  • Competition: Championship
  • KO: 20:45 CET
  • Venue: Ewood Park (Blackburn, Lancashire)

Following the death of HRH The Queen and the subsequent postponement of the weekend fixtures, The Championship resumes on Tuesday evening as Blackburn Rovers welcomes Watford to Ewood Park. 

Blackburn currently sits seventh in the table, collecting 12 points from their opening 8 matches, while Watford lies sixth, one point ahead of their hosts.

The home side have been somewhat inconsistent thus far, winning 4 and losing 4, while their home form is not great, with just 3 wins in their last 10 home Championship contests since the end of last season.

Visiting Watford will also need to find more consistent form if they are to make an immediate return to the Premier League, having won just 1 of their last 5 league outings.

Blackburn vs Watford Betting Tips: Watford or draw

Two relatively strong but inconsistent sides, both teams will harbour realistic promotion hopes this season and this fixture looks a tough one to call, particularly given Rovers' up and down home form, which yields no significant patterns in either of the relative goal markets. For example, 3 of their last 6 at home have seen over 2.5 goals, the other 3, of course, under. Just 2 of those 6 saw BTTS while Rovers won 2 and lost 4. 

Watford, in contrast, have at least been consistent on their travels, well, consistently picking up draws. All 4 of their away matches have finished level with 3 of those matches finishing with the same 1:1 scoreline.

The visitors have won each of their last 3 matches against Blackburn with BTTS and over 2.5 goals occurring in 4 of the last 5 meetings however recent stats don´t necessarily suggest a repeat should be expected.

Ultimately, this looks a particularly tricky fixture to predict, and while Rovers have yet to draw this season, Watford´s away form suggests a low-scoring and tight contest that could end with a fifth successive road draw for the Hornets.
