Sports Mole previews the Championship clash between Blackburn Rovers and Derby County at Ewood Park.

Blackburn Rovers host Derby County on Saturday afternoon looking to climb out of the Championship relegation zone.

A poor run of form has seen the Ewood Park outfit drop into the bottom three, and they will be eager to halt their slide with a victory over Derby.

Caretaker manager Gary Bowyer could introduce Colin Kazim-Richards to his starting lineup, with Cameron Stewart dropping to the bench.

Derby travel to Lancashire on the back of their first defeat in four games, after they suffered a last-minute loss to Ipswich Town last weekend.

The Rams had previously won three matches in a row to move up to 10th spot in the table, but with an eight-point gap between themselves and the playoff places, manager Nigel Clough will be aware that only a win will do against Rovers.

Clough could hand a start to Ben Davies after he came off the bench last weekend.

Sports Mole says: 1-1
