Match Preview: Blackburn Rovers v Bristol Rovers

24 November 2017

Take a look at Saturday's opponents, Blackburn Rovers.

Rovers: Darrell Clarke's side will look to bounce back from defeat last Saturday to AFC Wimbledon.

Darrell Clarke's View

Opposition: Blackburn Rovers faced Oxford United mid-week and secured a 4-2 victory at the Kassam Stadium. Tony Mowbray's side are currently 6th in SkyBet League One, having won nine, drawn four and lost four of their opening seventeen games.

Dangerman: Charlie Mulgrew

The Blackburn skipper is a well-known name in the game and has spent a large proportion of his career in Scotland, taking in spells at both Aberdeen and Celtic.

The Scottish international, who over thirty caps for the national side, has shown his eye for goal this season and was quick to open his account for the campaign, scoring in Blackburn's opening game of the season against Southend.

Adding to his goal against Southend, the defender has netted a further four goals this campaign, taking his tally to five in total. Mulgrew was on the scoresheet during Blackburn's victory at Oxford on Tuesday evening, scoring an early goal and firing home a penalty, securing his second brace of the season.

Last Time Out: The two clubs haven't faced each other in the league since March 1992, where Rovers recorded a 3-0 victory at Twerton Park.
