    Blackburn Rovers vs Cardiff City

    Blackburn have lost their last two league matches against Cardiff, conceding seven goals in the process.

    Cardiff have conceded in each of their last 13 trips to Blackburn in league competition (W3 D3 L7).

    Jordan Rhodes is the first Blackburn player since Alan Shearer (1994/95 – 1995/96) to score 20+ league goals in consecutive seasons. Rhodes netted 27 goals in his debut season at Ewood Park and 25 in 2013/14.

    Cardiff City are unbeaten in their last five opening day fixtures in the second tier, winning four (D1).

    Cardiff (50 YC, 1RC) picked up the fewest cards in the 2013-14 Premier League season.

    Blackburn Rovers have kept just one clean sheet in their last 11 matches on the opening day of a season, winning four (D3 L4).

    Former Cardiff winger Craig Conway provided 13 assists in just 18 league appearances for Blackburn last season.

    Cardiff scored only 18 goals from open play in 2013/14: fewer than any other Premier League side.

    No side scored more headed goals in the Championship last term than Blackburn (23).

    Blackburn conceded a league-high 10 goals from the penalty spot in 2013/14.
