Derby County welcome Blackburn Rovers to the iPro Stadium this evening for their latest Championship clash.

The Rams are currently sixth in the table with 54 points from 32 matches, but with Birmingham City hot on their heels and just three points behind at the time of writing they will want to get another win under their belt today.

As for Blackburn, they will be smarting from their 5-1 defeat to West Ham United in the fifth round of the FA Cup on Sunday and this is a chance for them to get back to winning ways although they will have to be at their best to achieve that.

Rovers are currently 19th in the division, a full 20 points behind tonight’s opponents. However they will want to move further away from the relegation zone to ensure a stress-free end to the current campaign.

A win for Blackburn would lift them one place in the table while Derby would jump ahead of Sheffield Wednesday with three points of their own.
