15 Points For Blackburn To Play For (14/4/17)

15 Points For Blackburn To Play For (14/4/17)

Blackburn Rovers have only 15 points left to play for in this year's battle in the Championship.

With the games dwindling down now at the real business end of the campaign as Blackburn Rovers find themselves heading towards the end of May, sitting in 22nd place in the top relegation spot in the Championship, all is certainly not lost yet when it comes to avoiding relegation this season.

With 15 points left to play for and a couple of potential six pointers against sides in and around us in the table, the fact we now sit four points off Bristol City in safety, and five off Nottingham Forest and Burton Albion, we have made life difficult for ourselves with three straight losses, but a quick run of straight victories could dramatically alter our position in the table.

With only five games remaining though, that turn in form needs to come sooner rather than later, especially with our losing streak of late as we have lost ground now.

Forest and Bristol City could be particularly key now.
