Placed fourth in the table, Blackburn Rovers have 43 points from 28 matches in the Championship. They have won only one of their last five games in the league.
Blackburn Rovers welcome Birmingham City to the Ewood Park for a FA Cup fourth round contest on Saturday. Both sides would welcome the break from Championship action due to their indifferent form in recent games. In the standings though they might be sitting at contrasting ends of the table, however, the reality is different. Both clubs are not in best of forms and will be happy to keep their league responsibilities aside for the moment.
Placed fourth in the table, Blackburn Rovers have 43 points from 28 matches in the Championship. They have won only one of their last five games in the league, drawn one and lost the remaining three. It goes without saying that form is not exactly on the home side. They are heading into this game on the back of playing out a 1-1 draw with Bristol City. It was the first time in the Championship this season Blackburn were involved in a draw. They had won 14 and lost 13 prior to that in the league.
Meanwhile, things are not looking good for Birmingham City, who are now flirting with relegation. They are languishing at the 19th spot in the Championship table with 32 points from 28 matches. Besides, Birmingham are in the middle of a terrible run in the division, having lost their last five Championship games. Hence, they will be happy to take their mind off the Championship and will look at FA Cup as a welcome distraction.
