Blackburn vs AFC Wimbledon by Hassy

Two sides in differing forms face each other at Ewood Park on Saturday and as form suggests I expect a routine home win. Tuesday night saw Blackburn continue their winning run with a 1-0 win against an always solid Scunthorpe team. On the same night Wimbledon’s poor start to the season continued as they failed to beat Gillingham at home, despite both leading and playing against ten-men for over 45 minutes. After last season's relegation Blackburn are starting to confirm many people’s pre-season calculations and they are finally starting to build some very solid form. Mowbray’s men have won each of their last four matches. Three of those wins were away from home but the home win, a 4-1 win against MK Dons was the most emphatic.


Blackburn boss Tony Mowbray has reported mixed news on the injury front ahead of AFC Wimbledon's visit to Ewood Park.Winger Craig Conway (hip) was back in training on Thursday. However, on-loan West Brom midfielder Rekeem Harper (thigh) is awaiting the scan results on a problem that will keep him sidelined. Blackburn continue to be without defensive trio Scott Wharton and Ryan Nyambe (both ankle) and Darragh Lenihan (foot).


Visitors Wimbledon are in poor form and are struggling to stop goals and score goals at the same time. They're still waiting for their first goal on the road after three games and they lost their last two away games pretty weakly. A home draw against Gillingham in their last game will be considered a poor result so confidence won't be the greatest either. The visitors have only managed to take five points from seven games and currently hold the 20th position in the league standings. AFC Wimbledon could welcome back defender Paul Robinson. The experienced centre-back missed the 1-1 midweek draw against Gillingham after suffering a head injury against Portsmouth last weekend, but has been given the medical all-clear by a neurologist. Darius Charles (knee) and Tom Soares (thigh) are edging closer to first-team returns but are unlikely to be involved. Jimmy Abdou serves the final game of a three-match suspension following his dismissal at Blackpool earlier this month.


Blackburn will see this game as a nice opportunity to keep the good form going and snatch their fifth win on the trot. Against a Wimbledon side who have the lowest shots on goal in the division I make this the bet of the day.
