distance of topping the league standings.

They take on a Barnsley side who have failed to win in each of their last six league games, with the Tykes sure to be dreading their away trip tomorrow night.

Here, we take you through our predicted Blackburn Rovers starting eleven for their game against Barnsley.

Thomas Kaminski will keep his place between the sticks after registering a clean sheet against Birmingham City last time out.

Scott Wharton, Jan Paul van Hecke and Darragh Lenihan will form the back three that has performed so well of late.

Harry Pickering and Ryan Nyambe will once again be asked to play as attacking wing backs, either side of the central midfield partnership of Joe Rothwell and Lewis Travis.

John Buckley will also keep his place in the starting eleven as a number 10, with the youngster having taken his goal extremely well against Birmingham.

Meanwhile Reda Khadra should get the nod up front alongside Ben Brereton Diaz ahead of Sam Gallagher, with the Brighton & Hove Albion loanee having also found the back of the net for his side in their win on the 18th December as they ran out 4-0 victors.
