History of the Blackburn Rovers v Everton fixture

Blackburn R. prepare to entertain Everton at Ewood Park on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Rovers are clearly on top, having won 38 and lost only 17 of the 69 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Ewood Park was less than a year ago, in December 2004, when they played out a goalless draw in a Premiership match.
