BLACKBURN Rovers will look to get back on track when Hull City visit Ewood Park on Tuesday night. 

From likely line-ups to the referee, all you need to know ahead of the game can be found below.

Key battle

Hull halted their five game winless run with a point at Reading on Saturday. While Rovers will look to force the issue, the visitors will play on the counter attack, with Marcus Maddison a key threat playing from the right.

Last meeting

Derrick Williams scored the only goal of the game as Rovers made it three consecutive wins against the Tigers in August. Rovers were indebted to a first half penalty save from Christian Walton to deny Jarrod Bowen in the 1-0 victory.


Jeremy Simpson: Carnforth official has shown 67 yellow cards and six red, two of those coming in Rovers’ 1-1 draw at Swansea in December. Tony Mowbray labelled his decision to send off Bradley Dack as “unbelievable”.

Likely line-ups

Rovers: Christian Walton, Darragh Lenihan, Tosin Adarabioyo, Derrick Williams, Ryan Nyambe, Lewis Travis, Stewart Downing, Amar’i Bell, Sam Gallagher, Ben Brereton, Adam Armstrong

Hull: George Long, Leo Da Silva Lopes, Robbie McKenzie, Sean McLoughlin, Callum Elder, Dan Batty, George Honeyman, Jackson Irvine, Mallik Wilks, Marcus Maddison, Tom Eaves


Rovers will look to get back to winning ways against a Hull side who haven’t won in the league since New Year’s Day. The hosts have been made 4/5 favourites, with the Tigers priced at 7/2 and the draw 13/5. Rovers are 10/3 to win and both teams to score.
