Home form puts Blackburn on brink

Prolific defender Charlie Mulgrew could add to goal tally

Bradley Dack has had a superb season for promotion-chasing Blackburn
1 of 1

Sky Bet League One
Sky Sports Football, 7.45pm Thursday

Blackburn's return to the Sky Bet Championship will be all but assured with victory over Peterborough and they are hard to dislike at fortress Ewood Park.

You have to go back to September, when relegated Rovers were finding their feet in the third tier, for the last time they suffered a Sky Bet League One defeat in front of their own fans.

If they beat Posh, they will be eight points clear of third-placed Shrewsbury, whose race is run judging by their tired effort in Tuesday's home defeat to Charlton.

With Blackburn on a run of one defeat in 31 games, it’s hard to find a cogent argument to lay Tony Mowbray’s men, although they have drawn their last two – at Gillingham and Bristol Rovers – which perhaps indicates that the tank is starting to run dry.

Then again, Peterborough have won only one of their last six and Steve Evans will be cracking the whip as his new side battle to get back into the top six after a pair of losses – lucklessly at Plymouth, where they finished with nine men, and carelessly at home to Rochdale.

Blackburn have had three straight wins to nil at home and with the assembled firepower of Danny Graham, Adam Armstrong and League One Player of the Year Bradley Dack, you’d fancy them scoring.

The opposition ranks, however, boast the section’s top scorer Jack Marriott, who has got seven goals in his last eight.

One goalscorer bet to consider is Charlie Mulgrew, Rovers’ 13-goal centre-half and penalty-taker-in-chief. Posh have conceded 11 spot-kicks this term which should please the Scot's first-scorer backers.

Recommendation
C Mulgrew first goalscorer
1pt each-way 7-1 Betfair
