In their last six away matches in the Championship, Blackburn won twice, while also recording one draw. They endured three defeats in this run, with a scoreline from these matches saying nine goals conceded and nine scored.
In a season where everything runs absolutely smoothly Blackburn might be able to surprise. However, a finish inside the top half of the Championship looks the most realistic scenario.
