Blackburn Rovers face a big test against the form of Reading in the Championship on Tuesday. The visitors are currently top of the Championship table after making a near-perfect start to the season.

Blackburn Rovers Form

Blackburn Rovers have had a somewhat inconsistent start to the new Championship season, with a series of early highs and lows leaving them 10th in the table. 

Tony Mowbray’s team have proven that they are capable of turning the engines on in attack, scoring 13 goals in their three victories. But they also have three defeats and a draw to their name.

Blackburn showed their attacking quality at the weekend during a 4-0 away win over Coventry City. The goals came from Adam Armstrong (2), Harvey Elliott and Sam Gallagher. 

Armstrong has made a fantastic start to the new season, bagging seven goals in as many Championship appearances.
