Footymad preview History of the West Ham United v Blackburn Rovers fixture

Blackburn Rovers face a trip to West Ham United at Boleyn Ground on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Rovers will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in January 2010, when they played out a goalless draw in a Premier League match.
