Blackburn Rovers travel to AFC Wimbledon looking to remain top of League One whilst the host are looking to climb further away from the relegation zone.

Blackburn look to hold on to the top spot in League One with a win in the tough fixture away to Wimbledon on Tuesday night.

The Rovers are currently leading the League One standings by the virtue of a point against second placed Shrewsbury and 3 points adrift of third placed Wigan. But the bad news is that Wigan played 3 games fewer than the other teams, so particularly Blackburn cannot afford to drop points against teams from the bottom half of the league table.

Blackburn do have the momentum heading into the encounter as they are coming on the back of a three match winning streak. Also, they have been lethal in front of goal, netting exactly twice in their last four games.

Blackburn are an attacking oriented side and are lethal in both home and away games. They are the highest goal scorers in League One this season.

Wimbledon are 18th in the league table and there is only a 2 points separating them from the bottom four. So, the Dons are in some sort of pressure to deliver positive results in home games.

The Dons’ head-coach Neal Ardley can feel positive at this time, with the four of the last five at the Kingsmeadow ending in wins. The team also found net 8 times in the period.

It’s sure to be a great atmosphere on Tuesday night as due to the high demand for tickets, AFC Wimbledon’s home match against current League One leaders Blackburn Rovers on Tuesday will be all-ticket. The Blues were given 774 tickets for the midweek clash and have sold the entire allocation.
