History of the Wolverhampton Wanderers v Blackburn Rovers fixture

Blackburn R. pack their bags to visit Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux on Wednesday 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 8 of the 42 games.

The previous match played between the two at Molineux was within the last three years, in April 2001, when they played out a goalless draw in a League Division One match.
