Wycombe Wanderers vs Blackburn Rovers
Friday 2nd April 2021, k.o. 3pm GMT
Adams Park
Sky Bet Championship

The first game back after the international break sees Blackburn Rovers make their first ever appearance at Adams Park, with Gareth Ainsworth hoping his side can avenge the heavy defeat in the reverse fixture at Ewood Park when he locks horns with his boyhood club.

Ainsworth's return to the famous ground where he attended countless games as a young fan ended in a 5-0 defeat back in September, as Wanderers learned a harsh lesson about the quality on show in the Championship.

Now to remain at this level, the Chairboys must embark on a sensational run of form throughout their final eight games, starting with the battle with a side in 15th place who've won only one of their last 12 matches.

Then the Blues head to Rotherham on Easter Monday in another must-win encounter, though for now, all eyes are on Friday's fixture with Wanderers hoping to repeat their efforts against Preston on their last weekend home game.
