Blackburn host Fulham on Saturday looking to make it five games unbeaten in the Championship.

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

Key battle

Aleksandar Mitrovic is back fit, and has 27 goals in 32 games for club and country this season. Darragh Lenihan, who missed the reverse fixture, will be the man tasked with trying to stop him adding to that tally.

Last meeting

A Tom Cairney screamer and late Mitrovic strike handed Fulham the three points at Craven Cottage, ensuring Rovers started the season with back-to-back defeats. Fulham won on their last visit to Ewood in August 2016.


Tony Harrington: North East official has shown 63 yellow cards and three reds in 25 games this season. Was the man in the middle for Rovers’ 3-2 defeat at West Brom in August.

Likely line-ups

Rovers: Christian Walton, Ryan Nyambe, Darragh Lenihan, Tosin Adarabioyo, Amari’i Bell, Elliott Bennett, Lewis Travis, Stewart Downing, Joe Rankin-Costello, Sam Gallagher, Adam Armstrong

Fulham: Marek Rodak, Cyrus Christie, Dennis Odoi, Michael Hector, Joe Bryan, Kevin McDonald, Tom Cairney, Stefan Johansen, Bobby Decordova-Reid, Aleksandar Mitrovic, Ivan Cavaleiro


Rovers may have a fine home record but are 9/5 to beat third-placed Fulham who are a 6/4 shot. The draw is 23/10. Stewart Downing is 12/1 to score first on what will be his 600th career appearance.
