Blackburn Rovers welcome Ipswich Town to Ewood Park this afternoon with both sides looking to bounce back with victory after being held to draws in their last games.
Rovers boss Gary Bowyer can welcome back Chris Taylor for this afternoon’s encounter, with the winger ready to return after a long spell out after groin surgery.
Tommy Spurr is in contention to start the game, but summer signing Danny Guthrie faces a late fitness test following an injury he picked up at Hull City last weekend.
The Tractor Boys may be tempted to go with the strike partnership of David McGoldrick and Brett Pitman, who helped rescue Mick McCarthy’s side a point at home to Bristol City last week.
However, the visitors, who won their last away league game 1-0 at Leeds United, will still be without Giles Coke and Teddy Bishop, as well as Luke Hyam.
The home side, currently 18th in the table, have only won once at home this season, although that victory was in their last outing at Ewood Park – a 3-0 win over Charlton Athletic two weeks ago.
Ipswich have a decent away record so far this season, with two wins and a draw from their four matches on the road – the only blot coming in a 5-1 hammering at Reading at the start of September.
In what will be an interesting affair between the two sides, a win for Blackburn would help propel them up the Championship table, whereas three points for Ipswich could put them into the play-off positions.
Blackburn and Ipswich fans… who will come out on top in this afternoon’s game match? Can Rovers pick up a second home win of the season? Or will the Tractor Boys come away with all three points? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
