Date/Time: Saturday 9th March 2019 (Kick-off 1:00 PM CET).
A North West derby takes place early on Saturday afternoon and it is going to be a big day for both Blackburn Rovers and Preston North End.
Only 4 points separate these rivals, but it does feel like we are reaching the stage of the season where every point being dropped is ending the chance of some teams in making the Play Offs. That is going to be the case for the two teams involved in this one on Saturday with the top five looking pretty secure and one place left for teams to chase for the Play Off opportunity.
Blackburn Rovers look to have had a long season slow them down as they struggle for the consistency at a higher level than what they were playing at last season in League One. At the same time it feels like Preston North End are getting stronger and their run of 4 away wins in a row in the League where they have scored two or more goals may give them the edge in this fixture.
The home team have been strong at Ewood Park, but they have lost 5 of 6 overall and that includes losing their last couple of games here. In those games Blackburn Rovers have failed to score and I think Preston North End can be backed on the Asian Handicap which is essentially a 'Draw No Bet' selection.
