Wycombe Wanderers will welcome Blackburn Rovers to Adams Park on Friday for a matchday 39 fixture in the EFL Championship.

The hosts come into this game on the back of a goalless draw with Coventry City before the international break.

Blackburn also played out a stalemate away to table-toppers Norwich City. Goals in each half from Kenny McClean and Sam Gallagher ensured that both sides had a share of the spoils.

The results did not have any impact on the respective sides' positions on the table. Wycombe Wanderers remain rotted at the bottom and are odds-on for an immediate return to League One.

Blackburn Rovers are fairly comfortable in 15th spot, having garnered 48 points from 38 games to date. The Blue and Whites will, however, be keen to get all three points to steer further clear of the chasing pack.

Wycombe Wanderers vs Blackburn Rovers Head-to-Head

This will be only the second meeting between the sides. Wycombe's long association with the lower leagues means they have never previously been in the same division as Blackburn Rovers.

Their sole meeting came in the first leg in September 2020 when Rovers ran riot in a 5-0 thrashing at Ewood Park. Adam Armstrong was the star of the show with a hat-trick.

Wycombe Wanderers have been dire in their first sojourn in the Championship. The Chairboys have just one win from their last seven league games.

Wycombe Wanderers vs Blackburn Rovers Prediction

Blackburn Rovers deploy a high and expansive style of play that sees them score and concede lots of goals. However, Wycombe's lack of bite in attack means the hosts might not capitalize on the space afforded to them.

We are predicting a fairly comfortable victory for the visitors.

Prediction: Wycombe Wanderers 0-2 Blackburn Rovers
