Blackburn Rovers vs Hartlepool Tips and Prediction
Blackburn supporters would have been worried about their chances for the upcoming season given to make a first-team signing this summer.
However, victories over Swansea City and Queens Park Rangers in which Rovers also recorded clean sheets might have altered that perspective.
Even though it is still early, Jon Dahl Tomasson’s team has exceeded all of his expectations, and at Ewood Park, anticipation is mounting.
Ben Brereton Diaz’s future will shortly be decided by the Rovers hierarchy, who will unavoidably receive offers for his services before to the close of the transfer window.
However, Blackburn’s hiring has been wise lately, and alternatives are probably already known in the event that the Chilean international chooses to play elsewhere.
Hartlepool, who are attempting to stay out of danger in League Two, will be upset with the results of their first two games, in stark contrast. Even while it might be argued that the 4
defeat at Walsall at the end of July served as a wake-up call before their home game against freshly relegated AFC Wimbledon, it still felt awful.
Positives should be seen in holding opponents to a scoreless draw after they had started the season with all of their points.
Coincidentally, these two teams faced off in a preseason friendly in the North-East, with Blackburn winning.
Hartlepool will feel as though there is a little window of opportunity to spring a surprise given that Tomasson will almost probably make significant changes to his Rovers team. In spite of this, the host team should still have too much talent to win with easy ease.
