Blackburn vs Wolves Live Stream : Match Highlights & Team news from Ewood Park

Blackburn Rovers face Wolves at Ewood Park with the match live streaming on Saturday.

Wolves will kick-start the 2015/16 Championship campaign away at Blackburn Rovers on August 8th on the opening day of the season.

Wolves were unlucky to miss out on play-offs position in the league as they ended up the season on 7th with 78 points on the table, same as that of Ipswich Town, who finished 6th, thanks to their better goal difference.

Wolves won the promotion to the Championship in a record breaking manner and were tipped to challenge the best in the business in the second tier of English football as well. And they did just that but failed to go all the way.

Their poor run of form in November and early December cost them dearly.

Wolverhampton have a good coach at the helm in the form of Kenny Jacket, who took charge of the club in 2013 and led the club to League One title. And in the next season, he helped his side end the season on a high as Wolves finished the season on 7th position.

They side is beaming with confidence and will be heading into the 2015/16 season with a top two finish in sight as it will secure Wolves automatic promotion to the Premier League. Fans would expect nothing but a promotion back to the Premier League where Wolves had played for so many years and looking at the pool of players at disposal, it seems like an achievable target.

Wolves have a number of quality players in the camp and the gaffer would be looking to keep hold onto the likes of Benik Afobe, Rajiv van La Parra, Bakary Sako and former Manchester United goalie, Kuszczak. Afobe Dicko and Sako, all scored 15 goals each to take Wolves up the table and the club will be relying on them again this time to get the job done.
