Our match prediction:
Ewood Park will host Saturday’s match between Blackburn Rovers and Burton Albion. The Riversiders were hammered by Norwich City in their first home game of the season and they certainly want to give fans some cheer on Matchday 4. Blackburn Rovers are desperate to grab something from the match and seeing that Burton Albion have been struggling at the back of late, we predict that the hosts are going to emerge triumphant in Saturday’s football game. Burton have already conceded seven goals in the 2016/2017 Championship campaign and they are widely expected to return home empty-handed. It has to be noted that the two teams meet for the first time ever in the English second tier. A man to watch in the home team will be Anthony Stokes. The former Celtic man is eager to add more goals to his goal-scoring account and he is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders.
Highligted Player (Jason Lowe):
Jason Lowe is a Blackburn Rovers midfielder, who was born on 2 September, 1991 in Wigan, Greater Manchester. Lowe plays as a defensive midfielder, but he is capable of playing as a central midfielder and a right back as well. The Blackburn footballer made his senior debut on 28 March 2011 during his loan spell with Oldham Athletic. He scored his first ever goal against Notts County six days later. Lowe returned to Blackburn Rovers at the end of the 2010/2011 season and he made his first appearance for the Rovers on 24 August 2011 in a victory over Sheffield Wednesday (League Cup). Speaking of his international career, Lowe made England U-19 training camp and he was selected for his national team for the European Under-19 Football Championship finals in July 2010 (Ukraine). However, he eventually withdrew from the squad through injury. On 10 October, 2011 Lowe made his England U-21 debut in a 2-1 victory over Norway U-21. The two teams faced each other in the Euro 2013 qualifiers.
Highlighted Team (Burton Albion):
Burton Albion are one of the four clubs that secure promotion to the Championship at the end of the 2015/2016 campaign. The Brewers welcome their rivals at Pirelli Stadium, the venue that was opened in 2005. The capacity of the stadium is 6,912, while the seating capacity of the venue is 2,034. Burton Albion won the FA Trophy in 1987, with the team winning Football League Two in 2015. During the club’s non-League period, the Brewers’ local rivals were Nuneaton Borough, Tamworth, Stafford Rangers and Gresley Rovers, but while they were playing in the Football League the club’s rivals were Crewe, Port Vale, Notts County and Chesterfield. Derby County are considered Burton Albion’s rivals as well, but the rivalry with the Rams is rather friendly. The colour of Burton Albion’s home kit is black and yellow, while they wear white and grey jerseys on the travels.
