Rovers In Mixed Run
It means the Championship side come into this match in mixed form, with two of every result in their last six matches.
They remain second bottom of the Championship on goal difference, level on points with Wigan but two behind Burton.
They progressed to this round of the FA Cup, after beating Blackpool 2-0 at home in round four.
Despite home advantage Blackburn come into this match as underdogs, with United’s Premier League results informing those odds.

It was another excellent result for Mourinho’s men, who are now in the driving seat when they had to Paris next week.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored a gritty hat-trick to give United all three points, with the Swede moving to 23 goals this season.
