Blackburn Rovers head to Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.

From likely line-ups to key men and the referee, all you need to know can be found below.

Key battle

Barry Bannan was pivotal in Wednesday’s impressive win at Leeds United last weekend. Without Corry Evans, Rovers will be looking for Lewis Travis to try and stop the Scot’s creativity at source.

Last meeting

Rovers came from behind to win for the first time in more than 12 months, as Tosin Adarabioyo and John Buckley struck in the final stages of a dramatic game at Ewood in November after Jacob Murphy put the visitors ahead.


Jarred Gillet: Australian official has taken charge of 18 games this season, dishing out 64 yellow cards and one red. Took charge of Rovers’ 1-0 win over Middlesbrough back in August.

Likely line-ups

Sheffield Wednesday: Cameron Dawson, Osaze Urhoghide, Dominic Iorfa, Julien Borner, Morgan Fox, Kieran Lee, Barry Bannan, Massimo Luongo, Adam Reach, Jacob Murphy, Atdhe Nuhiu

Rovers: Christian Walton, Ryan Nyambe, Darragh Lenihan, Tosin Adarabioyo, Amari’i Bell, Lewis Travis, Stewart Downing, Lewis Holtby, Joe Rothwell, Adam Armstrong, Sam Gallagher


Wednesday might have lost their last two home games, but they come in to this one as 4/5 favourites after impressive wins on the road at Brighton and Leeds. Rovers, without a win in six matches, are 7/2 while the draw is 5/2. Adam Armstrong is 10/1 to score first.
