Having initially looked like they may be able to challenge for a playoff spot in the Championship, Cardiff’s season has unravelled since the middle of November.

Just 16 points have been collected from 17 matches, with the Bluebirds losing on 11 occasions to leave them in mid-table and 11 points adrift of the top six.

With only 14 matches remaining, getting back into the mix is realistically out of their reach, the focus for Erol Bulut’s side to avoid getting dragged into a relegation battle.

Although there is an eight-point margin to 22nd-placed Queens Park Rangers, the Bluebirds are now one of the most out-of-form sides in the entire division.

Saturday’s 4-1 defeat at Norwich City has heaped the pressure on Bulut, who will feel less secure in his position in the dugout than he has throughout this campaign.

Overcoming Blackburn would go a long way to securing safety, yet the same can be said for Rovers who are beginning a new era under John Eustace.

Four points have been collected from his opening three matches, although he would have been disappointed to give up a two-goal lead at rivals Preston North End at the weekend and have to settle for a point.

On a positive note, it was a rare point away from home for a side that had lost their previous six away matches in the Championship.

Eustace will be confident that his players can build on halting the improvement of Preston as they prepare to face opponents who are without a home victory in five games.

Cardiff City vs. Blackburn Rovers Head to head

In the 41 previous meetings between these two teams, Cardiff have claimed 11 victories while Blackburn have won 15, and they have drawn in 15. They have scored 57 goals apiece in the process.

Cardiff City Team News

Either David Turnbull or Ryan Wintle should be restored in midfield, while Kion Etete may get the nod over Rubin Colwill in attack.

Ollie Tanner could also come back into the side after his recent return, but Aaron Ramsey is a doubt due to a knock that kept him out of the match at Carrow Road.

Blackburn Rovers Team News

John Fleck is expected to miss out for Blackburn after his early withdrawal against Preston, with Jake Garrett in line to take his place.

Ben Chrisene could replace Ryan Hedges at left wing-back, but Eustace may be against making further changes if the remainder of the squad are fit.
