Footymad preview History of the Wolverhampton Wanderers v Blackburn Rovers fixture

Blackburn Rovers face a trip to Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux on Friday evening, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Rovers will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 25 and win only 10 of the 45 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Molineux was less than a year ago, in March 2012, as the visitors ran out cosy 0-2 winners in a Premier League match.
