Manchester City will be facing Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park on Sunday, 25th April, 2011. Manchester City are trying to stay in the first four place in the league table while Blackburn rovers are trying not to get in the relegation zone as they are at 16th place in the table. Blackburn have not recorded a victory in their last 10 matches, stretching back to late January when they beat West Brom at Ewood Park. That poor run of form has seen Rovers fall from seventh to 16th, increasing the pressure on manager Steve Kean.Despite their poor recent run Blackburn’s home record is actually not that bad; they have only lost one of the last five games and have only lost four games at home all season.Manchester City’s recent form could also be better; they have won twice in their last five league matches and in their last Premier League outing they were comprehensively beaten by Liverpool. However, victory over fierce rivals Manchester United in the FA Cup semi-finals should have lifted their spirits. Last match between Man City and Blackburn was played back in September 11, 2010 and match was ended as a draw by 1-1. Could Man City maintain their UEFA Champions League qualifying position by winning this match?
