  • Wolves have now won 11 of their 15 Molineux matches, nine of those triumphs featuring more than a solitary strike.
  • Wolves have only failed to score in five games this season – a divisional-low – and are averaging 2.07 goals scored per-game at home.

QPR

  • QPR have lost eight of 15 Championship fixtures since November.
  • QPR have collected 53% of their points tally against the bottom-eight sides.
  • QPR have lost 12 of 21 matches when excluding the bottom-eight.

Blackburn

  • Blackburn lost for the first time in 19 League One games last weekend – 2-0 at Plymouth.

Oldham

  • Oldham ended a nine-match winless streak by beating Bradford 2-1 at home last weekend.
  • Oldham are still without unavailable top goalscorer Eoin Doyle but signed Jonathan Benteke this week – Christian’s brother.
  • Oldham have lost each of their last four away games and eight of 15 away overall.
  • Oldham have scored in 10 of their 15 away games with 12 featuring Over 1.5 Goals.
  • Oldham have seen more Both Teams To Score winners than any League One side (71%) – they’ve kept a league-low three clean sheets with games averaging 3.19 goals.
  • Oldham have been beaten by two goals or more in four of their past six away defeats.

Blackburn to win and Over 1.5 Goals (9/10 BetStars)

  • Blackpool have failed to score in three of their last four games but have only been silenced twice in 14 home outings.
  • Blackpool have seen 10 (71%) of their 14 home games feature BTTS winners, as well as 19/30 (63%) overall.
  • Blackpool have fired in the fifth-most shots at home with home matches averaging 2.93 goals per-game.
  • Blackpool’s pitch hasn’t suffered as badly as in recent seasons – this will only be their second home match in 2018.

Walsall

  • Walsall have only won twice in their last 10 League One games but have managed to score in all bar six of their 29 fixtures.
  • Walsall have recorded only four clean sheets – the second-lowest figure in League One – only one of which was achieved away.
