The Championship returns this weekend after the conclusion of the international break. Blackburn Rovers are set to host Luton Town on Saturday afternoon.

Blackburn Rovers have had mixed results in the Championship so far. They won their first game, a 2-1 victory over Swansea City before playing a 1-1 draw against Millwall in their next game. The Riversiders then beat struggling Nottingham Forest 2-1 before losing to West Bromwich by the same scoreline.

The Blue and Whites played a 1-1 draw against Middlesbrough last time out and have now picked up eight points in five games so far. They have now spent 10 years away from the top flight and will be hoping to get better results in a quest to return to the Premier League.

Like their hosts, Luton Town have been inconsistent this campaign and sit just a point behind their Saturday opponents. Luton Town picked up a 3-0 victory against Peterborough United on opening day before losing 3-2 to West Brom in their second game. They beat Barnsley 1-0 in their next game but have failed to win any of their following two games.

A 5-0 loss to Birmingham City was followed by a goalless draw against Sheffield United. The Hatters now sit 12th in the league table and will look to return to winning ways on Saturday.
