Paul Lambert is hoping to lead Blackburn to a fifth straight home win in the league when they host Leeds


Paul Lambert looks set to name an unchanged Blackburn squad from their win at home to Birmingham.

Tony Watt is likely to retain his starting spot in the week he scored and won a call-up to Scotland’s squad.

Leeds striker Chris Wood could be in action for the first time since his hamstring injury in January.

Several of Steve Evans’ squad have suffered minor knocks while midfielders Toumani Diagouraga and Stuart Dallas are pushing for recalls.


  • Blackburn Rovers have won their last five league games against Leeds United, keeping three clean sheets in the process.
  • In fact, Leeds are winless in seven against Blackburn, losing five and drawing twice.
  • Blackburn are currently on a run of four league wins in a row at Ewood Park, their best run since February 2010 (also four wins). They last won five in a row in March 2006.
  • Since a 4-0 drubbing at Brighton, Leeds have won two in a row – the Whites have not won three successive league games since February 2015.
  • Leeds striker Mirco Antenucci has contributed four goals in his last two Championship games for Leeds (three goals, one assist), as many as he had contributed in 24 games before that.
