Blackburn Rovers closed their 2021/22 season in a disappointing manner. In their last six matches, they could earn only two wins to go with three defeats and a draw.

With more than a month of the transfer window still left, the club will be hoping to complete some smart deals to help assemble a potent squad.

Hartlepool United, on the other hand spent their 2021/22 season in the fourth division of English football having gained promotion the season before. They finished 17th in League Two and will be content with the fact that they avoided the relegation zone by a safe margin.
