Aynsley Pears, Dom Hyam, Harry Pickering, Hayden Carter, Joe Rankin-Costello, Ryan Hedges and Sam Gallagher are all likely unavailable for Blackburn.

Sammie Szmodics to score anytime @ 2/1

While Blackburn continue to look for consistency in their results, attacker Sammie Szmodics is having a great season individually. The attacking midfielder is the leading marksman in the Championship with 10 goals so far, and he will carry Rovers' biggest goal threat at Stoke on Saturday.

Although his side lost a Lancashire derby to Preston North End at home before the international break, Szmodics was on the scoresheet, so he will be pumped up to continue his fine form in front of goal this weekend.

Over 1.5 Blackburn goals @ 6/4

Consistency in their results may be frustrating, but Rovers have shown on quite a few occasions this season that they can score a lot of goals. They have scored 24 in the Championship so far this season, and they have scored at least two goals in six of their 16 games played so far.

Stoke have also found consistency difficult in this campaign and there have been times where there have been questions raised about their defending. Rovers will need a response after their late defeat against Preston last time out, so the players will be fired up upon their return to league action.
