Blackburn vs Oxford United
Last round in League 1 in England and Blackburn host Oxford at Ewood Park.
Blackburn are promoted and the celebrations will be huge, but they are still in the champions battle. Two points behind Wigan and they know Wigan have a tough visit to Doncaster where they lost their visits in the previous seasons. Blackburn fans are still dreaming even for the title and all of them will look at their phones for positive news from Doncaster. Blackburn is expected to start the match strong with more aggression looking to score an early goal to put even more pressure on Wigan.
Oxford play only for their pride here and we saw so many times these teams are the most dangerous. It should be an easy home win on paper, one of the teams needs a victory and the other is expected to gift the points so easy. That happens only in our dreams, the reality is in most of the cases totally opposite and it finally happens a hard win or failure for the team with highly expected victory.
Blackburn will be without Ryan Ledson, who is espected to be sold to Preston, Bradley Dack will also miss this game together with Craig Conway for the hosts. Visitors are with fresh team and it looks like they will start with their best here. Maybe this will also be the last match for Oxford's top-scorer Wes Thomas, because his contract ends in the summer and it looks like it won't be extended. He will be the main threat for Blackburn tonight.
First match between them finished 4:2 in Blackburn's favour during the 1st part of the season. I expect goals today for sure and hard home victory 2:1 or 3:2. Don't think that Oxford will gift 3 points so easy.
