EFL pundit predicts outcome of Blackburn Rovers vs Hull City

Published

on

Blackburn Rovers will be hoping to put things right on Saturday, after a 98th minute Luton Town equaliser confined them to a 2-2 draw. 

Tony Mowbray’s side will be hoping to transfer that frustration to determination and secure the three points against last season’s League One title-winners. 

The Tigers, who have not scored a goal since their opening day thrashing of Preston North End, played out a goalless game against Swansea City on Saturday, following another 0-0 draw against Bournemouth just before the international break. 

Rovers remain with just a single defeat to their name after six, with that coming against league leaders West Brom. 

Victory for Mowbray’s side could see Blackburn jump into the play-off positions, whilst three points for Hull would see them move clear of the relegation zone.

Sky Sports pundit David Prutton believes that Blackburn will be victorious tomorrow evening, predicting a 2-1 scoreline. 

The verdict

Blackburn will be hurt by the manner they dropped two points on Saturday, and Mowbray will be looking to take full advantage of Hull’s inabilities to score goals at present. 

However, Grant McCann’s side will pose a difficult test. They have proven to be tough to break down throughout their goalscoring troubles.

George Honeyman could also return for the visitors – a player who has the ability to unlock defences from an attacking midfield position and was extremely influential during their promotion-winning season.

The threat that Ben Brereton-Diaz and Tyrhys Dolan pose will have to be carefully monitored by The Tigers, whilst Joe Rothwell also has the ability to cause Hull’s defence numerous problems.
