How can I watch Blackburn Rovers v Sheffield Wednesday? Who is the ref? The latest odds

Sheffield Wednesday will be looking to build on their win over Coventry City last weekend when they travel to Blackburn Rovers on Saturday.

Thursday, 24th December 2020, 8:39 am

The Owls won their first game since early November to help lift them off the foot of the Sky Bet Championship and move to within four points of safety.

Victory over the Sky Blues also saw recently-appointed manager Tony Pulis chalk up his first win at the helm – his 100th victory in the Championship.

Now attention switches to the Boxing Day clash with Tony Mowbray’s Rovers’ side, who go into the game in 11th place having lost 1-0 at Stoke City last time out.
