Peterborough v Blackburn Rovers Odds: In form Jordan Rhodes a decent bet to score first

Henning Berg goes looking for his first win in charge of Blackburn Rovers when his side travel to struggling Peterborough for Saturday evening’s live Championship match. Rovers have picked up two points from his three games since Berg replaced Steve Kean at the helm but they will now be expected to claim all three points against a side second from bottom and suffering from a three match losing streak.

Rovers need to get back to winning ways sooner rather than later in order to get their promotion hopes back on track. Just two wins in 10 has seen them slip out of the play-offs and down to seventh in the table - eight points behind league leaders Crystal Palace. Meanwhile Peterborough's brief revival of four wins in six games is now in the past following three consecutive defeats, which leaves them 23rd and three points adrift of safety.

Despite registering just one win on the road all season (they have drawn six of their eight away matches) Rovers will fancy their chances of recording a win against struggling Peterborough, who have lost six times already at London Road Stadium. Paddy Power have installed Berg's men as the 5/4 favourites to claim the win, while Posh can be backed at 21/10, with a draw priced at 23/10.

Rovers’ in-from frontman Jordan Rhodes bagged a brace for Scotland mid-week and is the obvious 4/1 favourite to open the scoring on Saturday evening. The striker is priced at 10/11 to score anytime but could be worth backing at 5/1 to score two or more goals.

Five of Blackburn's six wins this season have been by the margin of one goal and Paddy Power Bookmakers have priced the Lancashire club at 15/2 to come away with a 2-1 win. However, considering that they have scored more than one goal in just one of their last 10 matches a 1-0 win could be a safer bet at 8/1. Rovers are also priced at 9/5 to score just the one goal in the match, while the match itself is evens to feature two or three goals.

Posh have recently started to improve at home, which is vital if they are to stand any chance of staying in the Championship. To their fans despair they lost their opening five matches at London Road, before recording back-to-back wins in the space of five days against Huddersfield and Derby late last month. However, they were unlucky to suffer their sixth home defeat of the season last weekend to high-flying Crystal Palace, who came from behind to score two goals in the last 10 minutes.

Darren Ferguson’s men have scored seven goals in their last three matches at London Road and they can be found with odds of 8/5 to score exactly one this weekend. George Boyd has three goals in his last four matches and is a tempting bet at 23/10 to score anytime, while Posh are available at 10/1 to win 1-0. Although Blackburn's fondness of drawing away this season could make a 1-1 draw tempting at 11/2.
