To be played on Saturday 22nd April 2017 at 16:00. Venue: Molineux Stadium, Wolverhampton
Odds: Wolves 6/5, Draw 23/10, Blackburn 23/10
Wolverhampton Wanderers face Blackburn Rovers this weekend in what could be a fiercely competitive Championship encounter.
Rovers visit Molineux in desperate need of all three points - as their quest to avoid relegation intensifies with just three games remaining. Tony Mowbray's side currently find themselves inside the bottom three on 44 points, just one behind fourth-bottom Nottingham Forest and three behind Birmingham City in 20th position.
Wolves, after a five game winning run led to a mini-resurgence during March and early April, now find themselves free from any previous relegation concern ahead of the game.
Former Blackburn boss Paul Lambert is expected to name a fellow former Ewood Park man in his line-up - with January signing from Rovers, Ben Marshall, anticipated to take a place in the Wolves midfield.

However, standout Wanderer Helder Costa remains an injury doubt and is unlikely to feature against Mowbray's strugglers.
Ahead of the trip to 16th placed Wolves, Mowbray may be able to welcome back Charlie Mulgrew for a surprise early return from an ankle ligament problem earlier in the month - an injury that was believed to have the former Molineux man sidelined for the remainder of the campaign.

However, whether a Mulgrew return is enough to stave off a Rovers relegation to League One remains to be seen.
Following Wolves, Blackburn host Aston Villa before a final day away fixture against Brentford.
