Blackburn have not recorded successive victories in the Championship since the turn of the year, a period spanning five matches, but Tony Mowbray‘s side have still managed to reach this stage in the automatic promotion spots.
At a time when Ben Brereton Diaz has missed matches through representing Chile, Mowbray will be satisfied with an eight-point return from a possible 15, as well as recording another four clean sheets.
Although there was disappointment after the 2-0 defeat at Hull City, Rovers have collected four points from meetings versus in-form Middlesbrough and Luton Town.
With the teams immediately behind them having a game in hand, complacency will not be an issue for his squad, but the stakes have been raised ahead of this contest considering that they can move clear of Bournemouth and Queens Park Rangers.
Blackburn added Wolverhampton Wanderers wideman Ryan Giles to their ranks on deadline day, the left-sided player having already registered nine assists for Cardiff City earlier in the campaign.
With Kyle Naughton expected to sit out this match through injury, Ryan Manning is likely to drop back into Swansea’s defensive three.
Joel Latibeaudiere appears most likely to deputise at left wing-back, while Joel Piroe may return in place of Michael Obafemi.
Given the lack of time between travelling back from South America and this game, Brereton Diaz is unlikely to be considered for a spot in the Blackburn XI.
Sam Gallagher will miss this contest after coughing up blood during the Luton game, leaving Mowbray to hope that Reda Khadra recovers from a hamstring injury.
Giles will almost certainly be handed his debut as a replacement for left wing-back Tayo Edun, who is carrying an ankle problem, while Ryan Hedges is available after joining from Aberdeen.
