In the last match Blackburn suffered another defeat, losing two-one at Leeds in midweek as the pressure on Owen Coyle (and tensions from the stands) continued to grow.

A visit of Rotherham comes this weekend as Blackburn seek those first three-points of the season, which are needed with Rovers already struggling at the foot of the Championship table and having collected just two-points from Coyle’s matches.

Rotherham haven’t enjoyed the sort of start they would have wanted under their own new boss Alan Stubbs but the Millers collected a point against Nottingham Forest in midweek and will aim to build on that.

What will happen in this one though?
