Swansea City v Blackburn Rovers – Head to Head

The Swans welcome Blackburn Rovers to the Swansea.com stadium tomorrow for their first home game of the season and the chance to build on last weekend’s 1-1 draw at Rotherham.

The overall record between the two teams shows the Swans trailing slightly with Blackburn ahead 23-16 in head to head matches with 8 draws.

In recent times though the record is much more in favour of the Swans with Blackburn’s only win in the last eight being on the corresponding weekend last season when they inflicted a 2-1 defeat on Russell Martin in his first game in charge.

Michael Obafemi’s 16th minute goal back in February was enough to settle this fixture last season, the lowest scoring game of the last 12 meetings between these sides which has produced a total of 40 goals in those 12 games.

There has only ever been one 0-0 draw between the sides – a clash at Ewood Park back in our promotion winning season of 1980/81.

Been watching the Swans since the very late 1970s and running the Planet Swans website (in all its current and previous guises since the summer of 2001 As it stood JackArmy.net was right at the forefront of some of the activity against Tony Petty back in 2001, breaking many of the stories of the day as fans stood against the actions where the local media failed. Was involved with the Swans Supporters Trust from 2005, for the large part as Chairman before standing down in the summer of 2020.
