Blackburn winger Craig Conway returns after missing three games through suspension.

Teenager Connor Mahoney may retain his place, while Corry Evans could feature again after returning from a groin problem in midweek.

Bristol City boss Lee Johnson is likely to name an unchanged squad.

A draw will be enough to secure their Championship status and Johnson must decide whether Scott Golbourne and Scott Wagstaff will start.


  • Blackburn have won their past five games against the Robins, scoring 15 goals and conceding three
  • Bristol City have scored only one goal in their past four league trips to Ewood Park, with Rob Newman scoring the winner in a 1-0 win in December 1990.
  • Blackburn are on a run of three consecutive home league defeats – they have not lost four in a row at Ewood Park since October 2003
  • The Robins have kept only one clean sheet in their past 11 league games, a 6-0 win over bottom-of-the-table Bolton in March
  • 58% of Blackburn’s goals this season have come from set-pieces (23 of 40), the highest percentage in the league
