Blackburn Rovers have the opportunity to move into second in the Championship on Wednesday evening when they make the trip to relegation-threatened Hull City (Match Betting – Hull 23/10, Draw 23/10, Blackburn 13/10), while there is also an important clash between Reading and Luton Town.
Rovers have been in exceptional form in the Championship over the past couple of months and they head to the MKM Stadium (19:45 KO) looking to extend their 10-match unbeaten run (W8 D2) to 11.
It has been an incredible run for Tony Mowbray’s men, who embarked on this purple patch of form after suffering a 7-0 hammering at the hands of Fulham at Ewood Park on November 3.
A draw would be enough to send Blackburn into second, as Bournemouth are only ahead of them on goal difference, and the Lancashire outfit will feel confident they can get the better of 19th-place Hull.
The Tigers are only four points above the relegation zone and they have lost their last four matches across all competitions, while they haven’t tasted success since the 2-1 triumph over Millwall on November 27.
Blackburn’s last three away games have resulted in victories, all of those coming to nil, and another win with a clean sheet can be backed at 13/5 with Betfred.
In Wednesday’s 20:00 clash, 21st-place Reading will be hoping to give their survival hopes a boost when they welcome 15th-place Luton Town to the Madejski Stadium (Reading 16/5, Draw 13/5, Luton 10/11 – Match Betting).
The Royals are only one place and three points above the bottom three and defeat this evening would serve as a huge incentive for 22nd-place Peterborough United, who will have two games in hand on their relegation rivals.
Reading are on a six-game winless run across all competitions, which includes a 7-0 thrashing at the hands of Fulham, and they face a Luton side looking to extend their unbeaten streak to five.
The Hatters secured a thrilling 3-2 victory over Bournemouth last time out and Nathan Jones’ men may still harbour hopes of a play-off finish this season, with 10 points currently the gap to Middlesbrough in sixth.
