Our prediction for this Championship match:
Blackburn Rovers will look to stay in the playoffs berth when they welcome Stoke City to their Ewood Park on Monday afternoon. The Riversiders aim to put an end to their four-game winless run, and they are likely to leave their hearts on the field. Fit-again Chile attacker Ben Brereton, who found the net in a 2-1 loss to Peterbough, will be the man to watch in the home team, while midfielder Tayo Edun serves a one-game ban.
The Potters, on the other hand, are stuck in the middle of the table with 55 points in their pocket. Stoke City failed to impress in a 1-0 loss to Bristol City, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered. As for the visiting side, all Maja, Sawyers, and Campbell are pushing for a start, while all Souttar, Moore, Powell, and Thompson remain on the sidelines with injuries.
