Blackburn Rovers v Hull City: Latest team news, Is there a live stream? What time is kick-off?

Published

on

Blackburn Rovers host Hull City at Ewood Park this evening, with both sides looking to pick up important wins in the context of their Championship seasons.

Having blown a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2 with Luton Town on Saturday afternoon, Blackburn will be looking to bounce back with victory here, to put that disappointment of the weekend behind them.

Hull meanwhile, will be searching for their first win since the opening day of the campaign, and have failed to score in the league since that victory at Preston on day one.

Victory for Blackburn, who currently sit tenth in the table, could see them close the gap on the top six, while Hull will be hoping for three points to help move them away from the relegation zone, with the Tigers 20th in the standings going into tonight’s game.

Here, we’ve taken a look at some more of the key information you might need for tonight’s game.

Team News

Having missed the weekend’s draw with Luton through suspension following his red card at Middlesbrough in the final game before the international break, Blackburn have Hayden Carter available again this evening.

Mowbray has however indicated that Rovers’ starting XI will be a similar one to that draw with Luton. Summer signings Tayo Edun, Jan Paul van Hecke and Ian Poveda look set to miss out again, while fellow new recruit Reda Khadra looks set to start on the bench again.

Bradley Dack, Scott Wharton, Bradley Johnson and Joe Rankin-Costello all remain longer-term absentees, although the latter two in particular are seemingly closing in on a return to action.

Hull meanwhile, could be boosted by the returns of both Alfie Jones and George Honeyman at Ewood Park.

Honeyman, Hull’s Player of the Season last year as they won promotion from League One, has yet to play a single minute in the league this campaign due to an ankle problem, while Jones has missed the Tigers’ last three games with groin issue.

However, speaking after his side’s goalless draw at Swansea on Saturday, manager Grant McCann revealed there is a possibility of both players returning to action at Ewood Park on Tuesday.

Where can you stream the game?

For those who aren’t making the trip to Ewood Park, there are still ways to catch all the action.

The game will be shown live on Sky Sports Arena (Sky channel 408, Virgin Media channel 508), with coverage underway from 7:40pm.

Hull fans will also be able to watch the game via the club’s iFollow service for a fee of £10.

What time is kick-off?

Tonight’s match is set to kick-off at 7:45pm.

Blackburn will be looking to make it five straight league wins against Hull, having won 3-0 the last two times the sides met at Ewood Park.
