Preview: Rovers v Bristol City

Rovers are aiming to get back to winning ways on home soil this weekend

7 February 2019

The divisions' two in-form sides go head-to-head at Ewood Park on Saturday.

Here’s our guide to the game…

STATE OF PLAY

Rovers’ four-game winning run was ended at Brentford last weekend. Quick fire strikes from Bradley Dack and Danny Graham saw Rovers take an early two-goal lead before Brentford came back to win 5-2. 

The Blues currently sit in 11th position in the Sky Bet Championship table, as one of four teams on 43 points. 

Victory over Lee Johnson’s side would see Tony Mowbray’s side close the gap on their opponents to just one point. 

As always, we'll be bringing you team news and live updates on the game via social media. Fans can follow all the action on our official Twitter account, with kick-off scheduled for 3pm. 

TEAM NEWS

Dack, Graham and Corry Evans all trained ahead of the clash, after picking up injuries in the defeat at Griffin Park. 

But Darragh Lenihan will miss the game and is likely to be out for an extended period with a ligament injury. 

OUR OPPONENTS

Bristol City are on a fantastic run of form, winning their last seven league games. 

The Robins have moved into the play-offs positions ahead of the game at Ewood, after beating Swansea City 2-0 last time out. 

City’s top scorer Famara Diedhiou has netted eight league goals this season.
