Our football match prediction:
Blackburn Rovers are desperate to secure the Championship survival. The Riversiders have been in a fine form of late and thanks to back-to-back wins over the likes of Wigan Athletic and Derby County they moved away from the relegation zone. Blackburn are after their third consecutive win at home and, no doubt, the hosts will leave their hearts on the field in Tuesday’s football match against Cardiff City. Marvin Emnes scored the winner against Wigan, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay. Cardiff City sit in 12th position in the standings ahead of Matchday 36 and they are unlikely to book their place in the Championship play-offs. The team’s main goal is to avoid relegation to the League One and they are on the right track to meet the goal. However, seeing that they suffered a 2-1 loss to QPR in their last league match, we predict that the hosts will emerge triumphant in the Ewood Park clash.
Highlighted 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 (Cardiff City):
Cardiff City are a Welsh football club that compete in the English second tier (Championship). In 2009 they moved from Ninian Park to Cardiff City Stadium, the venue that officially holds 33,280 spectators. The Bluebirds played their first ever Premier League match on 18 August, 2013, but they were beaten by West Ham United (0-2) on their debut in the English top flight. However, a week later Fraizer Campbell (two goals) and Aron Gunnarson helped Cardiff City record their first ever win in the Premier League. The Bluebirds outplayed Manchester City back then, but they eventually dropped to the Championship at the end of the season. Fellow Welsh outfit Swansea City are considered Cardiff’s fiercest rivals and the two teams take on each other in the South Wales derby. The colour of Cardiff City’s home kit is blue, whilst they wear red shirts and shorts when playing on the travels.
