Anything but a win here would thus compromise the direct promotion to Championship for Tony Mowbray and his men. They will be up against the Posh who have not been enjoying a better form themselves of late.

As the matter of fact, Peterborough lost back-to-back league ties to Plymouth Argyle and Rochdale. They dropped out of the top six in the league standings as a result and they will also be desperate to clinch points here given that the promotional playoffs are now three points away.

Blackburn Rovers vs Peterborough United: Head-to-head

This will only be the fifth head to head meeting between Blackburn Rovers and Peterborough United.

The Riversiders were more successful so far, winning three and losing one of these four.

We just have to mention that each of the past four H2H ties saw five or more goals and both teams on the scoreline.

Blackburn Rovers vs Peterborough United: Prediction

We definitely do not expect to witness the continuation of such high-scoring trend in H2H games between these two sides. The match importance, as well as the current form suggest a very close encounter which is likely to be decided by one or even none goals.

Blackburn are rock-solid at the back and they actually conceded just twice in last six league ties. Given that the Posh were struggling for goals badly of late, we can easily see a clean sheer for Tony Mowbray’s men here. You can back this bet at the 2.10 odds.

Since the hosts were anything but prolific up front recently, braver punters could shoot for the correct score pick, backing the 1-0 scoreline at 7.00.
