The Lancashire-based side are currently sat tenth in the Championship table after 17 matches, and will fancy their chances of challenging for a top-six finish this term.
Mowbray’s side were beaten by Bristol City in their most recent fixture, which saw them drop to tenth in the second-tier standings, although they are just five points adrift of the Robins, who are sat in sixth position.

Dack is yet to feature for Blackburn this season, after suffering a serious knee injury during the 2019/20 season.
The 26-year-old was in impressive form before picking up that injury, and finished the campaign with ten goals and three assists to his name.
He’s already stepped up his recovery for the Under-23s, and will be eager to pick up where he left off when he does feature for Rovers.
Chapman is yet to make a league start for Blackburn this season, but will be hoping he can be given an opportunity to impress in the coming weeks.
The winger will be hoping he can find regular game time in the near future, although it wouldn’t come as a surprise if he was loaned out in search of that.
Dolan has caught the eye with some impressive performances for Blackburn already this season, although he has been restricted to just five league starts this term.
The 18-year-old came on as a second-half substitute against Bristol City in midweek, and you would imagine that he’ll be pushing for a spot in the starting XI in the near future, with a hectic schedule on the way for Tony Mowbray’s side.
