Preview: Rovers v Hull City

Tony Mowbray’s side are looking to end the month on a high

24 January 2019

Rovers’ can continue a fine start to 2019 by beating in-form Hull City at Ewood Park on Saturday.

Here’s our guide to the game…

STATE OF PLAY

Rovers made it three league wins in a row with victory over Ipswich Town on Saturday. 

Danny Graham fired Rovers in front from the penalty spot before the forward’s replacement Joe Nuttall scored with his first touch to ensure another three points were safely in the bag. 

That victory propelled Rovers up to 10th in the Sky Bet Championship table. 

A win against Hull would see the Blues sit three points away from the play-offs, whatever happens in other games.
