Preview: Bournemouth vs. Blackburn Rovers

Sports Mole previews Saturday's Championship game between Bournemouth and Blackburn Rovers.

Bournemouth face Blackburn Rovers on Saturday in the first meeting between the teams since a 2004 League Cup tie.

The Cherries' boss Eddie Howe played, and won a penalty that day, as the then-Premier League side were knocked out.

Nowadays it is a different story for Rovers, who have failed to win in their last three games and have not won on the road since April.

Bournemouth, meanwhile, are unbeaten in their last two. They lost a two-goal lead before escaping with a 3-3 draw against Middlesbrough in their last game.
