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.
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.
