This week FootyMad's match preview focuses on the game between Blackburn Rovers and Everton at 15:00 on Saturday, 2nd February 2008 in the Premier League.
Everton face a trip to Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Toffees will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.
The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in August 2006, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1 - 1 final scoreline in a Premiership match.

Recent respective form guides
Blackburn Rovers's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While Rovers have scored 5, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.
Everton's away form is none too clever either, picking up four victories from the last six. The games have constituted a decent return of 11 goals for the Toffees, and 6 goals against.
Blackburn R.'s 38 points from 24 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 8th position. Everton sit in a healthy 4th in the league, and have picked up 43 points from their 24 games.
