Returning Rovers to roar past Lions

Tony Mowbray

All 12 of the latest round of Championship games take place on a super Saturday this weekend, with Blackburn arguably the side to watch.

Blackburn v Millwall – Home Win @ 6/4

The Ewood Park faithful will welcome back Championship football with open arms and Rovers will fancy themselves to get the better of Millwall.

Despite an opening 2-2 draw at Ipswich, Tony Mowbray’s men were the better side at Portman Road and will have been encouraged by their performance.

The Lions were one of the form teams in the second half of last year’s Championship but took plenty of time to get going and had to wait until January 20 for their first away victory.

Neil Harris’ side let a two-goal lead go against Middlesbrough in their opener and could come unstuck in Lancashire.

Swansea v Preston – Home Win @ 27/20

There could also be home joy for Swansea as they welcome Preston for Graham Potter’s first competitive game at the Liberty Stadium.

The Swans came from behind to win at Sheffield United on the opening weekend and showed both spirit and quality, having seen both questioned over the summer.

PNE are a handy team in possession and have a habit of frustrating their opponents. However, they were a touch sluggish in their opening 1-0 win over Queens Park Rangers.

Swansea’s dynamism could give them an advantage and in front of an expectant home crowd, three points for Potter’s men looks a very good price.

Derby v Leeds – Over 3.5 goals @ 12/5

The late game promises to be a cracker with Frank Lampard getting a chance to take on one of the modern icons of football management, Marcelo Bielsa.

Tom Lawrence’s late show at Reading ensured Lampard made a winning start to life as a manager but he will have been impressed by the Whites’ swashbuckling win over Stoke.

Bielsa’s unpredictability means it is uncertain how he will line his team up at Pride Park.

Fireworks are likely though and it could be a shrewd bet to back plenty of goals in this one.
