Prediction: Middlesbrough vs Blackburn Rovers – Football Predictions

Check out our analysis, team news, line-ups and see our prediction for this match.

Blackburn Rovers will try to recover from their first loss of the championship season when they travel to Middlesbrough on Saturday.

Only two points separate the two teams at this early stage of the campaign, with Rovers ninth with seven points and Boro in twelfth place with five points.


Prediction for this match

With wins over Swansea City and Nottingham Forest and a draw against Millwall, Blackburn’s confidence was high prior to meeting West Bromwich Albion last weekend.

However, they conceded within the first 30 seconds and lost 2-1 against Valerien Ishmael‘s well-drilled side.

Yet, Tony Mowbray will have been pleased with his side’s start, especially considering they lost last season’s top scorer Adam Armstrong.

Armstrong’s goals have not yet been missed, either Ben Brereton Diaz Already scored three goals in the championship but at the other end of the pitch the Rovers have not played to zero in their last 13 league games.

Middlesbrough finished a similar run in their last game when a 0-0 draw with Derby County was their first goal in 13 championship games.

This was followed by a 1-1 draw on day one against Fulham, a 2-1 win over Bristol City and a 3-2 loss to Queens Park Rangers.

It wasn’t quite the beginning Neil Warnock maybe he’s hoping for a ninth career upgrade, but the 72-year-old will know more than anyone that there are some twists and turns ahead of us throughout the campaign.

Warnock is still hoping to expand his squad before the transfer window closes next week, while returning injured players will also improve Boro’s ranks.

The Teesside team have won just one of their last 12 games against Blackburn, and Rovers triumphed 1-0 last season.

Middlesbrough manager Neil Warnock pays tribute to the fans after the game on August 8, 2021

Middlesbroughs Duncan Watmore could line up for his first appearance since opening weekend after shaking off a calf injury, but seems unlikely to be risked from the start.

Summer signature Martin Payero has been limited to just two bets from the bench so far, but Neil Warnock has admitted it could take the Argentine a few months to get used to the English game before playing regularly.

22 years old Isaiah Jones continues to impress on the left wing in his breakthrough season; he has three assists in four games.

Tony Mowbray made his debut for the 19-year-old Liverpool loanee Leighton Clarkson against West Brom and was impressed with the midfielder’s performance so he can keep his place.

However, there is now more competition for spots in the middle of the park for rovers, since Ian Poveda on loan from Leeds United.

Ryan Nyambe is unlikely to be at risk after a hamstring strain, instead he is likely to return with him after the international break Bradley Johnson and Joe Rankin-Costello.

Middlesbrough possible starting line-up:
Lumley; Peltier, McNair, Fry, Bola; Howson; Dijksteel, Crooks, Tavernier, Jones; Ikpeazu

Blackburn Rovers possible starting line-up:
Kaminski; Carter, Lenihan, Ayala, Pickering; Travis, Rothwell; Buckley, Clarkson, Diaz; Gallagher


SM words green background

Probability: Middlesbrough 0-0 Blackburn Rovers

Led by two of the championship’s most experienced managers, we should see a typical second division physical encounter between these two teams. It may only be one goal that it wins, but we think it could end in a stalemate.
