Preview: Blackburn Rovers vs. Millwall

Sports Mole previews Saturday's mid-table Championship clash between Blackburn Rovers and Millwall at Ewood Park.

Blackburn Rovers will look to put their off-field troubles behind them when they host Millwall at Ewood Park on Saturday.

Blackburn have found themselves at the centre of a match-fixing scandal after striker DJ Campbell was arrested in relation to illegal spot-fixing activity earlier this week.

Campbell has since been bailed by the National Crime Agency, but he is expected to play no part in this weekend's match.

Rovers will also be without Ruben Rochina for the match through injury, while Leon Best and Paul Robinson will face late fitness tests.

Gary Bowyer's side, who could move into the top half with a victory, have won just once in their last five games, although their last outing saw them pick up a good point away to high-flying Queens Park Rangers courtesy of a goalless draw.

Millwall, meanwhile, will be looking to further extend the gap separating them from the relegation zone, with 22nd-placed Yeovil Town currently sitting five points behind the Lions.

Steve Lomas's side recorded a valuable 2-1 win over Wigan Athletic in their last outing, but they have struggled on their travels so far this season, winning just one of their 10 away games in all competitions.

The visitors are expected to name an unchanged side, with Martyn Waghorn again being preferred to Scott McDonald up front.
