An intriguing context awaits us on Monday night as Blackburn Rovers and Wrexham face each other in the FA Cup for the very first time in their history.

Blackburn Rovers fans have had little to cheer about over the last two months. The Riversiders picked up just one win from their last eight games, losing five and drawing two. However, Jon Dahl Tomasson's side will be buoyed by the fact that their only win in this period came in the FA Cup, where they came from behind to beat Cambrige United 5-2 in the third round.

Wrexham, meanwhile, are the team in form. The Red Dragons have suffered just two defeats in their last eight games in all competitions, winning the other six. That said, Phil Parkinson's men don't have a good record at this stage of the FA Cup. They haven't won a game in the fourth round since beating Peterborough United 4-2 in 1996-97.

Blackburn Rovers vs Wrexham Betting Tips: Both teams to score

There has never been a shortage of entertainment in Blackburn Rovers games this season. Over the course of the hosts' last nine games, bets on ''over 2.5 goals'' have won eight times. Both teams failed to score only twice.

Wrexham may be the underdogs, but they should not be written off when it comes to scoring. Phil Parkinson's men have only failed to score once in their last 12 games in all competitions, and have netted twice in two of their three FA Cup games this season.

Wrexham

Wrexham team news

Like the hosts, Wrexham were unable to get through their last game without injury.

Sam Dalby, who is yet to score in 25 Football League Two appearances this season, was substituted before the half-hour mark and is doubtful for Monday's game.

William Boyle was sent off with a red card after just 18 minutes against Newport County and will therefore serve a ban.
