Blackburn will be looking to extend their winning streak

Blackburn Rovers host West Brom at Ewood Park in the EFL Championship on Sunday, with both sides having contrasting starts to their season.

Blackburn are third in the league, having won both their opening games of the campaign. Jon Dahl Tomasson's side have had a flawless start to the season, having won their three games across all competitions without conceding a single goal. They will look to continue their good form with a win against West Brom on the weekend.

West Brom, on the other hand, are currently 19th in the league, having drawn their opening two games of the campaign. Steve Bruce's side will be going into the game off the back of a 1-0 win against Sheffield United in the EFL Cup and will hope to take that momentum into the game against Blackburn on Sunday.
