Both these sides are unbeaten in four league outings ahead of this fixture and we expect the hosts to put up a decent challenge.
Fulham sit just outside the automatic promotion places, with Leeds and West Brom now just three and four points ahead of them respectively after both have dropped points in recent times, though the Cottagers have benefited from a kind fixture list of late.
Scott Parker’s men haven’t faced a team currently in the top half of the table in seven matches, with only a then ninth-placed Hull in the top half at the time of the game.
However, they’ve won just two of their last nine against those currently occupying a slot in the upper half (W2-D3-L4). Each of these games were tight with no more than a single goal deciding any, while eight of the nine finished either 2-1 or 1-1 with both teams finding the net.
Blackburn have only lost two of 15 matches at Ewood Park this term, going unbeaten in their last 10. What’s more, against teams 13th or above they’ve won four of seven unbeaten games, so they certainly shouldn’t prove pushovers.
Even a growing injury list hasn’t prevented them from picking up results, with as many as eight players sidelined at present, and so we’re still inclined to get behind them draw no bet.
Former Spurs attacking midfielder Lewis Holtby is the latest to add his name to the treatment table for Rovers and could potentially be out for months, joining the influential Bradley Dack on the sidelines.
With central midfielders Corey Evans and Joe Rothwell also picking up injuries in January, Tony Mowbray has a dilemma as to who should play in behind the striker in his favoured 4-2-3-1, or whether he should switch things around and use 4-4-2 as he has on occasion.
Both Teams To Score, Blackburn Draw No Bet
On the flip side of the coin, Scott Parker will be mightily relieved to have star striker Aleksandar Mitrovic back in action and he returned with a goal against Huddersfield last time out.
That encourages us to plump for both teams to score, as Blackburn have still found a route through to goal without top scorer Dack, netting in all eight league fixtures he’s missed as well as an FA Cup clash away to Birmingham. Both teams have now scored in seven of their last eight outings across all competitions, as they’re not totally reliant upon the 26-year-old for goals.
