Blackburn Rovers will be looking for crucial Premier League points this weekend when they host a Norwich side that sit comfortably in mid-table on Saturday afternoon, as punters look to pile in on Rover’s price of 11/10 with Ladbrokes.
Rovers are currently 19th in the table and three points adrift of safety, so this really is a game they need to win. Home games are often the key to survival and this is one they need to get three points from.
The atmosphere inside the ground may not be helped by a planned protest against the board and management before the game though, sot the players will have to dig deep to pull a winning performance out of the bag.
Things were much more positive for Blackburn a few weeks ago of course. After back to back wins over Wolves and Sunderland, Steve Kean’s m en were six points clear of the relegation zone.
However, five successive defeats have followed, with a 3-0 defeat at Swansea City last time out an extremely disappointing afternoon for them. With four games to go, it is now or never time in terms of their battle for Premier League survival.

As for Norwich, they may well have been brushed aside at home to Manchester City last time out, losing 6-1 at Carrow Road, but they are still comfortably in mid-table and Blackburn would love to swap positions with them.
The fact that Norwich fans clapped their team off after the 6-1 defeat says it all about the season Paul Lambert’s team have had. The recent win at Tottenham took them up to 43 points after all, meaning they are all but assured their Premier League status for next season.
When these two teams met earlier in the season, they played out a entertaining 3-3 draw at Carrow Road and this could be another tight contest. Blackburn are the team with the pressure on them though, so it is a much more important afternoon for them.
This one gets underway at 3pm on Saturday afternoon.
