It is the FA Cup “Losers” round in the Championship. Flying under the radar, there are 6 fixtures today and another 2 on Tuesday.
Blackburn and Hull are only 6 points off the playoffs. They don’t have to worry about relegation, and presumably they will be looking at their options before the transfer window closes next week, to mount a push for promotion (presuming winter transfer activity is ever positive…). These two sides face each other today. The Model gives Blackburn the edge, playing at home, and the forecast scoreline is 1-0 (9%). [Incidentally, who remembers Phil Brown’s half time team talk on the pitch…? Classic man management.]
