Sports Mole previews Saturday's Championship encounter between Blackburn Rovers at Bristol City at Ewood Park.

Bristol City can make it three consecutive wins in the Championship on Saturday when they travel to Ewood Park to face Blackburn Rovers.

Manager Sean O'Driscoll has had an instant impact on the strugglers with two wins from his first three games in charge.

Meanwhile, Michael Appleton will be looking for his second victory since he took over at Rovers following last weekend's FA Cup triumph over Derby County.

New signing Anton Forrester could feature for the home side following his recent move from Everton.

City captain Cole Skuse is a major doubt with a knee injury, while Neil Kilkenny is also missing with an ankle problem.
