Recent respective form guides

Blackburn Rovers have only collected 1 win and 3 draws from the last six home games played. These low-scoring games have seen just 5 goals scored and conceded.

Bolton Wanderers's away form is none too clever either, picking up two good wins, but losing three, from the last six. While the The Trotters have hit 6 goals, 9 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Blackburn Rovers are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 35 points from 34 matches.

Bolton Wanderers lie just outside the playoff positions in the Barclays Premier League, picking up 46 from their 34 games so far.
