Sky Sports pundit predicts the score as Blackburn Rovers host Fulham

Published

After Saturday afternoon’s convincing 3-0 win over promotion-rivals West Brom, Fulham hit the road tomorrow evening with Lancashire the destination. 

The Cottagers travel to Blackburn Rovers, who are on the back of a 2-1 victory away to Derby County. 

Fulham showed their excellence Saturday lunchtime, dismantling a West Brom side who are also in the automatic promotion race. 

However, Marco Silva’s side will make the trip without Tosin Adarabioyo, who saw red after a strong tackle on Grady Diangana in the closing stages of Saturday’s contest.

Blackburn will need to break an early-season trend if they are to get three points tomorrow night, as they are yet to taste victory against any teams in the current top 12. 

Issuing his score prediction via his Sky Sports column, David Prutton believes that the visitors will run out as 2-1 winners.

The verdict 

There is certainly a case for both sides to emerge victorious tonight, as Fulham look to strengthen their automatic promotion bid, whilst Blackburn are looking for a spot in the Championship play-offs.

The Cottagers looked a class above The Baggies at the weekend, in what was somewhat of a statement performance and result. 

The visitors have such exciting attacking options, and whilst Aleksandar Mitrovic’s goals are predominantly capturing the eyes of the divisions, the service he is provided with is also of the highest quality. 

Similarly, Blackburn have very strong and influential attacking options, with Ben Brereton Diaz particularly shining this season.

Fulham are the runaway top scorers in the division, whilst only the top two and QPR have scored more than tomorrow’s host, meaning a result with both teams to score is quite likely.

It will also be no huge surprise if Fulham edge this one.
