Wrexham vs Blackburn prediction

Blackburn Rovers head into this game on a shocking run of form with seven EFL Championship games without a win for Tomasson as they slip towards a possible relegation battle.

Wrexham are on a high, and despite their focus being on promotion again, they look well placed to pull off a shock result against a team two divisions above them.

Prediction: Blackburn Rovers 1-2 Wrexham
