Blackburn Rovers host Hull City at Ewood Park in a midweek fixture in the EFL Championship on Tuesday night.

Blackburn have only lost once in six matches this season and are coming off of a 2-2 draw against Luton Town and are tenth in the table.

Hull scored four goals in a decisive opening-day win at Preston North End, but have not scored since, going five straight games without a goal, sitting 20th in the table.

Team news

Midfielder Ian Poveda has been ruled out after missing out against Luton due to a hamstring injury. Bradley Johnson and Joe Rankin Costello remain sidelined, but both are back in training and Hayden Carter returns following a one-match ban.

Josh Magennis and Mallik Wilks returned to action last Saturday, meaning George Honeyman is Hull's only confirmed absentee for this clash. Matthew Smith could be handed a start with George Moncur dropping to the bench.

Predicted line-ups

Blackburn Rovers: Kaminski; Nyambe, Ayala, Lenihan, Pickering; Clarkson, Travis; Dolan, Buckley, Diaz; Gallagher

Hull City: Ingram; Elder, Greaves, Bernard, Coyle; Huddlestone, Docherty; Wilks, Smith, Lewis-Potter; Magennis

Ones to watch

Tyrhys Dolan

Was brilliant with his early touches to excite the crowd and converted from the penalty shot after struggling early in the match. He worked his socks off against the Hatters and he gives his side something unique in attack.

The entire Hull defence

With the Tigers well-documented struggles to score, the back-line of Callum Elder, Jacob Greaves, Di'Shon Bernard and Lewie Coyle will need to be at their best, as they have been so often in this young season.

Previous meetings

Blackburn has won four consecutive matches against Hull, outscoring the Tigers 8-0 in that span.

Rovers shut out Hull 3-0 in February 2020, scoring all three goals in the final 17 minutes courtesy of Darragh Lenihan, Adam Armstrong and Dominic Samuel.

The match will be shown live on Sky Sports Arena with kick-off set for 19:45 BST.
