All you need to know: Blackburn Rovers v Norwich City

21 December 2018

Norwich City travel to Ewood Park to take on Blackburn Rovers in their final game before Christmas on Saturday (3pm).

The Canaries are unbeaten in their last ten league games and go into the match off the back of a 2-2 draw at Bristol City last week.

Blackburn have made a steady start to life back in the Sky Bet Championship and are currently 12th in the league standings.

Here's all you need to know ahead of the game:

The closest railway station is Mill Hill which is around a 15 minute walk away from Ewood Park. It is served by trains from Blackburn and the journey only takes a few minutes. Blackburn station itself is at least a couple of miles from the ground and hence a good 25-30 minute walk away. Blackburn station is served by trains from Manchester & Leeds.

Meet the opposition

After achieving promotion from League One last season, Blackburn have accrued 31 points from their 22 games so far this year which sees them just inside the top half of the league.

Rovers have only won two of their last nine league matches but have turned Ewood Park into a real fortress over the past 18 months.

They've only lost once there all season - a 2-0 defeat by Sheffield United in October - and if you combine that with their last campaign, they only have three home defeats on their record since the beginning of 2017-18.

Blackburn main threat will come from attacking duo Bradley Dack and Danny Graham. The pair have been directly involved in 24 of the 29 goals scored by the Lancashire side this year.

Last time the Canaries visited Ewood Park was on the opening day of the 2016-17 season. City, under the management of Alex Neil, cruised to a 4-1 victory that day, with Jacob Murphy, Wes Hoolahan, Cameron Jerome and Steven Naismith on the scoresheet.
