Blackburn are worthy opponents in the Carabao Cup

Blackburn Rovers have had a pretty productive start to their season. They have got themselves within two points of the play-off positions in the Championship and their Carabao Cup form has seen some high scoring with a 1-5 away win at Carlisle Utd in the last round and a 4-1 defeat of Lincoln City in the first round.

Premier League clubs are already looking at Bradley Dack who was the League One player of the year last season and he has started in impressive form in the Championship with four goals so far. Dack scored two goals and had an assist in the match against Carlisle. Adam Armstrong is another of their players in form who made it 11 goals in 23 appearances when Blackburn played Carlisle. Danny Graham didn't play in the last round of the Carabao Cup, but he has formed a good partnership with Dack and is the experienced striker in Blackburn's squad.

Kasey Palmer is on loan from Chelsea and he scored in the last two rounds of the Carabao Cup for Blackburn so is a likely starter. Joe Nuttall may also feature as an attacker.

Tony Mowbray has the players' confidence up after their 2-3 win over Stoke City in the league and Blackburn have only lost one game this season to Bristol Rovers on 2nd September. Blackburn were 3-0 up though against Stoke in their last match and had to hang on for the win, so seeing out wins might be something that Blackburn would find hard if they do get in front at Dean Court.
