Blackburn Rovers boss Tony Mowbray says his team need to learn their lessons as they prepare to face playoff hopefuls Queens Park Rangers (QPR 6/5, Draw 13/5, Blackburn Rovers 23/10 – Match Betting).

Both teams can climb back into the top six with a victory, with the R’s eighth in the table and Blackburn just behind them.

Only one point separates the two teams, but it is QPR that have the better form, with Mark Warburton’s side winning two of their previous three.

On the other hand, Mowbray’s men have not won any of their previous three in the second tier, losing to Huddersfield Town and Blackpool before they drew 2-2 with Coventry on Saturday.

Mowbray’s side have struggled to hold onto leads they have built up and he says they need to learn their lessons quickly.

He told the Lancashire Telegraph: “The reality is, we’re playing another game now, and we could go 2-0 up and draw 2-2. But we’ve talked about it until the cows come home, and yet they have to play the game; they have to learn as they go along.

“They have to learn when to slow it down; they have to know when to buy a foul or take their time on a throw-in. They have to know all of these things.

“Generally, the best way to do it is to play the games.”

Tenth-placed Luton Town are also looking to sneak into the top six on Tuesday as they prepare to travel to Derby County (Derby 11/5, Draw 21/10, Luton 29/20 – Match Betting).

The Rams’ recent point deduction means they are rock bottom of the Championship, but they are in good form of late, with Wayne Rooney’s men losing just one of their last five games.

On Tuesday, League-leaders Bournemouth are also in action, with Stoke City hosting them at 19:45 (Stoke 7/4, Draw 23/10, Bournemouth 17/10 – Match Betting).

The Potters were beaten at the weekend but sit fifth, while the Cherries are three points clear at the top of the table.

Scott Parker’s men are unbeaten in eight matches, but the former Fulham boss will be unable to call upon the services of David Brooks, Adam Smith and Lewis Cook.

Elsewhere in the Championship, Bristol City host Nottingham Forest at 19:45, while Sheffield United tackle Millwall.
