Seeking to move into the playoff places in the EFL Championship table, Blackburn Rovers welcome Fulham to the Ewood Park Stadium on Wednesday.

The visitors head into the game on a run of four consecutive wins and will be looking to remain within touching distance of first-placed Bournemouth.

Blackburn continued their upsurge in form as they secured a 2-1 win over Derby County at the Pride Park Stadium.

Prior to that, Tony Mowbray’s side claimed a 2-0 victory over Reading to end their run of three games without a win.

With 23 points from 15 outings, Blackburn Rovers are currently seventh in the EFL Championship table, one point off the playoff places.

Meanwhile, Fulham maintained their blistering run of results as they secured a 3-0 win over West Bromwich Albion last time out.

Marco Silva’s men have now won each of their most recent four games on the bounce, scoring 13 goals and keeping three clean sheets.

This solid run has seen Fulham rise to second place on the log, five points behind first-placed Bournemouth.
