Such has been Blackburn’s level of performance over recent weeks that there was an air of frustration when they were only level with struggling Barnsley at half time of Wednesday night’s fixture at Ewood Park.
Nevertheless, Ben Brereton Diaz stepped up with yet another decisive goal, the Chile international netting his 20th league strike of the campaign to extend Blackburn’s remarkable upturn in results.
Tony Mowbray‘s team now have 28 points from a possible 33 since October 23, and avoiding defeat on Sunday will see them overtake second-placed Fulham.
With the Cottagers possessing games in hand, Mowbray will not place too much focus on moving higher in the standings, but another positive result would break up the long-time status quo in the automatic promotion spots.
Rovers also head into this contest with the best home record in the division, collecting 30 points from their 13 fixtures at Ewood Park.
Barring any unforeseen selection issues, Mowbray may feel that he has no reason to make any alterations to his Blackburn XI.
While Sam Gallagher is pushing for a return in the final third, Mowbray will not want to break up the partnership of Brereton Diaz and Reda Khadra.
Danny Ward is unlikely to start for Huddersfield after feeling unwell during the early stages of the game on Thursday night.
Although Jordan Rhodes replaced him on that occasion, Josh Koroma or Fraizer Campbell may get the nod for this fixture.
Naby Sarr is expected to miss out with a back injury, while Tom Lees is unlikely to be risked due to the head injury that he sustained on Boxing Day.
