Having won all three of their matches in league and cup without conceding a goal, the Cherries were finally pipped by much-fancied Nottingham Forest in midweek after surrendering a second-half lead.
That result saw Eddie Howe's side lose their place at the top of the league, but they will still be pleased with how they have started the season overall, with a commanding victory over Huddersfield Town on the opening day setting the tone.
Whether they can sustain their form and make a strong push for the playoffs this season remains to be seen, but Saturday's match away to a side that is also expected to be challenging for the top six could give some clues as to how serious a contender Bournemouth are.
It is looking increasingly like new signing Callum Wilson will be crucial to any success the Cherries do have this season, with the striker having netted three times in three starts since his summer move.
He is expected to be joined by Yann Kermorgant up front once more, with Eddie Howe able to name an unchanged side with no new injury concerns.
Blackburn also tasted defeat in the league for the first time this season on Tuesday, losing 3-1 to Norwich City at Carrow Road.
However, they were also stunned by Scunthorpe United in the first round of the League Cup and will know that improvement is needed if they are to reach the playoffs this season.
However, Rudy Gestede is quickly establishing himself as every bit as important to the team as his strike partner having scored 10 goals in his last 10 games stretching back to the previous campaign.
That duo are once again expected to lead the way for the hosts this weekend, with Bowyer having no new fitness concerns to worry about.
Possible starting lineups
Blackburn: Robinson; Lowe, Baptiste, Hanley, Olsson; Cairney, Evans, Williamson, Conway; Gestede, Rhodes
Bournemouth: Camp; Smith, Elphick, Cook, Daniels; Ritchie, O'Kane, Arter, Stanislas; Wilson, Kermorgant
Sports Mole says: 2-1
