History of the Blackburn Rovers v Charlton Athletic fixture

Blackburn R. prepare to entertain Charlton Athletic at Ewood Park on Monday evening, looking to continue an impressive record. The Rovers are clearly on top, having won 16 and lost only 6 of the 30 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Ewood Park was just last season, in October 2003, with Charlton Ath. inflicting a narrow 0-1 defeat upon the Rovers in a Premiership match.

Recent respective form guides

Blackburn Rovers will be hoping to improve on their poor home form, collecting just 4 draws from the last six contests. While Rovers have scored 7, a worringly large 12 have been leaked at the other end.

Charlton Ath.'s away form is none too clever either, coming away with three points on 3 occassions, but drawing 1 and losing 2. Only 5 goals have been registered in this time, with 6 leaked at the wrong end.

Blackburn R. are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 19 points from 21 matches. Charlton Ath.'s 31 points from 21 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 8th position.

FootyMad's prediction ...

Nothing seems to be going right for the Rovers at home recently, and I can see no immediate turn around in fortunes as the Addicks come away with an easy victory. Away win

Sequence statistics:
Blackburn R. Drawn last 2 games at home.
Failed to win in previous 8 home matches.
Charlton Ath. Undefeated in last 3 away games.
