Blackburn Rovers have a unique opportunity to close up the gap with Wigan Athletic with a victory over Northampton when they meet on Saturday. Rovers earned a late win at Fleetwood the last time. The 2-1 win extended their unbeaten run to 16 games in the league.
Danny Graham would be expected to play in attack and Darragh Lenihan could make a return from injury. Of course Harry Chapman remains sidelined with his long term injury. Northampton are 18th on the log, with 32 points after 28 league games. They won their last game against MK Dons 2-1. They have struggled with defending so far, having conceded 49 goals and scored just 27.
The Cobblers, led by Chelsea legend jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink will likely ply the conservative route against Rovers. However, with the focus of closing the gap against Wigan, Mowbray should be able to steer his side to victory.
