Blackburn had a dreadful February, taking just one point from six games, but they can make a positive start to March by defeating Reading at the Madejski Stadium.
Promotion from the Championship looks out of reach for mid-table Rovers but they stopped the rot with Saturday's 1-1 draw at home to Coventry when they seemed to benefit from the return from injury of centre-back Darragh Lenihan.
A little extra defensive solidity could go a long way towards helping the Lancashire side, who are the league's fifth-highest scorers and possess the division's second-top marksman Adam Armstrong, who has bagged 19 goals in 31 appearances.
Reading's defence should be tested and there may be some nerves in the Royals' ranks as they seek to avoid a fourth successive home defeat.
Veljko Paunovic's side dug out a 1-0 victory at injury-hit Rotherham on Saturday but they will be up against better players in this game and may fall short.
Reading have lost their last three home games.
