Market: Luton Town double chance
Odds: 4/6 @ 888sport
Looking to make another major Championship statement on Monday evening, Blackburn will welcome a high-flying Luton to Ewood Park.
Starting with the hosts, while Blackburn might have marked their return from the World Cup’s winter break tipped as a leading promotion contender, the Rovers have come crashing back down to earth in some style. Last seen putting in another downbeat display as they suffered a 1-0 loss at home against local rivals Burnley, Jon Dahl Tomasson’s men are enduring a nightmare run of form. Freefalling their way down the Championship table, the Lancashire-based outfit have now failed to win any of their last eight straight appearances against second-tier opposition – a run that stems all the way back to March 15th. Watching their FA Cup adventure come to an end at the hands of Sheffield United last month following an action-packed 3-2 loss at Bramall Lane, Blackburn have also shown some extended issues on home soil. in fact, including a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Norwich on April 7th, Tomasson’s side have failed to win any of their last four appearances at Ewood Park.
As for the visitors, already clinching another famous play-off spot this season, there is no doubt that Luton are in the midst of a remarkable purple patch. Only continuing to gain a string of plaudits, the Hatters are seen as a genuine contender when they get their play-off adventure underway this month. Riding what has been a stellar wave of momentum and really gaining a fearsome reputation from across the Championship, Rob Edwards’ side should be smelling the chance to make another statement here. Last seen putting in a stellar display on home soil as they claimed a 2-1 victory against fellow top-six contenders Middlesbrough, the former Watford boss finds his side enjoying a 12-match unbeaten run across all competitions. With that iconic romp stemming all the way back to February 18th, Luton should be relishing a trip to Ewood Park on Monday evening. Picking up a 2-0 victory in their reverse meeting at Kenilworth Road on September 17th, we are expecting an away double chance.
